Cinnamon Candles & Resolutions


I need to get better at documenting crafts as I do them, so many times I finish and then think “No! I have no photos!” leading to one single photo of a finished product. Maybe that can be my New Year’s resolution. So far I have:

1. Give birth and keep child healthy and alive
2. Better document crafts

Seems like that list is shaping up well! Fitness will enter the game at some point…but I digress. This cinnamon candle is so simple to make, and smells so lovely in your home! All you need is a 4″ cinnamon or vanilla scented pillar candle, cinnamon sticks (I buy them in bulk here), hot glue gun, and some sort of base to put your candle on. Pick out some straight cinnamon sticks and apply the hot glue directly to the sticks (fun fact, hot glue will not stick to a candle if applied directly to the candle. I know…it’s obvious AFTER the fact!). Glue the sticks one by one all the way around the candle until voila! Cinnamon stick candle. You can finish it with some cute twine, or stick it on the base of your choosing. I went with my cake stand covered in mini pinecones.

Happy crafting!
