For most of the year, we keep a tall vase of fake purple alliums on our kitchen table, but this year I was feeling the itch to come up with a more festive centerpiece. The key for me, though, was I wanted to figure out a way to do it without breaking the bank, so I began gathering things from our decor cabinet and craft boxes, and this is what I came up with.
I love how it turned out!
Here’s what I used to put mine together, but this is just a starting place. Look around and see what you already have before you go out and spend money on new supplies!
- red charger
- clear vase
- vase filler (Hobby Lobby, $4.99)
- pillar candles, tall & short
- cinnamon sticks (Hobby Lobby, $3.99)
- burlap, 3 colors
- twine, red
- styrofoam balls, small
Cut a square of burlap to fit on your charger. Fill the vase with the vase filler, potpourri, decorative snow, etc.
Wrap burlap, twine or ribbon around your candles. Completely wrap the styrofoam ball. Tie a handful of cinnamon sticks together.
Layer all of the elements together on the charger until you’re happy with it.
