Hi Sew Woodsy readers! I am Keri, the sugar-fueled, paint-covered author over at Shaken Together where I am celebrating a creative life! I love the color red, lists, reality TV, coffee with excessive cream, singing at the top of my lungs, pretty paper, mason jars, baking and my family! Speaking of family, I have been married for 13 years and we have two crazy, unbelievably cool boys and two equally crazy cats. By day, I work in HR, and by night, between baseball games and school projects and in the wee hours of the morning, I love to share and inspire with easy recipes, DIY projects, seasonal crafts and gifts! You can find me getting all social on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, too!
Handmade ornaments are one of my favorite holiday traditions! I love to see our tree full of glittered pine cones hung next to hand prints from my boys and beautifully crafted mini embroidery hoop ornaments. So, when Katie asked me to participate in the 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments, I was so thrilled to participate! A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a bag of cinnamon curls and rose hips that smelled absolutely divine and I knew I wanted to create a fragrant ornament for our tree. What did I come up with?
Cinnamon Curl Canning Ring Wreath Ornaments
The Merry Materials:
Bag of cinnamon curls and rose hips (I found these at my local craft store and used a 40% off coupon)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
The Tree-Trimming Tutorial:
- Separate the cinnamon curls and rose hips.
- Select a cinnamon curl with a large opening and center it on the top of your canning ring. You will string your ribbon through this curl for hanging.
- Using hot glue, attach cinnamon curls around the outside of the canning ring.
- Cut out two holly leaves from moss green felt and hot glue on your wreath.
- Hot glue on a pretty red rose hip in the center of the holly leaves.
- Thread a length of ribbon through the center cinnamon curl and knot it at the top for hanging.
These are a bit heavy so find a good strong branch on your tree to hang them. You can also tie them on a wrapped package or hang them on a door handle to greet your guests with the holiday cinnamon scent!

Katie – Thanks SO much for having me over today! Hope to see you all again soon!
