Patriotic Candle Ring

Patriotic Candle Ring

When grandchildren come over, I’m always wanting a craft that the kids can help create! This simple Candle Ring is an easy and inexpensive patriotic craft where kids can be involved. The idea is so simple and is easy to vary according to their level. The finished Candle Ring placed on the table certainly gives that patriotic touch to July 4th or Memorial Day!


 8 Wooden Stars (3 in.)

4 stars (2 in.)

Red, White & Blue Paint (spray or acrylic)

Glitter, glitter glue or other decorations of choice

Hot glue gun

These stars are edged with glitter glue…

Painted Wooden Stars



Paint wooden stars and decorate as you wish.

Place stars around a candle or candle holder to determine size of circle. (8 stars go around a pillar sized candle)

Hot glue the stars for the candle ring .

Add white stars or other accents of your choice.

Hint: If using glitter glue, allow to dry overnight!
