This candle mold (or is it a sugar mold?) is one of my favorite things, and I look for any opportunity to use it. Thanks to my friend Lynne, there is new inspiration.
This was her centerpiece at a recent dinner. For me, it was instant love, and I couldn’t resist deconstructing to see how it was done.
In addition to the mold, here’s what is needed: a candle holder and candle, florist’s foam, burlap, scissors and flowers.
Step 1: Cut a small piece of the foam and stuff it into a candle holder. Wet it thoroughly and place the candle in the middle.
Step 2: Cut flowers of your choice to a short length and insert them into the saturated foam, covering the entire surface.
Step 3: Cut burlap strips and work them among the candle/holders.
Step 4: Stand back and admire your handiwork.
From start to finish, this centerpiece is a simple one, but the effect is dramatic, magical and can be adapted to suit many occasions. Isn’t this just the kind of project we all like?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

Love your centerpieces Lulu – you have a great sense of creativity that always plays out beautifully.
What a clever idea!!
Beautiful….I love how you encircled the candles with the flowers. A single candle with the flowers would certainly make a great place card too!…Wonderful and gorgeous idea!!
Great job at getting the most out of that lovely simple piece!
What a great way to use a piece I loved back when we bought them, but I haven’t pulled it out for years. My next ‘tablescape’ will definitely use this idea!
Beautiful and clever!
