Fresh Floating Candles

Fresh from the garden -- or the grocer's shelves -- fruits and flowers add a refreshing touch to floating candles.

What You Need:

Match the color of the candle to your chosen fruit or flowers.
  • Glass container or vase
  • Fresh fruit or flowers
  • Water
  • Floating candle


1. Fill the glass container approximately halfway with desired fruit or fresh flower heads. If using lemons or limes, slice them before placing into the container.

2. Carefully fill the container with water, leaving about 2 inches at the top. Place a floating candle on top of the water.


  • For a child's birthday party, fill glass container with marbles or small plastic toys.
  • For extra sparkle, sprinkle the water with glitter before adding the candle.
