    Floating Florals

  1. 1

    Remove silk floral blooms and greenery from stems.

  2. 2

    Spray each bloom and piece of greenery with Scotchgard spray and allow to dry. This will waterproof your silk flowers and prevent them from sinking.

  3. 3

    Fill your glass container to the desired level with water.

  4. 4

    Add decorative stones to the bottom of your water-filled glass container.

  5. 5

    Gently place the dried silk flowers and greenery on top of the water in the glass dish.

  6. 6

    If desired, colour your water with dye to compliment the flowers and stones.
