Now that you’re inspired to try something new and unique, it’s time to use Orbeez or water crystal gels alongside fresh flower heads to create one-of-a-kind floral arrangements. It’s simpler than you might think, as demonstrated by TikTok creator @girlyfoofoo.

You’ll need a clear glass flower vase, Orbeez or water crystal gels, fresh cut blooms of your choice, water, and a pair of scissors. Start by placing the water beads in a bowl and adding water. Follow the instructions on the packaging to allow them to absorb the water fully. This might take a few hours, so be patient. Then, take your clear glass vase and carefully add the fully expanded Orbeez. Make sure to fill it to your desired level. Cut the stems of your fresh flowers to the desired length, allowing them to stand out above the Orbeez. Arrange them creatively or in layers, playing with colors and sizes. Gently pour water into the vase, ensuring the stems of the fresh flowers are submerged while the Orbeez are still visible below. The water will help keep your flowers hydrated.

Another TikTok creator, @sandysleiman1, has added floating candles to the mix. You can also use this method to create stunning floating candle arrangements for a romantic touch. Light up a few floating candles on top of the water in your flower- and Orbeez-filled vase to create a dreamy ambiance.
