- Candle Holder
- Foam Ball or Block
- Ribbon (optional)
- Hot Glue
- Wire Cutters (optional)
Time needed: 30 minutes
- Step One:
I looked for a foam ball and could not find one; however, I did find a foam block. I was looking for a round appearance for my flower bouquet, so I decided to shave off the corners on my block. For this I used a kitchen knife. After my block was shaved down to give it a more circular look I moved onto step two.
- Step Two:
When cutting the flowers off the stems I found using wire cutters to do this is a lot easier than scissors. I cut the flowers off the stems and left about 1 inch of the stem on the flower. This allowed me to push my flower into the foam.
- Step Three:
After all my flowers were cut off the stems I used a small amount of hot glue to apply on the end of the stem and then pushed the stem into the foam. The hot glue helps to secure the flowers to the foam to prevent them from falling out over time. You will want to apply the flowers close together on your foam. Leave a space at the bottom of the bouquet to glue your candle holder to the foam.
- Step Four:
Apply hot glue to the rim of the candle holder and then apply the candle holder to your foam. To make sure it was secured to the foam I went around it again with my hot glue to give it extra protection.
- Step Five:
After your candle holder is secured tightly onto the foam apply the remaining amount of flowers to the bottom of the foam to give the bouquet a more fuller appearance.
- Step Six:
This step is optional. I used ribbon to tie around the candle holder, but so many different options can be used in this step. It all depends on your taste and style. So get creative with this step, no one particular way is the right way.
