Introduction: How to Make an Easy and Elegant Table Center Piece for Christmas (or Other Events)

To buy a Christmas decoration  of table for less than 20€ is today almost an impossible mission, so why not to create your own decoration?
So I am going to show you how to make this very simple, but very elegant, decoration, step by step, with pictures as one goes along.
Of course, these steps needn't necessarily be followed exactly, they can change according to your creativity and vary, particularly in the chosen materials.

Step 1: Step One

To make this decoration, you need:
- Glue gun
- Candles with various forms (and/or colors)
- A slate roof tile (or a different kind of tile)
- Scissors
- Ribbon
- Branches (real or artificial)
- A craft knife
- Decorations like Christmas balls and/or tinsels

Step 2: Step 2

For the first step, you have to stick branches, colored or not (artificial branches, like here, or real branches, natural or painted), cut to the size you want with the craft knife.
Branches will be stuck on the slate, thanks to the Glue gun.

Step 3: Step 3

For this second stage, you have to attach the candles. let us note that here, colors are white and grey, but you can modify them. So I attached, again the glue gun, three candles, like in the picture.

Step 4: Step 4

Then, for this third stage, I have attached three Christmas decorations, that is to say the white leaf, also artificial, the wire branch and the small Christmas balls.
then, you have juste to rework them to give them the shape you want because they are very flexible.

Step 5: Step 5

Finally, for this last stage, you have just to add the ribbon as you like: it can be cut, tied and placed where you want

Step 6: Conclusion

In less than 20minutes and for less than 20€, you have made a beautiful Christmas Table Center Piece Decoration (or other events), with very little equipment  and at low cost.
This decoration can be revisited and readjusted particularly in terms of colors, forms and objects

Cute! I like that if you have decorations already on hand, you could just reuse them for a centerpiece. :)
