Cinnamon Candle – What You’ll Need:

Cinnamon Candle – Instructions

Step 1: Take felt and measure circumference of the candle, ensuring you have an inch or two of overlap. Cut a strip that is narrower than the cinnamon sticks so the felt is hidden later on.

Step 2: Lay out the cinnamon sticks on the felt. Find as many straight sticks as you can, then lay them together in your desired set-up.

Step 3: Use the hot glue gun to attach the cinnamon sticks to the felt. Let dry.

Step 4: Wrap the cinnamon stick belt around the candle. Hot glue down the overlap.

Step 5: Wrap and gift! We suggest adding ribbon or twine.
