So here is another super easy DIY tutorial ! I’ve made this cinnamon candle before as a Christmas gift to my sister and this week I made one for my own house.

What you’ll need:

– Glue gun

– Candle

– Cinnamon sticks ( about the same height as your candle )

– Ribbon

Step 1

Heat up your glue gun of course ! and when it is hot apply some glue onto a cinnamon stick, make sure you only apply it onto the bottom so that the glue won’t come in touch with the hot wax and fire when you light your candle. ( I don’t know if the glue is flammable but I am not planning on finding out ! )

Step 2

 quickly apply the cinnamon stick onto the candle and press it steady.

Step 3

Wrap a ribbon around it and tie a bow, now you are done!

Here is a link to a great turorial on howto tie a perfect bow:

Now isn’t that cute ! you can use any colour ribbon of course and also change it to match the seasons. Here one with a red ribbon that I made as a Christmas gift.
