DIY Holiday Centerpiece

DIY Holiday CenterpieceThe holidays are coming up. That means snow, holiday music, and of course decorating. If you’ve been following Make Something Mondays for a while, you know that I am not a huge fan of holiday decorating. But, there is one piece of advice that I’ve been given over the years that has really helped my blog. “If you can’t beat them, join them.” I don’t like decorating, but I like crafting. So, if I use the holidays to inspire my crafts, then I seem to enjoy them more. And my audience seems to enjoy them. That makes me happy. So, here we go!

DIY holiday centerpiece materialsThing You Will Need:
Candle
Glitter*
Pinecones*
Clear bowl
White sand
Pine needles
Colorful ornament balls

*optional (not pictured)

Glitter snowStep 1:
Pour the white sand into the bowl. If you chose to use glitter you can pour that in now as well. Shake it up or stir in the glitter.

Winter CenterpieceStep 2:
Start adding in your decorative elements. I added the ornament balls first, then some cinnamon-scented pinecones, then pine needles.

I added a second layer of silver glitter over the holiday decorations  for more of a winter effect.

DIY Holiday CenterpieceCheck that out! $8 and 10 mins later and you have a lovely winter-inspired holiday centerpiece. This craft would’ve costed $6 if I wouldn’t have used the pinecones that I bought for my DIY Fall-Inspired Wreath. If you live in an area like I do, the pine trees are prevalent, so you will be able to find what you need out in nature. Take advantage of that!

Happy crafting!

  1. Really nice…I do like the holiday season, but I don’t love the red and green, or maybe the prevalence of red. I don’t mind it, but…it goes overboard at the holidays. Though I suppose the same could be said for me and Halloween (do not leave me in a Halloween store unguarded with money :P). I do however love the smell of cinnamon and candles.

    • If that is the case, you could do this same thing, but with tinted sand (maybe a light brown) with a white candle, some pine cones, and a few different colored decorative balls. Like a few blue, orange, and green ones. It would still be festive but not Christmas overboard.
