DIY Cinnamon Stick Candle Decor
By Linsey Rickett
Delight your senses this season with a handmade cinnamon stick candle holder. It’s a lovely way to dress up an inexpensive candle and create a warm, inviting atmosphere. It also makes a nice gift to give for the holidays or anytime of the year. And with AdTech Precision Pro Glue Gun and Apple Cinnamon Scented Glue Sticks, it’s easy as 1-2-3!
Step 2. Using Glue Gun and Apple Cinnamon Scented Glue Stick, begin to glue cinnamon sticks to white cardstock strip and continue all the way around candle. This can be done by either adding hot glue to the white strip or directly onto the back of each cinnamon stick.
Step 3. Once all cinnamon sticks are securely glued around the candle, wrap a piece of hemp twine around the candle holder and tie into place.
Step it Up Ideas: to make a lovely holiday gift, decorate front of candle holder with a faux holly or pine sprig, berries, jingle bells or add a gift tag and festive ribbon.
