Looking for an colorful Thanksgiving table decor idea? These DIY Cinnamon Holiday Candles are easy to make and great as Thanksgiving place settings.
DIY CINNAMON HOLIDAY CANDLES
With the holidays coming in hot, I am so excited to be sharing a number of fun and easy Thanksgiving table decor ideas with you over the next couple of weeks.
I started with this fun DIY Cinnamon Stick Holiday Candle because they are easy to make. They can be coordinated to any color scheme you are decorating your thanksgiving table and they smell unbelievable and make your house have all the scents of Fall.
Supplies used to make these Holiday Candles
Once you’re ready to start the project. Lay out a piece of your wax paper, grab a small container and fill it with white paint. If your paint container has a large lid, then I would dip the cinnamon stick right in the paint container. Otherwise, a small container is great.
From there, let the paint dry and then there are two different approaches to the second color.
- You can dip the bottom half of the stick in the color the same way you did the white and then let it dry.
- You can attach the cinnamon sticks to the votive candles and then dip the entire holiday candle in the color.
I chose the second option as I was eager to put them together.
For those of you that love the monochromatic look, then you will love the simple white. I am addicted to color, so there is no way I wasn’t going to have a color on the bottom.
The trick if you are going to dip the bottom of the entire candle in the color, is to let them dry on the wax paper with the color side down. If you try and flip them upside down then you will have dripping color and the cinnamon sticks might not hold the weight of the votive.
The last step of adding the ribbon is optional. I actually enjoy the rustic feel of the DIY Candle Holders without the ribbon, but the ribbon does finish off the Thanksgiving place setting nicely too. If you are handing the votives out as favors for Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving then I would add the ribbon. Otherwise, its up to you and what you want your Thanksgiving place settings to look like.
