One of the fun traditions that my friend has, is creating Christmas decor & ornaments during their Thanksgiving festivities. If there were more women in the crew that I’m feeding for Thanksgiving, I’d so start it as our own. Since I don’t though, I just have to randomly get my DIY to create some fun Christmas pieces. Today I’m sharing a centerpiece that smells good; Cinnamon Stick floral Centerpiece, for Christmas!
I wasn’t sure how this would turn out but I am thrilled with it! I originally planned to use red mesh but I didn’t like that so I switched to the twine. I’m so glad I did! I think it helped lighten all the dark colors of the centerpiece, plus it gives an added rustic feel to it.
The twine was the most expensive thing, coming in at $5.47 at Walmart but good lord, it’s a huge spool that will last for many, many projects! Totally worth the investment and it really makes the decorshine. And since the flowers were only $0.97 cents each, it made paying a little more for the twine easier.
A glue gun is needed for this craft or any other clear, fast drying glue. You can buy a vase, tin decor, or container but I used a mason jar. I’ve bought vases at Walmart before though and have used them in other table centerpieces.
DIY – Cinnamon Stick Floral Centerpiece for Christmas
- Glue cinnamon sticks all the way around your jar.
- Wrap some twine (or a ribbon) around the jar a few times and tie a bow.
- Add your flowers. I snipped a small red flower from the bouquet and stuck in the twine for some extra umpf.
That’s it!! You could also do away with the flower all together and buy a small candle instead! When it warms up, it will make the cinnamon sticks aroma flow through the home!
