Flower Preparation

Determine the quantity of handcrafted candles or electric candle lamps desired.   Then, refer to the Flower Guide below to  determine the number of flowers we will need for your candle shape and size . 
INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO STREAMING  AT  BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.


NOTE:  Including extra flower heads gives us flexibility in designing your candles.  In addition to the flower heads, please include several stems of greenery per candle.  Flower heads may include all varieties & sizes of roses, gerbera daisies, stargazer lilies, irises, tulips, carnations, etc.  Assorted colors are most popular.  In most cases, flowers (if kept in a cool place and watered) will be suitable for drying, if received in 5-7 days.

NOTE: When the wax is poured over the irregular surfaces of your dried flowers, air bubbles form and will cause holes to form on the exterior of the finished candle.  These will be present and are not a defect, but part of the handcrafted nature of the product.  Some flowers form larger air bubbles than others.
