Cinnamon Stick Candle Holder

Making a cinnamon stick candle holder is one of my favorite crafts to make for fall and winter home decor. I like them because you can leave them out from September through February and they smell so good. Come February, it is all about the love in this house and we switch up the decor.

Materials to make cinnamon stick candle holder:

If using a recycled candle holder, wipe off any residue from the glass.

Don’t stop crafting there! If you have left over cinnamon sticks, get creative and make a wreath or fall centerpiece. I created a fun and unique cinnamon stick wreath.

To make the wreath you will need:

Cut the burlap into 3×6 inch strips. Wrap the wreath with burlap. Apply glue to the inside of the first piece and tuck the edges in. Hold in place for a few seconds allowing the glue to dry.
