Snorkel Candles


  • Tall glass vases
  • Seashells
  • Coral
  • Starfish and/or other sea inspired décor
  • Floating candles
  • Water
  • Wire
  • Wire cutters


  1. Pre-soak any items that would have a tendency to float, such as, starfish, branches, etc.

  2. Attach a few sea trinkets to the branches or corral so that they will stay put when surrounded by water.

  3. Start with a basic "ground cover' for the bottom of the vase, like red sponge or small shells.

  4. Add the taller branches and coral.

  5. Put any remaining trinkets into the arrangement and fill with water. Do not be alarmed if the water is murky at first, everything will settle.

  6. Top with floating candles.
