  • Pillar candle, at least 3-inches in diameter

  • Cinnamon sticks

  • Floral shears

  • Hot-glue gun

  • Dish or coaster


  1. Measure candle height; cut cinnamon sticks to size with floral shears. You'll need about 20 lengths per candle.


    Run hot glue along cinnamon stick; affix it vertically to side of candle. (Use low-temperature setting to minimize melting.)


  3. When first stick is dry, glue next stick snugly against it; repeat to cover candle.

  4. Place finished candle on a dish or coaster.
