Cinnamon Stick Tree Ornaments
These little triangular trees are so satisfying to make. They stitch up quick, smell amazing (fresh cinnamon sticks!) and have the perfect little balance of homemade simplicity. For bonus points, print your own fabric. I used an pencil eraser tip to print grey dots on grey fabric.
Batting or Stuffing
Needle & Thread
Heavy White Threat
CUT FABRIC & STITCH
- Create a simple triangular tree pattern & cut out a double layer of fabric, right sides together. My trees measure about 3" tall.
- I cut out a whole bunch at once as this is an easy assembly line projects.
- Using your needle & thread, simply stitch up one side and down the other.
- Once your tree is stitched on 2 sides, turn it inside out. Use something pointy (like a knitting needle) to gently shove the top of the tree into a nice peak.Fill your tiny tree with cotton batting or stuffing.
- Gently crease the bottom seam in 1/8" to create a nice edge.
- Insert a cinnamon stick at the tree trunk and stitch the bottom seam, working around the cinnamon stick. Stitch tight enough around the cinnamon stick so it doesn't fall out.
To create a loop to hang the ornament, use 8" or so of heavy thread. With a large needle, insert at the top of the tree, make a large loop, stitch around and double knot.

Not that I have loads of time to sit around and knit, but I am a sucker for a cute knitting project. This Octopus by Purl Bee is totally irresistible. And if you've ever had a slobbery 10 month old, you know how perfect those tentacles are, ha!

This is brilliant. Roller shades are a cheap solution to install in the kid's room to block out that blessed sunlight that wakes the kids up wayyyy too early. But? They're cheap and a bit boring and seem to accumulate way to many sticky finger marks.
So? Naku of the blog Bambula DIY'd it. A can of black spray paint sprayed at the bottom to create an amazing gradient effect.
