February 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #33: Make A Lasting Rose Bouquet From Candle Samplers

Tip of the Week

Candle samplers, also known as votives, are usually known as the small candle you pop into a candle holder and burn. With a little creativity, you can give these little beauties a transformation that will make traditional roses look boring. You'll need: • 6 Candle samplers (votives) - preferably all one color and scent • 6 balloon sticks and cups • 6 pieces of white tulle, cut into large squares • Floral tape • Silk leaves from silk flowers Place the cup on the balloon stick and lay the votive on top of the cup. Next, place the square piece of tulle over the votive candle samplers and stick. Twist the tulle tightly below the samplers. With the floral tape, begin wrapping at the base of the cup and all the way down the stick. Make sure to stretch the tape tightly in order to make it sticky. As you go, take a few silk leaves and attach them to the stick with the floral tape for that realistic effect. Finish wrapping the entire stick and you're done. Now you have a bouquet of votive sampler roses that will smell great for months to come and can be “plucked” and burned whenever desired.
