DIY Homemade Christmas Loaf


DIY Holiday Loaf GiftI love to bake, so I love sharing baked goods around the holidays. Sugar and gingerbread cookies are a must, but I love including a Christmas loaf and of course adding some festive packaging. I usually buy a set of 6 mini decorative loaf pans and one recipe usually fits the bill to fill each one. Search Pinterest or Google to choose your family & friends’ favorites, cinnamon is usually a safe bet. I found a recipe for Cinnamon Bread on Julie Blanner’s blog and her adorable packaging inspired mine, as well!

I bought some cinnamon sticks a while ago, which served as unique decor. I always keep a spool of twine on hand, it never fails with pretty packaging.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
