Tips for working with Deco Beads.

Cube Vase with Deco Beads & LED Submersible Candle

Our event planners use a lot a deco beads and we have a few tips to share with you.

1. Use distilled water for best results when rehydrating the beads (ball is smaller than 1/8" original size), the gel-like marbles will be different sizes (3/8" - 1") after absorbing water. You will get larger beads and they will be more uniform in size when using distilled water, however tap water can also be used. It takes about 1.5 quarts of water per Pkg. Allow the beads to fully expand, about 6 - 8 hours.

2. Have a large container to place the beads in to rehydrate (we use plastic 5 gallon paint buckets, available at home improvement centers). Remove the expanded beads from the water, strain through a plastic colander to drain water off the beads, and pour into vases or bowls. Each Pkg fills approx a 4" x 4" x 4" amount of space.

3. Gel beads when rehydrated BOUNCE, so be careful when pouring them from one container to another.

4. We have seen ideas for use of deco beads that say you can scatter them on tables. Not a good idea. They will bounce off onto the floor and if stepped on they are slippery and they also will crush into carpeting.

5. Do not plan on using more than 1/2 inch of water in the vases with the beads. The beads will float to the top and you will have water at the bottom of the vase. Flowers can still be added because the beads are full of water.

6. The beads can be used over and over again. If you will be using them often, after the event, pour the beads back into a 5 gallon plastic bucket, add enough water to the bucket to cover the beads then seal with a lid (will stay good for months). If you need to dehydrate the gel beads. Place them (single layer) on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and leave them until they dry out and shrink down to the original size. Then store in plastic bags.

7. If using artificial flowers, be sure to use water proof floral tape on the cut end of the flower. The wire inside the artificial flowers will rust and cause a discoloring of the beads.

8. White LED Submersible Candles can be placed in the bottom of a clear glass vase to illuminate your centerpieces.

In this arrangement we used 8" cylinder bud vases filled with clear deco beads and placed two red roses in each vase. On a 12" round mirror we set three cylinder vases (7 1/2 " x 3 1/2", 8 3/4" x 3 1/2" & 10" x 3 1/2") filled with clear deco beads. A floating candle was placed in the top of each vase.
