Now that Thanksgiving has passed, I can’t stop thinking about the holidays! I still need to put up my tree, but I’m making progress on other decorations.
Today, I’m sharing a beautiful and chic nature-inspired holiday centerpiece. Keep reading to learn how to make your own!

One of my favorite things about December in New York are the Christmas tree stands. They start to pop up around Thanksgiving, and you’ll find one every block or two.
These tree stands line the sidewalks, and there is nothing better than walking through one and smelling that amazing pine scent. Add a little snow, and you’ve got some serious holiday magic!
I wrapped the evergreens in burlap, then mixed them with my favorite flameless candles, a few birch stumps, and some pine cones that I painted to give a snowy effect. It was so simple to make, and the natural elements are perfect for the holidays.
- pine cones
- white craft paint
- small paint brush
- 3 mini evergreen trees
- 5 flameless candles of various heights
- 3 birch stumps of varying heights (I found mine at Michaels although these are similar.)
Start by dipping your brush into the white craft paint. Apply the paint to the tips of the pine cones. I though this would take a long time, but it only took a few minutes, and the pine cones turned out so cute!
Set the pine cones aside to dry.
Place the plate on the burlap and trace around it with a Sharpie. Cut out the circle, then make two more burlap circles.
Note: you may need to adjust the size of your circles, depending on the size of your pots.
You could add a bow, instead of a knot, but I wanted to keep it simple. Plus, once everything is in place, the bows won’t be that noticeable anyway.
Next, I added my candles. I stacked three of the candles on birch stumps that I found at a craft store. These stumps are the perfect way to add a little height and variety to the centerpiece. I set the remaining two candles right on my tablecloth.
Finally, I added the pine cones.
Play around with the arrangement until you get a look you like.
