Winter Candle Rings using Embroidery Hoops and Yarn
I can always find fall and Christmas candle rings but never anything for winter.
I decided to make my own. In order for a candle ring to fit on my existing candle holders, I needed something round and 4 to 5 inches in size.
The only circle form that I could find in this size were embroidery hoops.
I then decided that some thick, fluffy yarn would be pretty wrapped around these hoops.
For my winter decor, I am using the colors white, cream, and rustic brown.
I purchased the hoops and yarn from Hobby Lobby.
The yarn color is eggnog. It is super soft and thick. It reminds me of sweater material.
The only other supply needed for this project was glue. I used Fabri-Tac.
You just glue a section at the top of the hoop and start rolling the yarn around until you have it as full and fluffy as you want it. I love the look of the gold screw on the top of the hoop. I think it adds texture to the project.
Here is the YouTube video of me showing you how I put these together.
Here are more pictures of the completed project.
I made three of these hoops in under an hour.
Here they are on my table with a pretty place mat.
You could also use a candle in a jar with these candle rings too.
Here is another fun option to use with the yarn.
I just took a 2.5 inch Styrofoam ball and wrapped the yarn around it until covered. I love the look of these in a fun bowl, vase, etc.
Here is another fun example of yarn wrapped balls.
I made this winter wreath a couple of years ago using Styrofoam balls and yarn.
You can find the video here if you would like to see how I made this wreath.
Thank you for looking.
I will have some more winter projects coming up soon.
I hope you are inspired to create something fun for your home.
