Church Wedding Flowers

Easy Heart Candelabra Tutorial

Creating beautiful church wedding flowers is easier than you think.  It's just a matter of being able to buy the correct floral supply products and bulk flowers and greenery.

Here is a list of the supplies you'll need for ONE candelabra:

These hearts come in packs of two, which is perfect for use on a single wedding candelabra.  Don't worry if the foam gets a little dented or gouged by your delivery man - it's still usable and doesn't affect the design in any way.

For designs that are totally flowers, I generally recommend soaking in water that has been treated with fresh flower food.  But this design is primarily greenery, so just soak it in plain water and we'll later seal the finished project with a plant polish.

Lay the foam side down in your container of water.  Do not push under the surface.  Instead, allow the foam to draw up water while floating. 

This assures that there will not be any dry pockets of foam in the design, which could lead to flowers or greenery wilting quickly.

It only takes a couple of minutes for the foam to become completely saturated.  Usually you'll know when a brick sinks to the bottom. 

However, this heart has a plastic back, it may continue to float.  Simply wait for the bubbles to stop popping to the surface.
