Since I went a bit overboard with the amount of cinnamon I bought for the last Cinnamon Ornaments post I have a couple more cinnamon related projects to show you.
This one is the absolute easiest, no craft skills required at all…..but they make great decorations or decorative gifts.
I had a bag full of large cassia bark as well as the more traditional cinnamon quills, so in the photo you can see that I covered a large candle in the cassia, a smaller one in the cinnamon, and for those who don’t have the right sized candles, a glass votive candle holder which can also be used for tea lights.
The process could not be easier. Find a candle you like to use, put an elastic band around it (not too loose, not too tight), insert cinnamon quills all around, and finally tie with a ribbon or raffia to hide the elastic band. Done!
The same process goes for the glass candle holder. If you are using one of these, look for something that has pretty vertical sides. I tried doing it with sloped sides and it doesn’t really work.
That’s it! Easy as…
Only one more cinnamon project to come, I promise 🙂
