It’s not fall without the smell of cinnamon and spice in the air. This season, bring the natural beauty of the season into your home with this easy DIY cinnamon vanilla candle. This candle will not only smell great, but it makes a beautiful decorative piece for your home. As the vanilla candle warms up the cinnamon sticks, your room will be filled with the fall scent of vanilla and spices.
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.
Step 7: Here are your finished cinnamon-vanilla scented candles!
There’s nothing like the smell of warm vanilla and cinnamon to make you feel cosy in the fall and winter season. Not only do these candles smell great, but they also make a beautiful and thoughtful seasonal gift. Make them as a hostess gift for your next holiday gathering or even as a fun craft with with the kids!
