How To Make Cinnamon Stick Candles: 7 Steps

How To Make Cinnamon Stick Candles:

I love setting up décor corners in my house. Sometimes the setting depends on my mood, but more often than not it’s a season based setting. Remember this T&L Bite T.V. video? Winters for me are reminiscent with warm, earthy, homely palettes and scents. Visuals that are enchanting and raw and fragrances that are inviting while bringing back a world of memories, like, the warmth of my grandmother’s hands.

I picked one of these DIY projects from my Pinterest inspiration boards to try for my home and also to share it with you all. Hope you enjoy it and try it for your lovely homes as well. With that said, let’s get started.

You’ll need:

  1. Scented candles. I experimented with raspberry scented candles but vanilla is also a favoured choice.
  2. Rubber bands.
  3. Cinnamon sticks.
  4. A pair of scissors.
  5. Jute thread twine.


  1. Choose the candle height as per your choice. Try to sort out the cinnamon sticks in a way that they match the selected candle height.
  2. Secure a rubber band around the candle.
  3. Start by tucking the cinnamon sticks inside the rubber band. Don’t worry about how the rubber band looks at the moment. We’ll be covering it up. Alternatively, you can also glue them to the candle.
  4. You can cut the cinnamon sticks to match the candle height. However, I kept them uneven for a more real, forestry appeal.
  5. Once done, tap your candle against a flat base, like a table, to straighten the cinnamon sticks and even them at the base. This will also make your candle stand stable and prevent it from wobbling.
  6. Finally, I wrapped a jute twine to cover the rubber band. You can tie a ribbon as well, but I felt a jute thread twine gives it a rustic appeal.
  7. Fasten the twine into a bow. You can place some twigs, leaves or berry branches to beautify your cinnamon sticks candles and make them suit your warm, cozy, fall style home.
