How to Plant a Bulb in an Empty Candle Vessel: A Simple and Eco-Friendly Guide

Are you looking for a creative and sustainable way to reuse your empty Kansas Earth and Sky Candle Co candle vessels? Why not turn them into charming planters for spring bulbs? This simple how-to guide will show you how to plant a bulb in an empty candle vessel using small decorative rocks, water, and an empty glass candle vessel. It's a budget-friendly way to add some greenery to your home while also reducing waste.

What You'll Need:

  • Clean empty KESSCo candle vessel

  • Small decorative rocks

  • Spring bulb (such as a tulip or daffodil)

  • Water

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Clean your empty candle vessel thoroughly, removing any leftover wax and wick.

  2. Place a layer of small decorative rocks at the bottom of the vessel. This will help with drainage and prevent the bulb from sitting in water.

  3. Place your spring bulb on top of the rocks, pointed end up. Make sure the bulb is positioned securely and does not wobble.

  4. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the bulb. You want the roots to be able to reach the water but not be submerged in it.

  5. Place your planted bulb in a sunny spot and keep the water level consistent. As the bulb grows, you may need to add more water.

And that's it! In just a few simple steps, you've turned your empty candle vessel into a beautiful and eco-friendly planter for spring bulbs. Enjoy watching your bulb grow and bloom, adding a touch of nature to your home decor.
