Candle Ring - finished candle ringThis candle ring is made from disposable aluminum pie pans and a 10 inch wire frame.



  • 6 disposable aluminum pie pans
  • leaf templates
  • card stock
  • pencil
  • small scissors
  • non-working pen
  • utility shears
  • dowel
  • hot glue gun
  • ten inch wire frame
Candle Ring - supplies


  1. If you have a lot of different trees in your yard that have pretty leaves, you can use those for templates to trace around, onto card stock. Choose 4-5 different leaf shapes like maple, holly, oak, and grape leaves. Your leaves should be no larger than 4" across, so that you'll be able to fit 4 templates per pan. 24 leaves will be enough to make a 10" candle ring. Trace around the leaves, then cut them out.
  2. Candle Ring - trace leaves onto cardstock and cut out
  3. Next you will need to carefully cut your pie pans down to measure at least 8" across, so you'll have enough room to place 4 templates per pan. (You can use your dowel to 'iron' out some of the wrinkles from the aluminum later on.)
  4. Candle Ring - cut pie pans down to 8"

  5. Place the templates onto the pan and use your non-working pen to trace around the 4 leaves, then very carefully cut them out with utility shears. Use your dowel to smooth out wrinkles @ this point. (Save your scraps of aluminum to make 'leaf earrings' later on. :-)
  6. Candle Ring - templates arranged on aluminum pan
    Candle Ring - aluminum leaf cut outs
  7. Use your non-working pen to add detail to the leaf now. Try to 'draw' the lines without stopping, going from the stem of the leaf to the very top. Add veins for more detail. Wash and dry all of the leaves.
  8. Candle Ring - veins added to leaf shapes
    Candle Ring - leaves drying after washing

  9. Place the leaves around the frame, then carefully hot glue them, preferably attaching the stems to the frame. The leaves will look much better that way. I also turned the candle ring over and hot glued the leaves to make the candle ring more secure. (If you choose to make an outdoor wreath instead of a candle ring, I would definitely use E-6000 or a glue that is more permanent instead of hot glue.)
  10. Candle Ring - begin glueing leaves to ring
