Cinnamon Stick Christmas Tree Craft

By Teachers.Net Resources

by Cheryl Ristow (aggie/1/ca/retired)


    • 1 6-inch long cinnamon stick
    • 1 small terra cotta pot (about 2 inches high)
    • 5 strips of green fabric (I used green and white gingham). Tear or cut strips to about a 1×8″ size
    • walnut-sized piece of floral clay
    • 4-5 brightly colored shirt buttons
    • 1 star-shaped button or star shaped wooden piece colored w/yellow marker or painted yellow
    • glue (I like Aleene’s)
    • glue gun
    • jute or ribbon for hanger
    • scissors
        Pinch off a small piece of floral clay. Roll it into a ball.

    •   Place clay in pot. Insert cinnamon stick. Using a glue gun, glue star to the top of the cinnamon stick.
      Using a simple over-and-under knot, tie strips of fabric onto cinnamon stick.Trim fabric strips into a Christmas tree shape by cutting each strip a little shorter than the one before it.

      Glue the small colored buttons to the middle of the cinnamon stick. Glue some jute (or ribbon) to the back of the stick to make a hanger.
