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.

Cinnamon spice and gingerbread cookie ornaments from years gone by.

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!
