I’m pretty sure its just those water gems that look like little clear beads out of water, but when you put them in water everything blends and it looks like this. I have some for my wedding, I got them at Michaels the craft store next to the vases. They come in different colors and they are pretty cheap.

It’s a water gel. It’s not the water pearls. I’ve seen it before online but can’t find it right now, bit I did find One link for you. Hope this helps.

I too have seen the water gel, but I believe it was either at Michaels or AC Moore.  I remember seeing it listed as a supply on one of the project idea things they have around in the different sections of the store.

That’s a pretty cool idea for a centerpiece. They have them at hobby lobby and at michael’s the gel beats come in all different colors as well. Good luck!!!

Did you try this?

I think you would need to stir in the confetti when the gelatin is a “thick soup” so you can get the paper in, but not let it sink to the bottom. That’s probably where the bubbles come from. Then place it back in the fridge and add candles at a more firm stage?

This looks awesome, but it may take a few tries to get just so lol. Nice thing is if you don’t like it, it scoops out 🙂

Actually you can use just plain water pearls, and set the confetti ontop various pearls with different hights, and once you are finished, just fill the vase with water, and they will become see through. Just sprinkle for pour slowly in order to not move your decor.

You can use the water beads. you layer everything then add water , then the beads disappear.. and i found square tiles at lowes. beveled and rough edges. I am buying them there

We got our “water beads” at the dollar store, one pkg only has about a tablespoon in it, but they grow about 50x when put in water and fill a whole vase.  If you drain off the water they look like glass beads, but if you fill the container with water the beads disappear but would hold your items in place.

May I ask where you found vases and for what price?

I hope you got the gel part figured out, I’m not experienced so I’m not mush help with that but I think the “stuff” inside and around looks like seaglass. You could also use shards of ceramic like they use with pottery crafts
