Does anyone know how to get silk flowers to float? My centerpiece budget is very tight. I tried a mock up of my centerpieces this weekend – a bowl-like vase, a few gems in the bottom of the vase, two to three floating candles, and three floating silk flowers. My silk flowers sunk. Does anyone have any idea how to get them to flaot?

Try coating the bottoms in a light layer of wax. You can buy wax at the local craft store and melt it down. Good Luck!

Just a thought and I don’t even know the answer but is there a potential risk of the silk flower(s) catching fire if it’s floating too close to the floating candles?
My Fiance is a fire marshal and I swear to god, he has me trained to think this way. Never thought like this before I met him…lol.

I’m not sure the flowers are big enough to get in the way of the candles. If I ever do get the flowers to float, I’ll have to do a trial, outside just in case.

It might not be TOO much more expensive to do real flowers, and they’ll definately float (I wanted mine to sink for my centerpieces, lol)

Yes, I’m hoping it’s not too much more expensive for real flowers. We actually haven’t met with the florist yet, so this is just a back up plan if the real deal is too expensive. Thanks for the input.

You can float gerber daisys very easily. That may even be cheaper than silk flowers and they won’t catch fire. Just cut off the stems.
