When using clear glass vases, I sometimes like to add fill material to take the arrangements to a new level, because bare stems don’t always enhance the vases’ designs. Two different fillers are shown in today’s three projects.
The tall amber Kanawha art vase holds strips of balsa wood to add visual interest for the lower half of the container. The wood also serves to stabilize the camellia arrangement.
I don’t think hanging a burning candle on a wall is a good idea. However, I do like this votive holder. I used it as a wall pocket vase instead of its designed purpose. More aquarium gravel serves as filler and mechanical for the simple solitaire arrangement above the kitchen sink.
