I love the smell of cinnamon in the house during the holidays. Cinnamon-scented pine cones, cinnamon spiced cider, and cinnamon rolls, just to name a few favorites. The warming scent of cinnamon filling the air makes things feel all cozy and snuggly. I’m pretty sure it’s what a hug from Christmas would smell like. This DIY Cinnamon Stick Tree Garland brings that wonderful smell of cinnamon into your home and looks so darn adorable doing it.

I have been looking for ways to bring the cinnamon smell into the house during the holiday season without having to buy cinnamon-scented pine cones each year. Don’t get me wrong, there will always be a special place in my heart for those scented pines cones. I absolutely adore being greeted at stores with their cinnamony smell. But, at this point, I have bags upon bags of pinecones in my craft closet that no longer have their cinnamon scent. It’s time to consider other options. Diversify my cinnamon smells if you will. It’s time to give cinnamon sticks and cinnamon essential oil a chance to show what they can do.

How to Make Cinnamon Stick Tree Garland

This adorable rustic DIY cinnamon stick tree garland is SUPER easy, a perfect craft to do with kids. The garland puts off a subtle cinnamon smell which can be revived each year by adding a drop or two of cinnamon oil to each stick. Take this garland to the next level by adding battery-powered LED lights, try and buy a brand of twinkle lights with a remote that turns them on and off.

Items Needed to Make Cinnamon Stick Tree Garland

To make this DIY Cinnamon Stick Tree Garland, you will need the following items

  • Twine
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Garland (regular, flocked, any color)
  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  • Strong scissors or wire cutters
  • Fabric scraps
  • Battery-powered LED lights (optional)

Directions to Make Cinnamon Strick Tree Garland

  1. Gather your supplies and plug in your hot glue gun to get it warming up.
  2. Cut a piece of twine as long as you want your garland to be, adding 6 inches to each end for mounting. You will need 1 tree for every 6 inches of garland.  
  3. Cut pieces of garland at 1’, 2’, and 3’ inch pieces. I used flocked garland because I wanted a “snowy pine tree” look, but you can use any garland. Silver or a colored garland would also look really awesome.
  4. Starting at the top of the cinnamon stick, glue the 1’, 2’, and 3’ pieces down, leaving a little space between each piece.
  5. Glue a twine loop on the top, back of the cinnamon stick.
  6. From your scrap fabric, cut your fabric strips 1 inch wide and 3-6 inches long (depending on the look you want). I used a combination of both short (3inches) and long (6 inches) strips.
  7. Use a fabric strip to secure the cinnamon stick pine trees to the twine, spacing them 6 inches apart.
  8. Optional – Tie fabric scraps to the twine in between each cinnamon tree.
