Are you in full on holiday mode yet? Last month I shared this adorable DIY Christmas Countdown Sign and that was just the beginning of our Christmas crafting! Since then we’ve been creating a ton of Christmas treats and a little more crafting like today’s easy Christmas craft – a Cinnamon Stick Holiday Candle!
Now you’ve likely seen a candle similar to this on Pinterest before – but what I haven’t seen are any good how-to’s! And that’s what we’re bringing you today. Because believe it or not, this adorable little craft is crazy easy! Remember – that’s my motto! We’re all busy and when it comes to crafts and holiday decor we need the cutest projects we can create in the least amount of time. And this is certainly one of those. So let’s get down to it…
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Plain candle
- Cinnamon sticks
- Fast grab tacky glue
- Decorative ribbon
- Hand saw (opt)
And the steps:
- If you need to cut down your cinnamon sticks, use a hand saw to cut them to the appropriate size. For our craft, we cut sticks we found at our local craft store in half. You want to make sure the sticks are well below the rim of your candle for safety reasons.
- Then simply cover your plain glass candle with fast grab tacky glue and add your cinnamon sticks to the side until the entire candle is covered.
- Once the glue is dry, tie your candle with decorative ribbon – or you could even tie while still a little wet to help your cinnamon sticks set in place.
And voila! Once dry you have the most beautiful and festive Cinnamon Stick Holiday Candle! And I just love how it turned out. Everytime I light the candle, I just can’t help but smile. It’s Christmas in a candle folks – and so easy to make!
