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 but good lord, it’s a huge spool that will last for many, many projects! Totally worth the investment and it really makes the decor shine. 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 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!
Y’all should see some of the other Christmas goodies that me and Truett have planned to make! SO FUN! Until then…..
