These are new to me but let me tell you.... they are adorable!  

And they smell great too! 

Like cinnamon!

The pods I bought are died orange and look exactly like little pumpkins. 

I've also seen them in yellow, red and green for fall decorating.

I added a photo of a black crow and the pods to this mason jar and it makes a great Halloween photo display!

There are a zillion decorating ideas for these little cuties!

How about adding them to a wreath or stringing them like cranberries for garland?
