How to Make a Vegetable Candle Arrangement

Here’s a short 1 minute video showing how to make a pretty vegetable candle arrangement. These can serve as a beautiful display on their own or as a centerpiece for a vegetable tray.

This idea is great for entertaining during the holidays. Depending on the colors and the arrangement, you can use vegetable candles for Christmas or Hanukkah. These carved vegetable candle arrangements can also be used year ’round for birthdays or any other special occasion.


If you are making a Menorah for Hanukkah, make sure to use 9 candles rather than 7 as show in this video.

vegetable candle arrangement for Christmas

For a festive Christmas look, you can feature red and green vegetables with white candles. For visual appeal you can use three different height vegetable platforms in your vegetable candle arrangement. In this photo, I used daikon. You can get daikon at most Asian markets as well as at many supermarkets.

Here are the written instructions on how to make a vegetable candle arrangement

  1. Make some vegetable twirls using the Twisty Twirl tool. You can use root vegetables like beets, carrots, turnips, diakon, jicama, or sweet potatoes. I’ll be using daikon.
  2. Once you’ve make your vegetable twirls, Place some cut potatoes on a platter
    to form the base. 
  3. Insert toothpicks into the bottom of the vegetable twirls. Then you can stick
    them into the potato base.
  4. But first, add some curly kale or lettuce to hide the potatoes.
  5. Now you can stick the candles into the potato base. If you are making
    a menorah to celebrate Hanukkah, make sure to use 9 candles.
  6. Add ordinary birthday candles. And you have a finished vegetable
    candle arrangement. It’s that simple.
