How to make a floating oil candle

  1. Add embellishments to container. Use hot glue or waterproof floral clay to adhere items that may move around.
  2. Carefully add water (you can tint the water with food coloring).
  3. Pour 1/2" to 1" of vegetable oil (no substitutions allowed) on the water surface.
  4. Insert wick into float. You may need to mold the wick end between your fingers for easier insertion.
  5. Place the plastic float on the oil. You can add more than one if the container is large enough.
  6. Wait! It's important that you allow the cooking oil to completely fill up the grooves till it reaches the wick.
  7. Light the wick and enjoy the ambience.

Always test your custom candle design before your event to make sure that the burn time is long enough and that decorations will stay in place and that colored items are colorfast.

Important notes about floating oil candles and wedding themes

  1. Remember that safety is your number one priority when creating custom decor for your wedding theme. Small items might pose a choking hazard to children. Wires for twinkle lights could be tripped upon. Tall displays could tip over if a table is bumped. Please consider every possible safety issue when putting together your theme decor.
  2. Please note that burn time will vary according to amount of cooking oil  and number of floating candles used. You can extend burn time by increasing the cooking oil. I highly recommend that you experiment to make sure your oil candles will last through your event.
  3. Because this is your special day, it is a good idea to set up your custom display to make sure it's safe and that everything will work out as you hope.
  4. Don't forget that the bridal table isn't the only place to show off your theme decor. Create smaller versions at the other tables.
