Ok, so here is the list of all items you need:
- 2 stems of Orchids
- 1 Ranunculus Bush in Rose Pink
- 3 Clear glass Cylinder
- Medium White Crushed Glass Vase Filler
- 3″ Floating White Disc Candle
Clean all your glass cylinders with a damp paper towel.
Add about 2 inches of your crushed glass vase filler carefully to the bottom of your cylinder.
Cut both Orchid stems, leave one stem a little longer – about 10inches.
Bend both Orchids to receive a natural look. This took me a little longer, because I was trying to make it look like I had only one Orchid in the vase. The curve really helps to give it that realistic feel, so play with it until you are satisfied.
Take the vase to its destination, so you don’t have to carry around a vase full of water. Then start filling the cylinder.
Once the vase is full, you add the floating candle.
I also made a few smaller centerpieces, to help the 18inch tall vase find some ground.
All I did was take off the flower heads, and lay them on top of the crushed glass. I didn’t fill this vase with water, because I didn’t have to. This can easily be made with real flowers, just make sure you add water to the vase then.
And for the other small vase, all I did was add the crushed glass, filled it with water (not shown in this picture) and added a floating candle.
Love the simplicity of this tutorial, and the vases+floral can be used in so many different ways.
Candle light dinner, Wedding, Anniversary, baptism table centerpiece, prom night table decor, and I also used my vases in our master bathroom as staging decoration.
