Candle jars are the best mini flower vases that bring a little more life to your dining table, credenza or side tables! The key here is using a variety of small flowers like baby’s breath, feverfew daisies, carnations and mini roses. Your local grocery store should have a good selection of small flowers to choose from, mostly under $5!
Before you begin, be sure to properly clean it out in a few easy steps. Check out this blog post: How to Clean Your Candle Jar
- Trim stems to your desired height, discarding of any leaves to avoid rot.
- Fill the candle jar ¾ with water.
- Arrange your mini bouquets: start with larger flowers like roses or carnations and fill in spaces with leaves, eucalyptus, baby's breath, feverfew daisies, etc.
We recommend changing the water every few days to keep your flowers fresh or preserve your bouquet by wrapping the stems in twine and hanging upside down until dried!
