What you needWooden place mat
Hot Glue Gun
Using a wooden place mat or a old wooden chopping board you can make this lovely sweet scented trivet or pot mat for your kitchen table.
Start by using the glue gun to glue one stick at a time down onto the board. Start from one side and work your way across. You may need to cut your sticks or arrange them into a suitable pattern to cover the board.
As you glue each stick down sprinkle the ground cinnamon onto the wet hot melt glue that is exposed.
This will help cover up the shiny glue and also help create the lovely aroma later.
Place the sticks firmly against each other securing with glue down each side if required.
