Candles Around the Pool . . .
Placing candles around a pool needs a finishing touch. Add a candle ring of Baby’s Breath!
Candle rings of Baby’s Breath are made similar to Halos, only smaller. Measure the length of wire by wrapping it lightly around the candle. Cut the wire and wrap it with the floral wrap tape. Set aside.
Take a stem of Baby’ Breath. Pinch or cut a cluster of blooms from the stem. Bunch the cluster to form one bunch. Beginning just below the blooms, wrap the floral wrap tape to the bottom of the stem of the cluster. Cut the bottom of the cluster to insure that the stem is smooth.
Take the piece of wire and place a single cluster of the wrapped stem at the top of the wire. Wrap another piece of floral wrap tape around the stem adhering it to the wire. Place another cluster of blooms about ½” below the previous cluster and continue to wrap the wire with floral wrap tape. Continue this process until the Baby’s Breath clusters cover the wire except for 1”.
Create the candle ring by taking the end of the wire, not covered by blooms, and connecting it to the top of the wire. Guide the wire over the wire that is covered with blooms. Pinch the ends of the floral wrapped wire tightly together. Clear a space from the blooms to allow you to wrap a small piece of floral wrap tape around the wires to secure them.
After the candle ring is finished. Slip the candle ring over the top of the candle and allow it to rest at the bottom of the candle.
