I am so excited for this series! I've joined 11 other bloggers in a fun 12 Days Of Christmas Ornaments Series! For the next 12 Days, we will show you 12 new handmade ornaments that you can make too! These are all pretty simple to make and can be hung on your family tree or given as gifts to friends, family, neighbors and teachers too! I hope you will come back and check out all 12 days worth...just think, by the end of the 12 days, you will have seen 144 homemade ornaments!
For day one, I'm going to share a super easy Cinnamon Sticks Star Christmas Ornament! It smells absolutely amazing, and is so easy to make...let me show you!
All you need is some cinnamon sticks, a glue gun and some twine or an ornament hook.
You simply lay your cinnamon sticks in the shape of a star and hot glue the ends of each point together. You can use the star below as a guide!
Isn't it just the cutest? No frills or glitter (which I absolutely still love), just a natural looking ornament with an amazing smell!
Tie a little jute twine, ribbon or string and hang on your tree!
You can make multiples and hang them all over your tree and your house will smell like Christnas for sure! We are putting together a small tree in our home that will hold all of our ornaments from the 12 Days Of Christmas series, and I think we are going to use the Cinnamon Star as our tree topper! I can't wait to share more homemade ornaments with you...here are all of the fabulous ornaments that are being shared on day one! Make sure to take a look around and pin your favorite ones to your Pinterest boards!
