I was searching in my work space this morning and discovered some ornaments from previous holiday seasons. I enjoy holiday decorating with herbs because it is both simple, yet oh so fragrant. Hopefully, I will get a chance to make a garland with these cinnamon spice ornaments, stars, hearts and birds and use a piece of fishing line, a needle and thread dried bay leaves between the cinnamon spice ornaments to adorn our mantle.

Since these ornaments are more than a few years old, I may use a little cinnamon essential oil to add additional fragrance to the ornaments. The other night we had our master gardener holiday party and cinnamon spice ornaments were a gift for each participant. I am giving you that recipe so hopefully you can make some ornaments, either large or small, before your holiday parties begin!
