Simple DIY project using free picked up pinecones turned into a neat colored flames to use in your outdoor fall fires.
We had collected a large bucket of pinecones and I roasted them at 200 for 20 min to make sure they were clean, no bugs/eggs etc being brought into the house itself.
The video explains it.. one gallon warm water,
one cup of your choice of
- Borax -green-yellow flames
- Salt- yellow
- Epsom Salt- white
- Boric Acid- Green
Once Drained after soaking, allow to dry in well on a tray, shaking the tray to move them around twice a day until fully dry, then bag them up and store till needed. use a few at a time in the fire for color changing flames.
The reason, I do not have a wee video of these in action yet? this was on the plan for the weekend.. but.. Snow! lol
