These DIY candle rings are the perfect centerpiece for your holiday table decorations. However, you can mix up the greenery and florals to suit any event.
Years ago I use to attend and sometimes host candle parties. This is when you go to someone's house and the candle salesperson gives you a demo of their products. Then everyone buys one or many pieces and the host receives a discount on the products based on what people order.
It was always a fun girls' night out and everyone loves candles so why not. Anyway, this was also a place where I'd buy candle rings for some of the pillar candles. They made such an easy and beautiful centerpiece for just about any time of year.
So this year I decided to make a few of my own candle rings for our Christmas table using basic florals you might find at any craft store and a few small grapevine rings.

How to Make Candle Rings
If you know me then you know that I love working with grapevine wreaths. In fact, I often make my own grapevine wreaths for our home throughout the year. This time I bought three 6-inch wreaths but you can easily make them.
I also went with greenery stems and leaves, berries, and pine cones from the floral department. As much as I love fresh and natural, I knew that these were going to be hanging out in our heated, dry, home, so natural greens might get a little sad before the big day.
Choose whatever type of greens, berries, or faux florals you like. Cut them into smaller pieces to correspond to the size of the grapevine ring.
Start with one and add a bit of hot glue to the end before inserting it into the grapevine. Go all the way around the wreath adding your greens at somewhat equal distances.
Then build on it by adding berries and in this case a few snowy pine cones. You can make them as full or spare as you like.
Just make sure that you have enough room for your candles to set inside the candle wreath. As you can see, I have plenty of room and could have added much more. However, sometimes it's best to know when to stop. More isn't always more.
I think they look really sweet and will be the perfect Christmas centerpiece for our dining table this year.
