Learn how to create this easy to make wreath and candle ring for the holidays.
As the holidays draw near I wanted to create some wreaths and matching candle rings. I have always enjoyed having candle rings for the holidays and wanted to create some of my own designs.
The pinecone wreath and candle ring would make a nice addition to your Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday decor. It features pinecones, pine needles, acorns and orange slices.
The candle ring that I created I made for a 4 inch round candle, you can resize the candle ring to fit the candle you would like to use. To give your candle ring more depth you can take a styrofoam round and cut out the center for the candle and glue the candle ring onto it.
Add some pinecones, acorns and orange slices to your decor this holiday season by making the pinecone wreath and candle ring.

Cutting Out the Pinecone Wreath & Candle Ring
Unzip the download file.
Then open up Design Space and start a new project.
Click Upload and find where you saved the unzipped version of the downloaded files for this project.
Then go into the SVG Folder and select the SVG Files
You can resize the flower by selecting all and changing the size
Then click on the Make It button
The prepare screen will appear
Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the green Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
