I didn't have any candle rings or bobeches
to match my new red, white and blue summer
all-American decor...so I made some.
These are mini wreaths made with things I had on hand:
wire clothes hanger and a few scraps of ribbon.
Cut the hanger into about 4" pieces and
shape into a circle.
It will give you a circle of about 1"D....
(pi x D) if you're a 'math genius' or
married to one.
Conversation goes like this:
math genius: how big do you want the circle?
me: about this big (holding up a bobeche).
math genius: to get a 1-1/4"D circle I'll
need to cut a 4"piece,
pi=3.1416 x diameter desired.
me: fine (yikes!)
Anyway....back to the fun part.
I cut lots of ribbon onto small pieces.
I just eyeballed it here.
If the ribbon is too wide I cut it in half lengthwise.
Then I just tied them on
until it was nice and full.
Here they are decorating the base of my
candles. Very festive.
This is the counter tray vignette for summer....
