DIY Ornaments: Cinnamon Stick Stars

November 15, 2015 4 By EngineerMommy

We love decorating the house for Christmas. There’s something really quite special about trimming the tree with the kids, listening to Christmas music and enjoying some yummy baked treats. This year, we are going with a “Rustic Glam” theme for the Christmas tree. I love ornaments that have a rustic feel to them… you know, ornaments with little creatures, natural elements, burlap, wood, etc. And I’m combining those with a few glamorous pieces- ones with glitter, sparkles, sequins, etc. So today, I’m excited to share with you all a DIY ornament that uses cinnamon sticks to form little stars. I also added some faux Christmas berries and glitter, because glitter makes everything a little better! ūüôā

Another benefit of these cute DIY ornaments is that they are made of cinnamon sticks, which makes them beautifully fragrant! Is there a scent more iconic of this season than cinnamon?! I think not. Making these DIY ornament stars was a lot of fun! Stay tuned because I will be sharing in a few days another DIY ornament idea using cinnamon sticks!!
