I find it hard to actually believe that we are well on our way through December and that Christmas is only just over two weeks away. That means that I really need to get going on making my long list of homemade Christmas presents. These cinnamon candle holders were really easy to make and although I must admit that I did expect these to give off a strong cinnamon smell (which they don’t), I love the way they look. If you’re looking for an affordable DIY present for this season, this is a must!

To make a candle holder you need a candle holder, some parcel paper, sellotape, a glue gun, a packet of cinnamon sticks and ribbon to decorate. Tape brown parcel paper tightly to and around the candle holder. Heat your glue gun and glue the cinnamon sticks to the brown paper. As you make your way around think about planning the order of the cinnamon sticks to make sure you don’t end up with a space too small to fill up. When you’ve gone all the way around tie a pretty bow to finish.
