Step 2: Designing Your Candleholders
designing your candleholderMap out your design. The first layer will be your botanicals, which will then be covered by a layer of glue and tissue paper. Place the botanicals you want to work with on the glass container, eyeballing it to see how many of each variety you will need.

We chose an alternating design of a skeleton leaf, fern, skeleton leaf, and so on.
