Candle rings are expensive. I am going to show you exactly how to create your very own unique version without breaking the bank.
I have already shown you how to do this using inexpensive unwired floral garland and floral wire.
For this version you will use a wired floral pick as your base.
Materials For 3 Candle Rings
3 wired Floral Picks ( I used Eucalyptus)
floral wire (24 gauge)
additional floral picks (optional)
3 candle sticks
Steps To Make Candle Rings
- Using wire snips, snip the indvidual pieces off the floral pick trimming as low to the bottom of the pick as possible.
- Cut 6 pieces of floral wire 6 ” long and set to the side within easy reach.
- Using two of the longest pieces of your floral pick, place the ends together.
- Wrap one piece of the wire you just cut down the length of the stem. Do not wrap the wire all in the spot as it will not hold.
- Next, bring the other ends together to form a circle that is roughly the circumference of your candle. You do not need to be exact.
- Attach the ends together using another piece of wire.
- You will now how a circle.
- Attach another floral pick to your circle with wire.
- Repeat the process of attaching additional floral picks anywhere you see a bare spot on the ring.
- Don’t worry that all the florals are sticking out everywhere.
- Once you have all of the floral picks attached,begin wrapping the florals over and under the circle.
- This will fill in the gaps and create your full candle ring.
- If you lose some of the leaves as you are wrapping, it is okay.
- If you see any bare spots, feel free to add additional pieces of the floral pick to fill in where necessary.
- Place the candle ring on your candle to check that is fits.
- Adjust as necessary.

Tips for Candle Rings
- If the wires want to become loose as you wrap the floral stems around the circle, use hot glue on the wire to secure the wire to the stems. Allove the glue to cool completely before you strart wrapping again.
- If your candle ring wants to slide down the candle stick instead of staying in place, using both hands, gently press the candle ring into the candle to get a snug fit. The wire stems should allow you to form the candle ring to the candle.
- If you want to add color/dimension to the rings, snip off these pieces from the florals you choose. Place them in the candle ring and secure them with hot glue using your glue gun.
- I used these yellow pieces and a different type of eucalyptus pick for these floral candle rings in the photo below.
How easy was that? You now have three candle rings you can use to decorate your home for fall.
In fact, you can do this DIY for any season, including weddings.
The sky is the limit, so let your creativity shine.
