Cinnamon Scented Christmas Tree Stamp Decorataions
I don’t know what it is about Christmas tree’s but they are a major theme in my crafting this season. I’ve made, pine cone ones, felted sweater ones, and a giant wooden one. The latest addition to the collection are these lovely Christmas tree stamp ornaments.
Nothing smells quite like Christmas, all that lovely pine, and cinnamon. I’ve used a cinnamon stick in these ornaments so not only do they look gorgeous but they smell gorgeous too!
I show how easy it is to make your own Christmas tree stamps for these ornaments. The stamps I made for this craft will be used again and again, to make cards and even decorate some gift wrap.

How to Make the Christmas tree stamps
- Firstly either print out my Christmas tree designs or draw your own. Using the tracing paper draw around the trees and transfer the image to craving block.
- Next using the craving tool and scissors carve out the stamp. Remembering the raised parts of the carving block are the bits that hold the ink and print.
- Using double sided sticky tape stick your tree stamp to an acrylic block. I use double sided tape so I can easily change the tree designs and only use one block.
How to make the Christmas tree ornaments
- Load up your Christmas tree stamp with ink, by dabbing the stamp pad with ink.
- Place your cloth on a surface with a little bit of give (felt on a table or foam board). Pressing down firmly stamp your image onto the fabric. It’s a good idea to do a test run on paper first.
- You may have noticed I also made a little star stamp for the top of my trees.
- Cut around the stamped tree and a piece of backing cloth the same size.
- Place the 2 pieces of cloth right sides together, pin and sew leaving the bottom edge open.
- Turn the ornament right side out and stuff with fiberfill or old pillow stuffing.
- Cut the cinnamon sticks so they are about 3 inches long. Dip the end in the fabric glue and stick them into the bottom of the ornaments to form a trunk
- Finally, close up the Christmas tree ornaments either with fabric glue or stitch them. Then sew in a loop of bakers twine onto the top of the ornament for hanging.
The cinnamon sticks give these trees a lovely Christmasy smell. You can make these even stronger by using some Christmas fragrance oil in the stuffing.
I think I will actually hang my Christmas tree stamp ornaments in a garland to show off the six different designs.
