Floating Heart Candle


Hearts are one of my most favorite shapes to decorate with.  They’re romantic, pretty, and very versatile.  With Valentine’s Day coming up, and the debut of our “DIY Wood Planked Wall” in our master bathroom already in the books, I thought a “Floating Heart Candle” would fit in perfectly.  In a few weeks I’ll take it a step further and share our “DIY Romantic Bathroom Date” with you!  That’s right.  I’m planning a date in our bathroom…

She wouldn’t.

Oh yes, she would.

Until then… supplied me with amazing products to prepare this floating candle for our date.

This pretty little sparkly floating heart candle was very easy to make and is so versatile.   Not only can I use it in our jacuzzi tub, but I can use it in a bowl as well.  Anywhere that floats is good.  Even a pool, or fountain (I added white roses to the bowl).

You may be wondering if some of the glitter comes off in the tub. I was sure to take care off that in the instructions below because I definitely do not want glitter in my bath water.

As with any candles, never leave it/them unattended.

I hope you make 1 or 2.  Or 3…


1.Trace a heart (the size is up to you) onto a 2 inch FloraCraft® Make it:Fun® Foam Sheet using a pencil and a heart cut out (FloraCraft® Make it:Fun® Foam Sheet is a must if you want it to float!)

2. Cut out the heart from the 2 inch FloraCraft® Make it:Fun® Foam Sheet with a FloraCraft® StyroCutter® Plus.  Use a well ventilated room and be careful not to burn yourself, or your surface.

3. Shave off the excess foam using a FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Tool and get the heart nice and smooth.

4. Carve out a little nook for your tea light using the same tool.  (Use tin holder with tea light or foam will melt when candle is lit.)

5. Paint FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® StyroGlue® on the heart where you would like to add glitter.  Sprinkle on glitter and shake off excess.  After glue dries, rinse entire heart in warm water to get off all excess glitter.  Let dry.

6. Place the tea light in the heart and set somewhere you can float it.

Don’t forget to stop by next month for our “DIY Romantic Bathroom Date”!
