DIY Fireplace Color Pinecones

I have fond memories of sitting on the hearth of the fireplace and watching the flames dance within the fireplace. We had a bag of Fireplace Pinecones that I loved to throw into the fire and watch the colors explode within the flames. I never understood my mother's warning, "use only a few of those". Now being an adult I understand the preciousness of those pinecones, they were expensive! If you would like to recreate this experience in your own home, I found a tutorial that teaches you how to make your own Fireplace Pinecones for a lot less than buying them. Thanks to Birds and Blooms for the lesson. [link]
