DIY Cinnamon Votive with Floating Candles

So today i wanted to share something with you guys that i have been wanting to make but couldn't because i could NOT find any cinnamon sticks until just the other day that i went to Michael's. They FINALLY had some and on sale!
This project is really simple to make and looks so pretty once your done. Since i love candles, the idea just popped in my head about having some floating candles in there. It was perfect too because my glass votive was bigger than normal. I just loved to see them in their, did i mention that already ;)
Okay so here is the list of things that you'll need:
glass votive
fabric
cinnamon sticks
glue gun, felt, lace and scissors
****************
Now here's a few pictures of the process.

I wrapped fabric around the glass votive first because it looked kinda ugly the way the glue looked from the inside. This way when i'm gluing the cinnamon sticks, the fabric will cover all the glues imperfections :)
Now just start glueing the cinnamon sticks onto the fabric.
And here it is...super easy and super pretty. I added a touch of lace to it because i love the way lace makes things look. Then i just made a few rosettes out of felt and glued them to the middle.
...Simply lovely...
Hope you feel inspired to make your own. If you do i'd love to see it :)
