DIY Holiday Centerpiece Idea

holiday-centerpiece‘Tis the season to decorate your home for the holidays with wreaths, beautifully decorated trees and mantles—not to mention eye catching centerpieces for the dining table.

This year I wanted to add some warmth and a rustic accent to my centerpiece, so I used an old carved wooden drawer (shown here) and filled it with fresh evergreens, pods, red berries, and miniature white orchids. The arrangement is simple, fragrant, plus it adds a splash of color and seasonal flair to my table. Best of all, it was inexpensive to create. I found everything I needed around my home—and you can too.

To gather the materials for your holiday centerpiece, take a walk outdoors and look for fresh greens, berries, pine cones, and birch bark. Gather what you need then head back inside and look for a beautifully shaped bowl, and some candles, and start arranging. If the materials you need are not readily available around your home, try visiting your local farmer’s market or garden center and you are likely to discover a wonderful selection.
