Light Up Your Flowers

4 Materials
5 Minutes
With just a few items you can light up a room with flowers! This project is simple, inexpensive, and elegant. Add ambiance to any room, great for holiday centerpieces or nightlight. Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift - great for craft night too.

For this project you'll need the following:

  • Fake flowers
  • Scissors
  • Battery operated tealight
  • A candle holder of your choice
The first thing you will do is pull a flower head off the stem of your bouquet.
Next you will need to pull apart all the layers of the flower head. Be sure to keep them in order as you will need to remember how it goes back together. If your flower has plastic that held it together (like the green pieces in the picture) you can dis-guard those.
You'll be sliding the flower layers over the the battery operated tealight. You will most likely need to cut a small slit in the center hole of the flower layers for it to fit over the tealight.
You'll put each layer of the flower onto the battery operated tealight as you see here.
Continue to add each layer of the flower....
until it's all put back together. Feel free to fluff it up. If you accidentally cut a slit too big, just add a little hot glue under the flower layer to hold it in place.
Once your flower is complete, pick a candle holder of your choice to finish the display. Here are a couple I'll be using, but you could also use a bud vase - there are so many possibilities.
Place your flower onto your candle holder.
If you are worried about the stability of this type of display, feel free to add a dab of hot glue to secure it.
Place the flower somewhere in your house to enjoy.
Looks good day and night.
So many flowers, so many candle holders, so many options! Easy to adjust for the seasons.
Makes a great nightlight too.

    Is there something you can spray on to stiff the flowers up, so they don't get floppy from handling? This project gets 5 stars from me and beautiful and simple to make.
    Thank you,

    Have you tried putting the bouquet back together and put lights on only a few?

  • Karen Boyd Karen Boyd on Aug 30, 2017
    How do you get the tea lights into a taper candle holder? The tea lights i have are too big.

    That's pretty cool!

    This is so easy and beautiful who wouldn't want one. Stick a small little label out under a petal with a short message, luv you, thinking of you etc. I have 3 done already but no way to show you.
    Thanks for the great idea Joyce
