DIY Cinnamon Stick Candle



Cinnamon Stick candles are probably the easiest Christmas craft you will ever do and they take less than 5 minutes to assemble. They make a cute, festive gift for a neighbor or friend and can be mass produced in no time at all.  If you were planning on baking a bunch of goodies to pass out to friends or co-workers and find yourself in a time crunch… this may be a good alternative.

Then again, you may just want to keep one for yourself. They make a great addition to any holiday table. Not overwhelming, but noticeably festive.

Let’s make a cinnamon stick candle!

You will need:

cinnamon sticks

votive candle (any size)

glue gun



I am using a small votive candle… so I broke my cinnamon sticks in half. You won’t need to do this if you use a larger candle.


Simply hot glue the cinnamon sticks to the glass votive.


They don’t have to be perfectly straight… a little wonky-ness  adds character.


Tie on a simple ribbon… or adorn it any way you would like.




Yeah. I am serious. That is it! Pretty easy, huh? You can make 12 of these an hour if you really buckled down. Now don’t say I never helped you out when you were in a time crunch. 😉

Happy Holiday Crafting!
