Cinnamon ornaments are far and away my favorite kind of ornaments because they smell so great. When I was younger, the little Christmas tree in my room was covered in them. When my husband and I were dating and living in different states, I mailed him a little tree and cinnamon ornaments hand-stamped with the logo of our alma mater. We still have a few on our tree now.
They smell fantastic, but the brown cinnamon color can be a little boring. I was so happy to find this tutorial from Martha Stewart on decorating cinnamon ornaments with glitter. I had never even thought to cover or paint them, and I really I love the bird theme.
