These are so much fun!!!
When I do candle pours it is almost impossible to mix the exact perfect amount and so there is always a wee bit of wax that I call "over-pour" and all year long I keep the over-pour wax in a special pouring pot - then when it is close to Christmas I use it all up by waxing these beautiful big pine cones!
The pine cones can be used in fireplaces, woodstoves and open fire pits and they smell wonderful as they are truly a mixture of essential oils and phthalate-free fragrance oils from all of the candle batches made throughout the year.
These cones come from our wonderful friends that live in Okanagan Falls, BC and they are about 5-6 inches tall. Once I coat them with the wax and they harden they are ready to use as fire starters.
They burn for about 20-30 minutes and will ensure that your fire gets going before they are are all used up.
