Thanksgiving Or Autumn Themed Candelabra Candle Rings

4 Materials
4 Hours

I decided to make some Thanksgiving/Autumn look candle rings to spice up my candelabras. I used only items I had here at home.

Don’t laugh. I needed something pretty steady for my ring base. I had just emptied a box of Honey Bunches of Oats. So, I cut the box up to use for cutting out the candle rings.

I turned the box part over and used a large mouth canning jar lid for my pattern. I cut out two for the larger center rings. I used a half dollar coin for the center of the rings. I used a Crystal light plastic lid for the remaining 8 smaller rings and the same half dollar coin for the center cut out. You have to make the center cut out large enough so that they don’t scratch the candles.

I painted both sides of my candle ring with acrylic paint I had here at home. The autumn colored leaves were removed from a wreath I had made several years ago. Lots of hot glue was removed the different leaves. You can actually see some remnants on the right leaf. I used two layers of the recycled leaves to cover the green ring. The top layer was smaller recycled leaves. I used recycled leaves on all the candle rings I made.

Here are the two candelabras ready for our Thanksgiving dinner. Used decorative acorns and pine cones on top of the rows of leaves. I will now begin working on candle rings for Christmas.
