[ Edit ] Crafting with Cinnamon Sticks
- Use cinnamon sticks and leather cord to make fragrant ornaments. Thread a piece of leather cord, about long, through the hollow center of 3 cinnamon sticks. Fold the cinnamon sticks into a triangle shape and then pull the cord to secure the shape. Tie the loose ends together at the top. To hang the ornament, cut another piece of leather cord. Tie it around the top of the triangle and tie it in a knot to secure. 
- You can also use a piece of yarn or hemp instead of a leather cord.  For more of a holiday vibe, use craft glue to glue a piece of tree wreath on the lower corner of the triangle cinnamon ornament. 
- Make a fall cinnamon stick candle. Roughly chop 4 cinnamon sticks and set aside. Place your candle holder (you can use a jar, small bowl or whatever small container you want) on a flat surface. Place one end of a light basket in the center of the bowl and then wrap the other end around a pen to hold the wick straight up and in place. Melt candle wax in a nonstick pan on low heat. Once melted, mix the chopped cinnamon sticks into the wax and quickly pour the hot wax into the candle holder to fill it about ¾ of the way up. 
- Allow the wax to cool and harden for at least 15 minutes before removing the pencil and cutting the wick if necessary.
- To make your light cinnamon scent stronger, add a few drops of cinnamon extract to the wax as it melts. 
- Create your own homemade spice potpourri. Preheat oven to. Slice an apple and an orange thin and place the slices flat on a baking sheet. Bake the fruit slices for an hour and a half and then take them out of the oven to cool. When cool, mix the slices in a large jar with about 2 tablespoons (28.3 grams) cloves, 3 to 5 cinnamon sticks and about 2 tablespoons (28.3 grams) of star anise. 
- Put the lid on the jar and allow the mixture to settle for 1 day before pouring and displaying in a bowl or decorative jar. 
- Secure cinnamon sticks together for light fragrant beverage coats. Set about 5 or 6 cinnamon sticks. Add a dab of craft glue to the middle of one of the cinnamon sticks and press another stick onto it to secure the two. Repeat this process until all 5 or 6 cinnamon sticks are glued together. 
- To add a little more visual interest to your substrates, weave a piece of colorful string or yarn along with the cinnamon stick beds (like a log barge). This will make your coasters look a little more finished. 
- Tie cinnamon to gifts for an extra personal touch. For an easy way to increase your fall or holiday gifts, use ribbon, yarn or holiday colored string to tie some cinnamon sticks to your wrapped presents. The recipient will surely appreciate your extra effort and pleasant aroma.
- In addition to wrapped gifts, you can tie some cinnamon sticks on soaps, jam jars or cider mix for a light but thought-provoking gift to your friends, neighbors or family members. 
- Make a maternity bag for your wardrobe. Fill a small mesh bag or bag with a cinnamon stick, 1 tablespoon (14.3 grams) of black peppercorns and 1 tablespoon (14.3 grams) of whole cloves. Hang the bag on a hanger in your wardrobe, or place it in a chest of drawers to keep dirt away from your clothes. 
Edit ] Cooking with cinnamon sticks
- Makes a simple homemade cinnamon syrup. Add 4 cinnamon sticks to water in a pot. Turn the oven high to get the water to boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.

Remove the cinnamon sticks from the water and then add 1.5 cups (192 grams) of white sugar. Turn the stove back on low and heat the water for 7 minutes with stirring frequently. Once the sugar has dissolved, allow the syrup to cool before using or storing it in a jar.

- Adding a cinnamon stick to the slow cooker chili will also give a great subtle flavor. 
- Soft cinnamon sticks in rum for a homemade cinnamon essence. Pour light or dark rum into a container with lids. Add two cinnamon sticks to the container before replacing the lid on the container.
