Create your own floral candleholder for Christmas with Bostik Fix & Flash glue.
What you will need
- Five wooden pieces; three lengths of 44.5cm X 7.5cm and two lengths of 9.4cm X 7.5cm
- Dried flowers
- Copper tube of the same diameter as the candles
- Floral foam
- Sanding paper
- A pair of scissors
- A paper cutter
- Bostik Fix & Flash glue
Step 1 : Sanding
Sand the wooden plates gently.
Step 2 : Cutting
Cut the copper tube with a tube cutter or hand saw to create three 7 cm high pieces that will serve as a candle holder. Sand the ends of the tubes to remove any residue.
Step 3 : Glue
Glue these tubes onto one of the long wooden plates, spacing them about 5cm apart.
Step 4 : Combine
Then combine the 5 wooden plates to create a rectangular tray that will contain the dried flowers. To do this, glue each part together with Bostik Fix & Flash glue.
Step 5 : Cut the floral foam
Once everything is set, cut the floral foam with a paper cutter. Line the bottom of the wooden rectangle, taking care to accomodate the copper tubes.
Step 6 : Plant the flowers
Plant the dried flowers into the foam. Insert the candles into the copper tubes to finish, and set up the festive table.
Attention, be sure to choose dried flowers that are fireproof, or non-inflammable for safety reasons. Some dry flowers are covered with product to protect against a possible start of fire.
