Killing Off Insects Before Making Crafts With Outdoor Items

Before using any natural stuff like pinecones or seed pods you have gathered in holiday decor, line a shallow pan with foil and put them into the oven at 200 degrees for about 45 minutes. This will kill any insects living inside. You don't want uninvited guests crawling onto your holiday table.

many thanks,
