DIY Cinnamon Candle Holder

The other day, my daughter made me go to Carpe Diem online. A handy site that lets people know how many years they have left to live.  

(I don't suggest you go to that sight.  Just don't. You might get depressed and find yourself in the basement, sitting on the floor, staring into the corner.) 

A week later, and the meds have finally kicked in and I feel a little better, so I seize the day, and go back to the basement like a normal person. 

One of the things I love in my new house ~ my little work bench in my basement.  It's all messy and a little "old man-ish", but I still adore it, cuz it's mine.  

Sometimes I go down there just to look at it.  Today I looking at my workbench, and saw a couple of things: that raffia, and a bag of cinnamon sticks. 

So then, I scoured my house for a for a little candle holder.  And I found this. Perfect. 

A little hot glue and I made this.
