What You Need:

Rose-Wreathed Pillar Candle
Use glass hurricane lamps to protect your candles from outdoor breezes.
  • Floral-foam wreath form
  • Short-stemmed roses
  • Rosebuds
  • Long pearl-head pins

Instructions:

  1. The secret to suspending the wreath of roses on the candle is to use a floral-foam wreath form as the base for the floral arrangement.
  2. Soak the wreath in water; then insert short-stemmed roses, beginning with larger blossoms and filling in the bare spots with rosebuds until the top and outer edges are covered.
  3. Secure the wreath to the candle with long pearl-head pins. You will need to use a lot of pins around the top and bottom because the wreath will be quite heavy.
  4. Fill in around the candle with more rosebuds if needed.
