How to Make Floral Candle Rings


Floral candle rings are often used to decorate for special occasions and events, such as weddings, anniversary parties or the holidays. Buying store-bought rings can cost a pretty penny though, and they may not be available in the color and style of flowers that you want, so making them at home is a good alternative. Since these floral candle rings require very few supplies and craft know-how, they can be put together for only pennies with relative ease.

Things You'll Need

  • Floral wire
  • Green floral tape
  • Dried flowers
  • Hot glue
  • Silk leaves
  • Dried baby's breath
  • Small plate
  • Pillar candle
  • Cut a piece of floral wire, 18 to 22 gauge, to a length that is twice the size of the candle's diameter. Form the wire into a circle and twist the ends together to secure it.

  • Wrap the wire with green floral tape, covering it completely. Wrap the tape around two to three times, creating a thick layer over the wire. This forms the base for the floral candle ring.

  • Select dried rose buds, daisies or any other type of small dried flower. Cut the stem so it is flush with the underside of the flower head.

  • Hot glue the flower heads over the floral tape, covering it completely. Add some leaves, dried baby's breath, or other greenery in between the flowers if desired. Let it dry.

  • Set the floral candle ring on a small plate or even a plastic lid no larger than the ring. This is used to catch any wax that may drip when the candle is lit. Insert a pillar candle in the middle of the ring. Repeat steps 1 through 5 to make as many floral candle rings as needed.
