A centerpiece on any table of your house can make your room unforgettably stand out. Unfortunately, many tend to overspend on items for this endeavor. However, many of the ideas attached to creating a centerpiece can be done at home during your spare time and there are many options to choose from.
Here is a list of a few centerpiece ideas that will not hurt your wallet or take up too much of your time.
- Spray-Painted Branches: These can be found almost anywhere. Strive for larger sized branches to have a centerpiece that really stands out. Spray painting branches can add a pop of color to any vase. It will be your choice as to what theme you are going for and what color to spray paint them. A can of spray paint and some time in your backyard can save you a pretty penny. Crate and Barrel has branches like this for $36.95.
- Shining Wine Bottles: Take an empty bottle of wine, a little Mod Podge and your choice of glitter — preferably a color that matches the room — to add sparkle to any table top. A couple coats of Mod Podge and glitter might deem necessary for the desired effect. If you already have the empty bottle, that is one less item to worry about, but if you don’t, drinking one before you craft might be plentiful inspiration.
- Strands of Twine: Using rope or yarn to wrap a bottle, vase or jar will add flare to any area of your home. Try different sizes and colors for assortment and variety. Then place flowers in each for an enthusiastic arrangement. Add a ball of rope and small votives beside the vase for extra auxiliary.
- Fruits and Flowers: This is a new trend. Create a fragrant and radiant centerpiece by slicing fresh fruit, such as lemons, limes or oranges, to put in a vase with blooming blossoms. The trick is to use two vases with the same shape and put one inside the other. There should be at least a ¼ inch space in between to stand fruit slices upright. The flowery scent and succulent fruit should last up to 3 days.
- Stylish Keepsakes: Gather up your memorabilia, whether it is wine corks from adulthood or marbles from childhood, to place into a vase as a filler. This has to be done in a clear vase for this theme to work. Fill the vase up halfway and add flowers to top off this uncomplicated and unique centerpiece.
