Cinnamon sticks (buy in bulk to save money)
Embellishments (small pinecones, small end from fir branch, small piece of holly, bow).
Take a few cinnamon sticks, and using one end of the ribbon, tie them into a bundle. Make a loop on the other end of the ribbon, suitable size loop for hanging on the Christmas tree.
Using your glue gun, add an embellishment to the top of the bundle of cinnamon sticks, where the ribbon length starts – it should cover the knot you made.
You can also use these for toppers on presents or to tie to the handle of a gift bag, and you can attach a name tag to them. They also look great places on table settings during holiday dinner.
