Floating candles add instant atmosphere to a casual summer table, and with our technique, you can create lots of them in only a couple of hours.
Materials
  • Muffin tins or other molds
  • Petroleum jelly or nonstick cooking spray
  • Paraffin or beeswax candles, or wax bricks and color chips

Steps:3
For centuries, lilies (Lilium) have been prized for their sweet fragrance and graceful, nodding blooms.

Materials
  • Ironstone vase
  • Flower frog (Martha secures hers to the vase's bottom with floral clay)
  • Cut-flower food
  • About 30 lilies
  • Sharp knife or bypass pruners
  • Tissue (optional)
