Here is a fun fall craft for the whole family to enjoy! Get outside, enjoy the soon to be crisp fall weather and gather some pine cones. Here are a few of our favorites we’ve found from some great blogs. Click on the link to find a tutorial. (Before bringing Pine Cones into your house for crafts, REMEMBER to Bake the Bugs Out of them first! Preheat Oven to 200 Degrees and Bake Pine Cones for 45 Minutes! Spread your pine cones out and don’t bake all at once)

What you’ll need :
3 Tbsp Borax
1 Cup Boiling Water
Ribbon (curling ribbon works best, we used gold cording)
Stick (you can use straws too!)
The color of pipe cleaner determines the color of your geodes.
-Shape pipe cleaner and thread ribbon through the outer edge.
-Lower it into your empty container and using your stick tie the ends around it so that your pipe cleaner does not touch the container. Once it is tied to the right height, remove from container.
-Bring water to a boil and pour into container. Add Borax and stir until completely dissolved.
-Add pipe cleaner and cover with dish cloth.
-Let sit for at least 5 hours.
-Remove and carefully pull out your ribbon from geode
-Be amazed at your new creation!
