Simple Floating Candle Arrangement Wire Technique

Last Updated on July 22, 2022

Have trouble keeping your flowers in place when you add water to your vase? The fix is simple. Watch and see.

If you have ever made a floating candle arrangement with submerged flowers, you know how tricky it can be to keep your flowers properly positioned in the vase. They usually float to the top.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn a simple wire technique that will help keep your flowers where you want them in your arrangement.

I think you’ll truly enjoy the tips shared in this video.

That’s why I felt it was worth sharing with DIYers like you. Check it out, I think you’ll agree.

I really hope you enjoyed that… and are super excited about giving this a try. It’s really pretty foolproof, even if you’re a novice.

And by the way, the flowers and supplies used in this bouquet, including the cymbidium orchids, can all be purchased online.

Where To Buy Flowers Online

You can find them at sites like BloomsbytheBox, GlobalRose and Flower Explosion. These three are the ones that I’ve personally experienced.

There are others that look pretty good as well, like WholeBlossoms and BunchesDirect, but I can honestly say I have no personal experience with them.

Other Flowers You Can Use

Not only can you use other orchid varieties, but you can also use flowers such as roses, calla lilies, gerbera daisies, and carnations. It depends on your preferences and budget.

Here’s an arrangement we did using this technique with roses

If you are just making an arrangement or two and only just need a handful of high-quality flowers, I usually suggest purchasing them from a local florist. Always my first choice!

As far as the supplies go, cylinder vases and can be found almost everywhere. Amazon, eBay both have an assortment of sizes and styles.

One of the most popular places to find them is Dollar Tree, and you certainly can’t beat the price.

Florist-quality cylinder vases (in sets of 3), as well as the floating candles can be found online at Koyal Wholesale. The best selection of aluminum floral wire can be found on Amazon.

One other thing I like about the materials used is that they can all be reused, except the flowers of course. 🙁

With that out of the way, let me tell you a little about myself.

My name is Greg Johnson and I’m the owner of this site. You can find more about me here. The short version can be found at the end of this post.

Sharing awesome flower arranging tutorials is probably the biggest reason for me having created this ever-growing resource.

Honestly. That’s why I’m here with you right now.

Listen, to start on the right foot, I’ve gotta level with you. Truthfully, my own selfish needs are really what led to the creation of this site.

I check out a lot of flower design tutorials (like the floating candle arrangement video you just got finished watching), and a cool site on which I could re-watch my favorite videos is really what I was after.

Of course, I do see this as something of an opportunity, as well. Why not just be honest, right?

I love sharing great content, and I also enjoy earning sponsorship revenues and affiliate commissions. Hopefully, you don’t see anything wrong with that.

As you can probably see, I’m not one to pull punches. That being the case… selling you stuff isn’t my goal here.

If anything from any of my sponsors interests you, that’s fantastic! But if that’s not the case, no problem. I’m just glad that you’re here.

Income or not, I just wanna share useful floral tutorials with good people like you!

And that’s what FlowersFloralFlorist is. It’s basically just an “all under one roof” video resource for both myself and others who are interested in floral design ideas. Sound good? Great! It’d be great to have you over again some time.

So keep in touch! I’ll simply be sharing more useful videos which cover various subjects including flowers, plants, and weddings… among others.
