How Can You Use DIY Holiday Candle Rings

Think outside the box when using your DIY Holiday Candle Rings. Your Christmas decor will be enhanced beyond the ordinary when you surround it with a festive candle ring.

We typically think of decorative candle rings, as the name indicates, to circle a candle.

Materials for Holiday Candle Rings

All of my supplies were either foraged or found at Dollar Tree. However, these items sell out quickly and may not be available later in the season, so I’ve included links from Amazon for your convenience. Just click on the name of the item.

How To Assemble DIY Candle Ring

Begin by twisting two of the wired garland ties together. Then, form into a three-inch circle and wrap the ends of the ties around the loop. You should have enough length to double the circumference of the ring.

How To Add Berry Garland to the Ring

Cut the length of the berry garland to approx. double the circumference of the ring and wrap it around the wired garland ties, as you see below.

How To Attach to the Grapevine Wreath

I have made several grapevine wreaths from gathering the vine from our property. So next, cut 3 pieces of the berry garland approx. two inches long. You can also use the wired garland ties for this step if you prefer. I wanted more berries to show on the rings.

Just wrap the berry ties around the new ring and the grapevine wreath to secure them together.

Add Pinecones

You can use a variety of items to dress up your DIY Holiday Candle Ring, but I decided to use some mini pinecones that I have picked up from under our pine trees. I had previously used the DIY flocking method to add a touch of snow to the tips. See this easy fake snow tutorial.

Just use a drop of hot glue and easily attach embellishments.
