The next step would be pressing a lid, cookie cutter or cap into the clay to create the shape of your pendant. Add a hole that you will string your DIY pendant with.

After cooling them, place them in a large resealable plastic bag and close it properly. Put some drops of essential oil and add a bit clean water in a spray bottle. Shake it up and generously spray the pine cones. Leave the bag tightly closed for four to seven weeks in order to infuse the pine cones with the scent.
Gather the essential materials including braided wick rope, wick tabs, unscented soy candle wax and essential oil. Assemble wicks properly. Now melt some wax. Cool then down. Pour the cooled wax in a container and allow it to sit for a few moments, watch the top and bottom to begin to solidify around the container, and then drop in the assembled tab and wick. Let the DIY candle solidify for some hours and then trim the wick down to 1/4th inch.
