Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Cinnamon Stick Santas



Ho Ho Ho!  Quick & cute holiday ornaments make great gift embellishments for everyone on your list.  These are very simple to make and their delicious cinnamon scent adds to the warm homey feel of the holiday! 
Materials: 

Whole cinnamon sticks
Acrylic paints - red, black, green, white, peach, dark blue
Assorted fine paint brushes
Jute
Hot glue gun
Wax paper 




Instructions:

Place a sheet of wax paper on your work surface (protects the work surface and keeps the ornaments clean while each side is drying - scrap paper can stick to the wet paint, newsprint can transfer and discolor the wet paint). 

Follow the steps shown below to paint your Santas.  Paint the back first and let dry.  then continue with the remaining steps 

Use a hot glue gun to add a loop of jute to the top of your cinnamon stick to hang.
