I found a small bag of sand at our dollar store. It’s used as filler for vases and comes in different colors. I thought the regular sand color would be perfect with the bleach pine cones.

    Oh my, please do not put bleached cones in the oven! Heating bleach releases chlorine gas which is what we used in WWI to choke out our enemies. I would also recommend rinsing the pine cones several times after removing them from the bleach water to get the bleach off. Or just spray paint the pine cones.

    Yes, I’ve bleached pinecones and love the effect! I did a post on bleaching back in mid October and got lovely responses. I was amazed at the different appearances of each cone after drying. I had no problems bleaching them using straight dollar store bleach.
