You can make these simple scented Christmas ornaments from clay.

Or they look lovely scattered across a Christmas table or hanging from the banisters.

Pinecones are synonymous with Christmas.

They have a lovely gentle aroma, but sometimes it’s good to give them a little boost.

You can do this buying spritzing them with a little homemade oil and water spritz.

There’s a great tutorial over on Kleinworth & Co. 

The tutorial suggests using cinnamon fragrance, but I also think it would be lovely to use a pine fragrance.

7. SCENTED PINECONE FIRE STARTERS

Now this has to be my absolute favourite idea for making your home smell like Christmas.

Pinecone scented fire starters.

Dried pinecones make excellent fire starters.

If you’re in the U.S click over to Etsy to buy these gorgeous fire starters from Southern Escentuals.

If you’re UK based you should take a look at these gorgeous scented pinecone fire starters by Hunter Gatherer over on Not On The High Street.
