These ornaments have the advantage of both looking cute and smelling great at the same time. The trick to making these cinnamon stick trees is to soak them in water for a couple of hours before starting. This will make it easier to cut the sticks to length and also to thread holes through their centers.

Things you’ll need:
Cinnamon sticks
Bowl
Warm water
Embroidery thread
Medium to small sized beads
Serrated knife
Embroidery needle

Things to do:
1. Soak the cinnamon sticks in warm water for a few hours to soften them.

2. Cut the sticks into graduated lengths, each about ¼ shorter than the last, with the serrated knife.

3. Pierce through the bark with the embroidery needle at the center of each stick. If your cinnamon sticks are particularly hard, you may need to a drill with a small bit.

4. Thread the tree, starting with a bead, then the longest stick, then a bead, then the next longest, until you reach the last bean, finish with a bead and then tie the rest into a loop for hanging.
