  • Stir Sticks in any festive design you can find at your local dollar type store.
  • Pink Floating Candles
  • Water


Pink Floating Candles

Step 1:Grab your cylinder vase

Step 2:Take you stir drink sticks and place how many you want down into your cylinder vase to reach your desired look.

Step 3:Pour water over the swirl sticks Make sure to not fill too full so your floating candle flame will fall below the lip of the top of the vase.

Step 4: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.

A few key elements that Joel talks about in his video are the simple fact that floating candles with an assortment of color options are an easy product to incorporate into any theme or design for parties at your home or even events! Floating candles are a quick, easy, beautiful addition to design! And who doesn’t like that when planning something ~ quick…easy…beautiful?

Watching Joel’s DIY video series will make you want to throw party after party with all the design ideas! This Shake-It-Up idea is so perfect for summertime entertaining inside or out! With adding fun and festive items inside your cylinder vase underneath your floating candle, you have created buzz worthy chatter amongst guests! They will be wondering how you came up with this creative idea! Not only is the design fabulous but you have recreated the whole design look in a short amount of time as well as doing so inexpensively!!! And we call that a win-win!

We also love how the addition of the stir sticks are not only on the inside of the vase to magnify them but are also set about alone in other pieces of glass or cylinders to keep the theme and pop of color alive throughout the whole design of the space!

We encourage you to start planning your next party with this festive design and create your very own AMAZING!
