We have this fabulous DIY video with several products to create a blue paradise just for you!Joel Kirby, with Curly Willow Designs, walks us through the color blue! Joel loves the color blue and feels it’s underused except for in Weddings! Blue can be clean, crisp, and sophisticated per Joel!In this video, learn how to create a blue masterpiece in a few short steps!

What you will need:

  • Cylinder Vase – you can choose the height depending on where it will be used.

Blue Floating Candles

Step 1:Grab your cylinder vase

Step 2:Place your blue flat gems into the bottom of the cylinder vase to your desired level.

Step 3:Take your curly willow branch and work with it a bit to get it in a twisted state and slide down into the cylinder vase. Once all is down into the vase, add a few gems on the top of the branch to create intrigue. Make sure there is room at the top to still have your candle floating.

Step 4:Pour water over the gems and the curly willow branch. Make sure to not fill to full so your floating candle flame will fall below the lip of the top of the vase.

Step 5:Take your floating candle, and holding by the wick, gently place in the water making sure the wick does not get wet. Grab a match or lighter and light the candles.Now I call this a beautiful addition to any table! From the curly willow branch to the rich blue gems at the bottom and at the top in the twisted branches, the intrigue of the inside of the vase has full attention!
