Wee Memories Challenge #80: Anything Goes

Hello my friends!! Hope you are having a great Saturday. Also time for another fun Wee Memories Challenge, this week our challenge is "Anything Goes" so you don't have an excuse, we want to see your fantastic creations.
This challenge will last for 2 weeks so you can  enjoy your family time.

This time I decorated a candle with cinnamon sticks. This is not my original idea, I found something like this on Pinterest. This project is not difficult to make, but requires some patience and some skills with the heat glue gun (I burned my fingers several times)
I used Craft Cinnamon Sticks, they are different from your regular kitchen sticks, they are a bit less expensive and the smell is a little bit stronger. Just cut them the lenght of your candle, be sure you used a little saw or something like that, these sticks are really hard, I don't recommend to use scissors (like I did), create the patterns you like the most, start applying heat glue and holding them so they don't separate, after you finish all around the candle, add some twine, ribbon or anything you like. I made a medium pillar and 3 small ones (only 1 in the picture). I have them available for sell if any one is interested.

The deadline for this challenge is 11.59pm PST on Friday, December 30,  2011. For more details, some fabulous design team inspiration and to link up your projects, click here
