Fall craft: Cinnamon candle

I've seen cinnamon sticks wrapped around a candle throughout blogland, and decided it was the perfect accent for a little vignette.
For my version, I chose a vanilla-scented candle, then wrapped a rubber band around it. I stuck cinnamon sticks between the rubber band and candle, then added a festive bow as a final touch.

Super easy, super cheap, and super scented! The candle was .99, the ribbon was a leftover piece from my fall wreath, and the cinnamon sticks came to $3.

Here is the candle on my little tray with a favorite fall picture of one of my boys and a blingy votive holder:

Hope you enjoyed my craft! I will be linking up to the It's Fall Y'all craft linky party!
I'm topsy turvy tuesdays

So cute!! I love the look of cinnamon sticks (I can't smell). The vignette is adorable. :) Visiting from Centsational Girl today. :)

Thank you ladies!!!

Denise, it wasn't a huge rubber band but it was one of the wider ones, I have an irrational fear of rubber bands snapping on my hand :D
