- 6-8 cinnamon sticks
- 1 recycled elastic band
- length of thin wire, approximately 6" long
- 2 nutmegs with a hole drilled through the center of each (use a clamp and fine-bore drill bit)
- length of recycled natural raffia, about 20" long
- eco-friendly adhesive glue
- 1 star anise
- 1 dried orange slice
Secure the cinnamon sticks in a bundle with the elastic band. Thread the wire under the elastic band and secure it tightly in a loop.
Thread a nutmeg onto the raffia, down to one end. Tie a knot in the end of the raffia to secure the nutmeg. Repeat at the other end.
Wrap the raffia around the cinnamon bundle a couple of times so that the elastic band is completely hidden. Secure in a knot.
