If you are looking for a quick and easy autumn decoration that looks absolutely stunning then this is the craft for you. It requires very few materials and only takes 10 minutes to put together.
- Coloured candle
- Cinnamon sticks
- Ribbon, burlap, raffia, string or yarn
- Hot glue gun
- Elastic band
Start by figuring out how many cinnamon sticks you will need. To do this you can put an elastic band onto the candle and then sliding the sticks inside until they completely surround the candle.
Next, you will want to either glue the cinnamon sticks onto a length of ribbon or tie them together with string. If you try gluing them directly to the candle they wont stick very well.
Once all the sticks are tightly tied together you can then wrap it around the candle and tie both ends together. I used the elastic band again to stabilize everything while I repositioned the sticks until I was happy with the way it looked.
You can then tie a burlap ribbon onto your candle to hide the sting and add some extra detail. You could go even further and embellish with glitter, rhinestones, bows and leaves.
While burning this candle the fragrance of cinnamon will fill the room but always remember to never leave a candle unattended. While the cinnamon should not catch on fire its always better to be safe than sorry.
