Supplies for Cinnamon Stick Christmas Tree Ornament.

Supplies for ribbon Christmas ornaments:

  • Cinnamon sticks (you can get these almost anywhere)
  • Pieces of ribbon
  • Hot Glue and Glue Gun
  • Twine or string

How to make ribbon tree ornament:

Step 1: Tie on your ribbons to the cinnamon stick. I used 4 pieces of ribbon. Try to use different ribbons that coordinate. This will look great hanging on your tree.

Step 2: Trim each of the ribbons. You want to trim the ribbons so they form the shape of a Christmas tree. Cut the ribbon so they are arranged shortest to longest.

Make sure the ribbon is secure. If you are concerned the ribbon will come loose, you can put a piece of glue on the back of the tied ribbon. This will help to keep them in place.

Step 3: Top with a star button to complete the Christmas tree. Another idea is to cut out a star out of felt.

Step 4: Add the string. Glue on your string to hang the ornament.

Variation Ideas:

  • Scraps of fabric. This is a great alternative to ribbon and the perfect way to use scrap fabric. It looks rustic and perfect for these ornaments.
  • Burlap. Instead of ribbon, use strips of burlap. This would be so cute. You can use traditional burlap or try other colors.
  • Leftover Ribbon. Utilize your leftover Christmas ribbon for this project. You can really use any ribbon that you might have in your craft box.

    The project does not take much ribbon so scrap ribbon is perfect. It is the perfect way to use ribbon that might not be long enough for other things.
  • Embellishments. Top the ornaments with pom poms, buttons or anything you like. It is not necessary but certainly adds an extra touch if you desire.

More ways to use these ornaments:

  • Hang inside a closet. Freshen up your closet with one of these cinnamon ornaments. The smell will quickly freshen up the small space.
  • Bathroom. Tuck one in the bathroom cabinet or a basket. Your bathroom will always smell great thanks to the cinnamon smell.
  • Wreath. Embellish a wreath with multiple cinnamon stick trees. They will add a festive touch while making the wreath smell heavenly.
