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
