The Easiest Holiday DIY: Cinnamon Stick Candles

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m big on candles. I always have one burning in the kitchen or on my desk while I’m working at home. They’re so comforting and make a room feel very cozy, and I love trying out new scents. To me, cinnamon is one of those scents that really evoke feelings of holiday nostalgia, and I wanted to make something chic and unique for a Christmas centerpiece featuring it.

These easy cinnamon stick candles are a fun DIY that up looking more expensive and difficult than they actually are – you’ll feel like a bonafide Martha Stewart when you tell guests that you made them yourself. I made these with plain candles, as I thought any other scents might compete with the cinnamon. These are perfect for burning anytime you want the smell of cinnamon in your house, or on the table during a dinner party.

Supplies:
Plain white candles
Cinnamon sticks
Floral shears
Scissors
Ruler or measuring tape
Elastic bands
Burlap ribbon
Twine

Step 1:
Measure the height of your candles using a ruler or measuring tape. Cut the cinnamon sticks into different lengths using your floral shears, making sure they’re roughly the same height as the candle. It can be a bit messy, so I recommend doing this over a trash can. I liked cutting mine different lengths for a more rustic look, but you can cut them all to the same length if you prefer.

Step 2:
Place an elastic band around the candle and then place the cinnamon sticks into the gap between the candle and the band. You need to fill the whole way around with cinnamon sticks. Lift the candle up and if any cinnamon sticks fall out, because they are loose, you need to put a few more sticks into the elastic band.

Step 3:
When the whole of the candle is covered by the cinnamon sticks, it’s time to place the twine, or ribbon, around the outside. Cut the twine so that it is quite a bit longer than the circumference of the candle, then knot it with a bow. You can always cut off excess, so it’s better to start with longer segments. If you like, you can secure everything with a hot glue gun as an optional final touch.

I wanted to thank you ALL for such kind messages and questions about Honor earlier this week. She had a bad fall, unfortunately on her face, and damaged her tooth, with lots of swelling and bruising. I was over an hour away, and will never forget the sick feeling in my stomach driving back in the dark. However, she is a brave little girl, and has been a star throughout, barely complaining even when I brush her teeth. She is doing so much better each day and as you can see, hasn’t lost her sense of humour 💕
