More "Drowning" Orchids…

Orchid Trial #2
*Sigh* OK. I promise this is THEE last submerged orchid trial I am going to do. Even I am getting sick of this. But I created this with my dying dendros fiance got me for Valentines day and thought I’d share because I think its pretty for those looking for a super cheap centerpiece. This took like 5 minutes to throw together.
I apologize for the kitchen appliances and liquor in the background in advance!

5 glass cubes from DollarTree- $5
1 glass cylinder from Michaels-$3
3 stems of dendrobium orchids-$6 (approximately)
Large floating candle: $2
1 pack of small floating candles from DollarTree-$1
Water

Grand Total=$17.00
