With Thanksgiving tomorrow, it's about time to get into the holiday spirit. With all the gifts and spending, it's nice to have a DIY project to save a little money! This winter wreath is the perfect craft for just that. It's perfectly festive and it smells wonderful. Here's what you need:

Wooden wreath ring

80 to 120 6-inch cinnamon sticks (120 if you want a thick wreath)

Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Seasonal ribbon

Using a hot glue gun, glue the thickest cinnamon sticks onto its base, working your way around the ring.

Angle the cinnamon sticks so that they point outward with a natural slant.

Layer your cinnamon sticks on top of each other until the wreath is full. Fill in any gaps with the thinner cinnamon sticks.

Attach a ribbon.

Hang it up and enjoy!
