DIY: Cinnamon Candles

ba-2

Hi my Babiesss!! I decided this year I wanted to make my own cinnamon candle and it was so easy and smells absolutely amazing! One of my favorite scents during Fall and Winter is cinnamon, I would honestly burn it all year long if Neal didn’t oppose it. Please send me your finished product, I love to see how creative you all are!! xoxx

Supplies:

  • Large pillar candle
  • Bundle of large cinnamon sticks
  • Burlap
  • Jute twins
  • Faux berries or other embellishments
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun

Directions:

  1. Put a small dab of hot glue on a cinnamon stick and place on the candle. The hot glue is NOT a permanent adhesive, its just going to hold the cinnamon stick to the candle temporarily so that you can embellish it. once the candle is burning, the hot glue will melt. I recommend using a high temp hot glue gun for this project. but handle with care!
  2. Hot glue the cinnamon sticks to the candle. They will vary in height and width.
  3. 1 package of cinnamon sticks went around my 4″ diameter candle, but depending on your cinnamon sticks and your candle’s diameter, you may need a second bundle.
  4. Cut a strip of burlap to 1.5″ wide by 18″ long and hot glue the burlap in place so that it holds cinnamon sticks together tightly.
  5. To cut burlap straight, pull one strand of burlap all the way out. This will create a line straight across for you to cut along. This gives you a nice straight line and helps prevent some of the shedding.
  6. Have fun embellishing your candle. Add some fun colors or keep it simple.
