Every day for the 12 days leading up to Yule, we will be posting some ideas for crafts, spells and other witchy things to do in this festive season. We would love for you to join in and post your photos in the comments on our Facebook groups.
If you have some plain white candles, and cinnamon sticks, this is a simple way to add festive cheer and aroma to your home.
You will also need -
Cut the cinnamon sticks making sure they’re roughly the same height as the candle, or different lengths for a more rustic look.
Place an elastic band around the candle and then place the cinnamon sticks into the gap between the candle and the band. You need to fill the whole way around with cinnamon sticks. Lift the candle up and if any cinnamon sticks fall out, because they are loose, you need to put a few more sticks into the elastic band.
When the whole of the candle is covered by the cinnamon sticks, place the twine, or ribbon, around the outside. Cut the twine so that it is quite a bit longer than the circumference of the candle, then knot it with a bow.
