But, the last few years I have had fun creating unique, SUPER inexpensive centerpieces with items I find around the house.
This year was no different. After making my Christmas table runner (details HERE) and picking my woodland theme, I knew a centerpiece to fit the theme would be easy. This year's centerpiece took less than 30 minutes to gather and put together.
I picked up this great set of Eddie Bauer candles in a cute wood box for $5 at the thrift store.
I used 3 logs from our wood pile cut to three different lengths for the candles. I did nail a small nail in the middle top of each log to keep the candles in place.
I cut some branches and some evergreen pieces from our yard.
I painted the branches and some pine cones with Matthew Mead's Copper paint from Fusion Mineral paint. This color has been another huge inspiration for my Christmas theme this year.
I put the branches in an ironstone pitcher from the thrift store.
I put it all on a garage sale tray painted with Fusion Mineral's Fort York Red.
Simple, woodsy, perfect for my Christmas home.
Look around your home for easy items to use in your centerpiece this season.
