Crafts for the Home – Cinnamon Stick Candle – Easy Project


This project is a great way to salvage a pillar candle that is a little worn. The cinnamon sticks cover up damage and also give off a nice scent as the candle burns.



  • pillar candle

  • cinnamon sticks

  • glue gun

  • ribbon or twine


Attach cinnamon sticks that are slightly taller than candle using a hot glue gun. Leave an area in the front open in order to apply the rest of sticks in a stairstep manner.


Cut remaining cinnamon sticks in a stairstep manner to fill in the front opening. Finish by tying a ribbon or twine around candle.


About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
