Floating Florals

Step 1

Remove silk floral blooms and greenery from stems.

Step 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.

Step 3

Fill your glass container to the desired level with water.

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Step 6

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