Step-by-Step Guide to Make a Floating Candle Centrepiece

Transform any occasion with a stunning floating candle centrepiece! Follow this step-by-step guide to create a stunning centrepiece using Candella's Sand Candles, flowers, and a few other materials.

Materials Needed

  • Sand Candles from Candella
  • Glass vessel (clear container or flower vase with a wide opening)
  • Glue gun
  • Your choice of flowers (real or dry)
  • *Optional fillers* (crystals, pearls, etc.)

Step-by-Step Guide

For a detailed visual representation of the process, please watch the video [here]. The video will guide you through each step, demonstrating how to create a stunning floating candle centerpiece with Candella Sand Candles.

1. Choosing the Vessel

Select a clear glass container or flower vase with a wide opening. A wider opening ensures safer burning and a more visually appealing arrangement.

2. Preparing the Flowers

  • Real Flowers: Carefully trim the stems of real flowers to fit the height of your glass vessel.
  • Dry Flowers: If using dry flowers, handle them gently as they are more fragile.

Using a glue gun, attach the flowers to the inside of the glass vessel. This will keep them in place and create a beautiful backdrop for your candles.

3. Adding Fillers

Fillers like crystals or pearls can enhance the beauty of your centrepiece. Place these around the glued flower stems to hide the glue and add a touch of sparkle.

4. Assembling the Centrepiece

  • Water: Begin by filling the glass vessel with water.
  • Sand Candles: Pour Candella's Sand Candles on top of the water. The sand will float, creating a base for the wick.

5. Final Touches

Trim the provided wick from the Sand Candles to ensure they burn perfectly. Make sure the wick is placed at least 1/4 inch from the surface of the sand.

Tips for Using Flowers

- Preventing Floating: Use extra glue at the bottom of the stem for larger flowers to prevent them from floating when pouring water.
- Dry Flowers: Dry flowers can disintegrate in water. Instead, use sturdy leafy greens like eucalyptus to maintain the structure of your arrangement.

Enjoy Your Beautiful Centrepiece!

With these steps, you now have a gorgeous floating candle centrepiece that will wow your guests. Experiment with different flowers and fillers to create a look that’s uniquely yours. Happy creating!
