Instructions on how to make your own DIY cinnamon vanilla candles
Step 1: Place an elastic band around the bottom of the candle. Slide it up a couple inches and make sure it lays flat with no twists against the candle.
Step 2: Carefully slide in the cinnamon sticks behind the elastic band, one at a time.
Step 3: Fill the cinnamon sticks all the way around your candle until there are no gaps left.
Step 4: Wind your twine around the the candle 5-6 times to cover the elastic band.
Step 5: Once you have covered the elastic, tie off the ends of the twine in a double knot. Then tuck the knot under the other strands of twine to hide it.
Step 6: You can leave it with just the twine if you like, but adding a ribbon is a nice touch to polish off the candle. Simply wrap the ribbon around the candle and over the twine, then tie into a bow.
