This decorative centerpiece is whimsical and easy to make and looks wonderful in any sea or tropic themed party. You can gently place candles in the beads or just leave them plain. Sometimes you can barely see the ultra-water-absorbed beads and it looks like the shells are magically floating.
You will need:
Clear water beads
Clear glass vase or container
1. Get the water beads as absorbed and plump as you can. Fill your container, making sure to scoop up a generous amount of water as well. You need the water to make the beads disappear and look invisible.
2. Wedge sea shells in the water beads. They hold the shells up in almost any position and at first glance they just look like they are hovering.
3. Add tea candles or floating candles if desired.
