DIY: Cinnamon Stick Coasters

Hi everyone! Brrrr, it’s so cold outside that my fingers are too numb to even type! Lucky for you, I’ve got a neat way to keep warm inside while enjoying a nice cinnamon infused scent in the room! These cinnamon stick coasters make a cute placemat for candles and hot drinks. I’ve even noticed that when the candle wax heats up, a slight cinnamon scent is left trailing in the room. I decided to make my coasters mini sized to go along with my mini candles, but you can easily make these a bigger size to hold larger cups and candles. Also, I’ve got a nice holiday surprise coming up for my readers this week! Hopefully, this rainy and cold weather will lighten up a bit to let me finish my new video, and share with you all the exciting surprise! Wish all my readers a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you all enjoy the craft!
