I couldn’t resist linking up to Kate’s craft party so this afternoon I quickly made a centerpiece for the dining room table. This is such an easy craft that you’ll be able to do this project in less than twenty minutes!
All you need are cinnamon sticks, candles, a rubber band, and some ribbon/twine. (Note: I found inexpensive cinnamon sticks at Ollie’s.)
Place your rubber band around your candle and then place your sticks under the rubber band. To add interest, I varied the height and also varied whether the line on the cinnamon sticks faced outwards or toward the candle.
Once the entire candle is covered in sticks, wrap twine or ribbon around the rubber band in order to conceal it. Accessorize however you want and you’re done!
Here you can see the entire casual fall tablescape. My boys were thrilled to come home and find the “big table” all set and ready for some fall food tonight.
I placed a little fun pumpkin on each setting with a hand stamped leaf that I had created for a different project last fall. Gotta love it when you can repurpose your crafts!
These candles will transition beautifully into winter with just the addition of some holly berries. Happy candle accessorizing!
