With Christmas dinner just over two weeks away, I had to share this gorgeous yet very simple DIY Wreath Centerpiece. I came across this great project on one of my absolute favourite wedding & style blogs, Style Me Pretty. Whether you’re crafty like Martha (Stewart), or have never attempted a DIY project, this fancy (in appearance), yet easy to make centerpiece, is sure to amaze you, and your guests! It took me less than an hour to put together this stunning tower of greens, and I love the added glow of the creme-coloured candles on top! Take a look at the simple instructions below, and have fun!
3 foam wreath rings
4 small branches or sticks
Variety of winter greens (try: pines, juniper, & boxwood)
4 Slim white candles
Green Floral Wire
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Step 1: Make your wreaths: Arrange your greens around a foam ring, and wrap with green floral wire to secure in place. Start with a base of basic pine, and add in sprigs of boxwood and juniper as you go. Repeat for the other 2 rings.
Step 2: Cut your sticks to 14-16″ lengths.
Step 3: Insert each of the sticks into the top of the first wreath. Make sure they are firmly in the foam, and secure with hot glue. Slide the second wreath on the sticks down to half of the length the sticks, and secure with hot glue. Then press the third wreath on to the top of the sticks and hot glue in place.
Step 4: Take the four taper candles and insert into the top wreath, and light.
