I wanted to make a centerpiece that would be versatile for both Thanksgiving and Christmas since the two holidays are not even one month apart. I went for a natural or rustic look with a little bit of sparkle!
I have to have something in the center of my table or it just looks too plain, to me. In the summer I usually just have a vase with fresh blooms on the table, but for the fall and winter holidays, I like to have a little something more! This year, Thanksgiving and Christmas are only 28 days apart. I wanted to make a quick, affordable, and versatile centerpiece that I could keep up for the end of autumn and the start of winter. My husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving at our house in VA; my husband’s family (my family now too!) are coming from FL, SC, and GA. Jason and I will be traveling to FL in December to spend Christmas with our families.
- Burlap Roll
- 2 Evergreen Branches
- 1 sparkle branch (with 3 stems)
- 1 large candle or lantern or glass bowl
Even if rustic is not your style, I hope this DIY post conveys how quick you can throw an inexpensive centerpiece together that will look great through the winter season!
