Materials I used for this project:  Cinnamon sticks, Candle, Glue gun  

Next you need a candle – I’m using a jar candle from Dollar Tree but you could do this on a candle holder, or right onto a pillar candle itself.

You have some options when it comes to gluing. I used a hot glue gun.  The cinnamon stick will stick to the glass, and if you are using disposable candles like me you will be able to pull the sticks off to reuse again.  You could also adhere the cinnamon sticks around a recycled jar and place a tealight or battery operated tealight inside. If you are gluing it to a glass candle holder (not disposable) or pillar you might opt for a more permanent glue.

Get your cinnamon sticks out and ready. If they are too long you can try breaking or cutting them.

Put hot glue on the cinnamon stick.

Put the cinnamon stick on the candle.

Continue gluing and adding the cinnamon sticks all the way around the glass.

That is it, you’re done. Now you have a simple, inexpensive, holiday decoration, party favor, or gift.

I hope you’ll make some too, and if you do – I’d love to see pictures.

    1. Thanks Donna, you are so right. I love gifts the kids can help make and give to people. 🙂

  2. I love this idea, so pretty! Does the warmth of the candle help the cinnamon sticks release their aroma? It would be a great added bonus if it did! 🙂

    1. Thank you Loni. I believe it does release some of the cinnamon scent, but not quite as much as if you put them in a crock pot with water and simmer.

  3. Simple and sweet, what a lovely idea. These would be great when you need quite a few little gifts for a group as they are inexpensive and quick. love it!
