Cinnamon Bird Ornaments - Part II

I recently posted a link to Martha Stewart's cinnamon bird ornaments, but I decided to design my own! Follow the instructions on the Martha Stewart website and download my bird ornament sheet for additional designs.

Christmas is approaching fast, but for those of you with some free time, this is a great holiday craft and they smell delicious!

What a lovely alternative to the evergreen wreath for your door. No pine needles to clean up! This is one of my favorites from the Constant Gatherer (Katie Runnels). See her Etsy shop, for other great wreaths!

I was a participant in the October PikaPackage, a collection of artists' goodies put together by Amy Ng over at the Pikaland blog. (Great blog, by the way). A perk of being a participant is receiving your very own PikaPackage. Here are the goodies included in mine. You can buy your own and receive 3, 5 or 10 -item goodie bags.

1. Sarah Harvey - Rose 3 & Gnome Badges
2. The Lapwing Printworks - Letterpress Pemberly Card
3. Oh Bara - Hive Etching
4. Cori Dantini - Rx flyer Aceo
5. Cate Anevski - Strawberry Panda Hat

DIY Cinnamon Bird Ornaments

Take a look over at Martha, for instructions on how to make your own cinnamon bird ornaments, from 3 simple ingredients - cinnamon, applesauce, and glue! They smell delicious. I made cinnamon gift tags last year. I will be sure to make some of these ornaments.
