Cinnamon Stick Cloth Christmas Tree Ornament #DIY

11:30 AM

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
½ teaspoon cream of tartar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup chilled butter salted
2/3 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 415 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar and salt.
Using a pastry blender, your hands, or a knife and fork, cut in the butter until the flour resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the milk and stir with a fork until the mixture comes together. On a lightly floured surface pull out the dough and knead until it is smooth.
Roll out dough until it is ½ inch thick. Cut out dough using a 3 inch biscuit butter, or you can cut into squares. With remaining dough, reform and roll out to ½ inch and repeat until all the dough is used and made into biscuits.
Arrange biscuit dough on prepared baking sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until risen and a golden brown.
Serve immediately, or set on counter or serving dish until ready to serve.

Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday in the history of all holidays. I love everything about it and the earlier I can start decking the halls, the better. Each year I try to do a few different DIY projects that help add to our ever growing collection of decorations, and this year I started with a fun ornament. This cinnamon stick cloth Christmas tree ornament craft can be made with any fabric or ribbon remnants you have laying around the house. It's easy to make, and you can even get the kids involved making one of their own.

With this craft, it is easy to work some memories into the mix as well. Some of the cloth in my cinnamon stick ornament is from dresses that I wore to my high school formal dances many years ago. I retrieved the scraps from my mom and used some of them to make this ornament for a keepsake. You could do the same with old baby clothes, t-shirts, etc.

Cinnamon Stick Christmas Tree Craft



Step 1: Begin by cutting various different fabrics and ribbon scraps into thin straight lines.

Step 2: Start at the bottom of the cinnamon stick and tie on the scraps of fabric and ribbon, alternating various patterns and colors as you work your way up the cinnamon stick. Double knot the scraps as you tie them on so that they do not come loose later. Also, be sure to leave a small space at the bottom of the cinnamon stick and at the top as well.

Step 3: Once you have tied on your scraps and ribbon. Use scissors to trim them into the shape of a triangle, where they are longer at the bottom and get shorter as you move to the top. You can see the photo for reference.

Step 4: Using a hot glue gun, attach a large button to the top of your Christmas tree ornament in the space left empty at the top of the cinnamon stick.

Step 5: Turn the ornament over, and use the glue gun to attach a loop of ribbon to the back of the cinnamon stick so that it forms a hanger for you to hang your ornament with.
