Make vintage bottle labels

Attach pretty, vintage labels to your bottles. Although they’re faux vintage, you’ll be amazed at how realistic these labels will look. All you need is some leftover coffee, cinnamon, and plain cardstock. Quickly dip your cardstock in coffee, and then lay it out to dry. You can dribble extra coffee on it to add darker spots if you’d like. Next, sprinkle cinnamon onto the cardstock, and let it dry thoroughly. Once it's dry, cut out each label and attach them to the bottles using tape or a piece of jute string. You’ll love the final results. Get tutorial here

Create a vintage leather look

If you like the look of vintage leather but don’t want to pay the high costs of a store-bought decor piece, you could make your own faux leather decor for nearly free. Coat a paper mailer in light brown paint. Add a stencil of your choice, and then paint Mod Podge onto the mailer. While it’s still wet, sprinkle cinnamon on top of the whole thing, and pour more Mod Podge over the cinnamon, rubbing it in. Let the bag dry, and then coat it with a top coat as a final sealer. Punch wire hangers into your creation, and fill your faux leather pouch with greenery before hanging it in your home. Get tutorial here

Tinge a rope brown

Cinnamon has a lovely shade of brown, and you could color your rope with it. Lightly separate the strands of the rope, and brush it with white glue or Mod Podge. Dip it into a bowl of cinnamon and roll it around. Once it’s covered, shake off the excess powder. Then, add your brown-tinged rope to any project you’ve created for a fun, natural color addition.

Stain book pages

Recreate old, stained book pages that could be used for crafts and displays. Take a newer book and make its pages look rugged and antiqued with tea.

You can use the dry, stained pages however you’d like to create pretty decor for your home. Get tutorial here

Rust a flower planter

Display your faux flowers in style with this hack. Add a rusty, farmhouse vibe to your flower planter using cinnamon. Take a tin can and paint it, adding black detail and a little patina to make it look old. Once the paint has dried, apply Mod Podge to the areas with the patina, and sprinkle cinnamon on top of it. It’ll look just like rust once it’s dry. Add a cute label with a frayed burlap backing for the final touch. Arrange beautiful flowers in your new holder, and place it in the center of your table to brighten up your home. Get tutorial here

Bake cinnamon ornaments

Adorn your home with cute, yummy-smelling cinnamon treats. Mix together applesauce, glue, and cinnamon to create a kneadable dough. Roll it into a ball, and then sprinkle your work surface with cinnamon before flattening the dough on top of it. Use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes, and then place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Poke a hole at the top of each shape, and then stick them in the oven for two hours. Once they’re cool, poke a string through them to create cute ornaments or a fun garland to decorate your home with festive spirit. Get tutorial here

Make farmhouse-style art

If you’re a fan of the farmhouse look, you’re going to love this idea. Take a pallet board and make it look like a farmhouse painting using cinnamon. Paint your board before applying a Cricut stencil to it, and then paint over the whole thing. Sprinkle a light dusting of cinnamon on the board while it’s still wet, and then brush the cinnamon into the wet paint. Once it's dry, sand the entire piece to get the distressed look you’re going for. The cinnamon will leave a lovely brownish tinge on the board, and the final results will look beautifully rustic hanging on your wall. Get tutorial here
