Are your short on time this holiday season? We’ve come up with 4 simple DIY holiday centerpieces to add a bit of holiday cheer to your home!
All of the centerpieces are designed by using the greens from our Christmas tree. As we were choosing our tree, I asked that they bundle up leftover branches for me. So, basically, these are free decorations made from the branches of our Christmas Tree!
My Simple real life truth ~
Decorating with greens throughout the house for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do at the Holidays. Without a doubt it’s an easy & quick way to warm up any room. From Kitchen Islands, to coffee tables, to a dining room center piece or just to tuck on an end table. And it’s basically free!
To make these DIY holiday centerpieces, I used what I had in the house & then added greens…
Keeping things informal using a large pitcher as a vase combined with a vintage Spode platter sets the stage for an informal brunch.
Working with an unusual container such as this felt bucket it suddenly morphs into an awesome vase.
Just place a glass container inside, fill with greens & top it off with a natural element like this star.
The casual feel the felt container is perfect especially for a family room. Just make sure to keep the pine branches low so you can see over it.
Mixing casual and formal pieces is one of my favorite things to do. So this dining room centerpiece was really a fun piece to design.
Grounding the DIY holiday centerpiece is a large tray with a mirror bottom.
Three tall glass vases filled with wine corks and branches provide color & height.
Then the smaller red vase filled with a sprig of pine that sits upon a vintage silver trivet adds warmth.
Votive candles tucked around the arrangement finishes it off.
Easy … to tuck a few greens on an end table!
I have a cut glass vase that I love and filled it with greens … simple!
Then I added one of our favorite Christmas decorations this adorable vintage teddy bear from B. Altman, he’s almost 30 years old!
It’s the simplicity of the greens with the formality of the vase combined with a personal element that makes it warm and welcoming.
