Cinnamon Stick Tree
- Fabric scraps
- Cinnamon stick
- Small star (wood, craft foam, or sticker)
Cut several strips of fabric about eight inches long and ½ inch wide. Starting at one end of the cinnamon stick, knot a fabric strip around stick. Continue tying fabric around stick with all knots facing forward, leaving equal lengths of fabric on each side of the knots. End about one inch from the bottom of the stick.
Take your scissors and, holding one side of the fabric strips taut, cut the strips diagonally up toward the top of the stick. Complete the cut on the opposite side, making a triangular shape with the fabric strips. Glue the star to the top of the “tree.”
A few ideas of what to do with your finished tree:
- Attach a pin back with hot glue and wear it as a brooch.
- Add a piece of string to hang as an ornament.
- Hot glue to cardstock for a holiday card.
