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 wanted to bring a little of that seasonal magic into my own home, so I created this easy DIY Christmas centerpiece ... isn't it pretty?
I have a fake tree, so I love bringing in touches of holiday greenery wherever I can.
And an elegant Christmas centerpiece is the perfect place to do it!
So when I spotted mini evergreens at the Home Depot, I couldn't resist grabbing a few. They're so cute!
Then, I headed home to create this easy DIY Christmas centerpiece.
I wanted this pretty centerpiece to go with my Rustic Glam Holiday Dining Room. So I incorporated many of the same decor elements.
To give the centerpiece a rustic feel, I wrapped the evergreens in burlap and tied them with a buffalo plaid ribbon, then I mixed in my favorite flameless candles, a few birch stumps, and some pine cones that I painted to give a snowy effect.
This easy homemade Christmas centerpiece is perfect for any table, including round tables, because you can rearrange it to fit any shape.
It was so simple to make, and the natural elements are perfect for the holidays.
Can I just say how much I love flameless candles?
The ones I have are made from real wax on the outside, and they look and feel just like regular candles.
They even have a delicious vanilla scent that's perfect for the holidays!
How to Make an Easy DIY Christmas Centerpiece
Want to make this easy Christmas centerpiece for your table? Here's what you'll need:
- pine cones
- white craft paint
- small paint brush
- ribbon (this buffalo plaid ribbon is similar to what I used)
- 3 mini evergreen trees (I found mine at Home Depot, but I've seen them everywhere, even CVS!)
- 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.
Set the pine cones aside to dry.
To be honest, I thought this would be tedious and take a long time. It only took a few minutes though, and the pine cones turned out so cute!
Next, you'll make a burlap wrap for the evergreen trees using a large plate as a guide.
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.
Wrap the burlap around the pot, then tie a ribbon around the burlap and knot into place. Trim the ends from the ribbon.
You could add a bow, instead of a knot, but I wanted to keep it simple and rustic.
Plus, once everything is in place, the bows aren't that noticeable anyway.
To assemble the holiday centerpiece, I placed the evergreens on my table first, slightly staggering them in a loose "V" formation.
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 your homemade Christmas centerpiece until you get a look you like.
The whole centerpiece came together very organically. It's so simple that you'll find it impossible to mess up.
The best thing is that you can keep it up all month.
Even if you have a black thumb, those mini evergreens are nearly impossible to kill. I forgot to water mine regularly and they lived on!
This rustic DIY Christmas centerpiece looks just as pretty during the day as it does lit up at night!
I love seeing those candles glow every night, and there's no need to replace them since they'll never burn down.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this easy DIY Christmas centerpiece!
