Koyal Wholesale offers several options for a fun, glowing centerpiece. Try pairing the submersible LED lights with colorful Deco Bead Water Pearls. These polymer pearls are created by simply adding water and can hold 100 times their weight in water! This causes the water absorbent beads to expand into perfect miniature spheres. They come in 23 colors to suit any decor.
To make them glow, insert a white submersible LED in the vase. These make a wonderful anchor for your floral arrangements, allowing you to move and place your flowers into the desired design.
Water pearls work great for candle lighting displays too!
