This year I wanted something festive to put on my coffee table but I didn't want to go out and just buy something.
That's why I decided to make this Festive Holiday Coffee Table Centerpiece. It's super easy and looks great when it's done! It takes less then an hour and cost about $10
This is also my entry for the Holiday Contest, so if you enjoy it, please vote!
Step 1: Materials
- hot glue gun ( with extra sticks)
- scrap piece of styrofoam
- candle holder with plate (from the dollar store)
- fake wreath branches ( dollar store)
- pine cones x3
- miniature ball ornaments
- gold glitter paint
- decorative branches ( gold)
Step 2: Setting Up the Base
Once you are happy with your 3 styrofoam bases, use your scissors to cut different lengths of fake branches and glue them down until you can not see the plate. ( I found that starting with large branches at the bottom, and using smaller ones on top worked best.)
Step 3: Adding the Candle Holders
Finish this step by cutting small pieces of branch to fit in between the candle holders until you can not see the styrofoam.
Step 4: Adding the Decorations
Arrange your decorations anyway you want but I found it easiest if you placed the gold branches first, and arranged the pine cones and ornaments around them.
Step 5: The Final Touch
I also found that dipping your paint brush into the paint and flicking it onto your centerpiece gives it a great effect too. ( try not to get any in the glass candle holders)
Once your paint dries place your candles into the candle holders and you good to go.
And that's it. You now have a great, festive centerpiece that didn't cost a fortune and still looks fantastic. This also makes a great gift around the holiday season!
