Gorgeous DIY Floating Candle Wedding Centerpieces


There is something about floating candle centerpieces that help to set the atmosphere for a romantic wedding or an elegant wedding! The beautifully lit candles shimmering in a dimmed room is a breathtaking sight. This week’s wedding centerpiece was created with a $2 wedding vase using pilsner glasses. Also, a $1 nine-inch vase is the center of attention, a beautiful round mirror. So not only am I going to show you an amazingly unique wedding centerpiece. But I will show you how to do so with $1 items from Dollar Tree. So let’s get started! For video instructions, please check out the video tutorial below!

How To Make Floating Candle Wedding Centerpieces


STEP 1: Create an indention in the center of the 10-inch foam disc and the 5-inch foam disc with the rim of your pilsner glass. This is to have a groove in place for you to glue the pilsner glasses. Next, apply E6000 to the bottom of one of the pilsner glasses and attach the other pilsner glass (bottom to bottom). Allow both pieces to dry for 10-12 hours. Your vase for your wedding centerpiece is now complete.

Spray Paint the 5 Inch Disc and Plastic Tray

STEP 2: Hot glue the 5-inch foam disc to the bottom of the large round crystal-cut 14″ plastic tray. Be sure the groove you created is on the outer side of the tray. Spray paint the foam disc and the tray on the front and back with silver foil spray paint. Once the paint has dried, apply hot glue to the groove area and attach the pilsner glass. Let both pieces dry for 30 minutes.

STEP 3: Now apply hot glue to the groove area on the 10-inch foam disc. Next, attach the other pilsner glass. The 10-inch disc will be at the base of the wedding centerpiece, while the tray is glued at the top.

Add Hydrangeas and Peonies

STEP 4: Attach 18-24 small hydrangea heads and 6-8 peonies blossoms to the 10-inch foam disc.

Glue the 9-inch vase and 4 Smaller Vases to the 13-inch Mirror

STEP 5: Take one 9-inch cylinder vase and four 7 1/2″ glass cylinder bud vases and use E6000 to glue all five pieces to the 13-inch mirror. The 9-inch vase will be in the center, with the four smaller vases surrounding it. Let it dry for at least 10 hours.

Attach Chrysanthemums to the Ball Halves

STEP 6: Cut two of the 2-inch green styrofoam balls in half. Then attach 4-5 Chrysanthemums to all 4 of the ball halves. Next, apply E6000 to the bottom of each styrofoam ball half and attach it to the 13-inch round mirror.


STEP 7: Lastly, fill each vase about 3/4 up with water. Add a floating candle to each vase and light the candles! I absolutely love how these DIY floating candle wedding centerpieces turned out! The outcome is amazing and definitely gives you an extra special touch to your wedding!
