Blog Meet Nikki

Hi!!! My name is Nikki and I am the crazy mind behind Everything Under the Moon.  I am so excited to be over here at Blissful and Domestic sharing this simple and fun Christmas craft with you!

A little about me, I am mommy to our beautiful ZeeBee Moon and an aspiring photographer.  I blog about crafts, photography, food, hair, and of course motherhood!  I {super} love what I do and love being able to share it with all of you! :)

For this Christmas craft, I was inspired by a picture I had seen in a home decor magazine. They were spotlighting another Christmas craft and in the background I spotted these candles with sticks encompassing them. I loved them so I decided to give them a try with a little holiday spin!

I started out by purchasing some candles. I went with flameless candles from the dollar store because I wasn't quite sure about lighting candles with flammable glue slathered all over them. Not exactly my idea of a warm Christmas fire. So flameless it is. 

The candles that I got from the $1 store are vanilla scented!

Then I purchased a bag of cinnamon sticks and cut them down to the size of the candle. I tried not to cut them down exactly the same but to have the sizes slightly varying to give it a more rustic look. 

I used spray adhesive to get the candles to stick to the candles. It's not super strong though, so to reinforce it, I hot glued each stick to the one beside it. This made it nice and strong. 

Once this was done I embellished it with a pretty holiday bow, and that's it!

Christmas Cinnamon Stick Candles that when they get all warm, the room start smelling like vanilla and cinnamon.  Mmm~ the smells of the holidays!!
