To create a similar unity set, you'll need the following products and fresh flowers.  Let's start with the pillar candle.  It shows a "floating" flower ring around the center of the candle.  

Measure down the candle and decide where you want the ring wreath to rest.  Remember that the flower ring will be a couple inches thick.  Using the waterproof tape, attach it around the pillar candle.  Once in place, gently push each of the corsage pins through the tape into the candle.  The tape is to give added support so the candle doesn't crack.  (It helps to have a lit candle, holding the pin's tip into the fire and heating the tip before pushing into candle.)

Float soak the ring in water treated with Crystal Clear Flower Food.  (Please don't skip this step.  Especially with DIY flowers, that don't have the advantage of a large walk in cooler such as a florist has, needs the nutrients as well as the water to extend the life of the flowers.  Read more on how to process your wholesale flowers correctly.
