With all the festivities of fall comes the task of decorating our homes for the season! I love decorating my home with bits and pieces of the outdoors, burning pumpkin candles and you can’t leave out the aroma of cinnamon either. Wreaths are an important element in my home decor, but I don’t seem to take a lot of time to make them for myself. Boooo! Recently, I saw a number of cinnamon door wreaths on Pinterest and thought I needed to give it a try. I put my own spin on it and I have to say that I think it turned out pretty awesome — and I love the aroma that lingers! Sniff-Sniff. Do you smell it? Cinnamon.
- 3″ Cinnamon Sticks (1 – 2 bags, depending on your wreath size)
- Grapevine Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun
- Ribbon or Fabric
Let’s get this project underway. As I mentioned above — you’re going to need a lot of cinnamon sticks! They are the key “ingredient” in this door wreath.
Now for the fun part — lots and lots of glueing! You’re simply going to glue and place, and then do some more glueing and placing of the cinnamon sticks. You’ll create your own masterpiece as you stack and arrange the cinnamon sticks onto the wreath.
I put a few on the inside , but I wanted the grapevine to be predominant on the outside of the door wreath. It gave it a more rustic, natural look, which is what I prefer. Once you’re done, fill in any holes or gaps (you may have to break a cinnamon in half every so often to have a smaller piece to fill in any spots) and add a pretty bow. Voila! You’re done! Here’s a closer look at mine hanging.
