Cinnamon-Vanilla Candles



Scented candles are an easy way to give your home an aromatic ambiance makeover, but when wicks fail or wax melts unevenly, they are also an easy way to drain your bank account.  This article will teach you how to save by teaching you how to make Cinnamon-Vanilla candles by yourself and be the true DIY champion. This candle will not only smell great but it makes a beautiful decorative element for your home. As the vanilla candle warms up the cinnamon sticks, your room will be filled with the fall scent of vanilla and spices. Here’s how you can make your own Cinnamon-Vanilla candles:

Materials and tools:

  • Vanilla candles
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Thick elastic bands
  • Twine
  • Ribbon


Step 1: Place an elastic band around the bottom of the candle. Slide it up a couple inches and make sure it lays flat with no twists against the candle.


Step 2: Carefully slide in the cinnamon sticks behind the elastic band, one at a time.


Step 3: Fill the cinnamon sticks all the way around your candle until there are no gaps left.

Step 4:  Wind your twine around the candle 5-6 times to cover the elastic band.


Step 5: Once you have covered the elastic, tie off the ends of the twine in a double knot. Then tuck the knot under the other strands of twine to hide it.


Step 6: You can leave it with just the twine if you like, but adding a ribbon is a nice touch to polish off the candle. Simply wrap the ribbon around the candle and over the twine, then tie into a bow.


Step 7: Light them up and you’re done!
