DIY CENTERPIECE


While blogwalking this morning, I came across this nice and easy do-it-yourself project.  The original article featured a Christmas-themed candle holder centerpiece with three upside down glass wines, each with a mistletoe inside and red tea candle on top.

I thought our dinner table at home was a little bare and could use a bit of dressing up and this DIY would make a really pretty centerpiece, so it got me excited to take on this DIY.  I eagerly scouted our home for the materials needed.  I was lucky enough to have found two unused glass wines that Vince and I got as a gift (we are not wine drinkers, so we don't really use them), a couple of fake lei (which were used for my Hawaiian-themed birthday party last year) sitting in a basket just collecting dusts, and about half-a-dozen of tea candles.  Since the original idea called for a three-candle holder centerpiece set and I only have two, I just used an ordinary glass as my third man in this triumvirate of a craft.

So, what can you say about my centerpiece?  Not bad, eh?  I know it looks so kikay because of the colorful lei, but there are other more options you can go for with this DIY.  For example, you can use fresh flowers, jelly beans, decorative stones and the likes to put inside the glass wine, and you can even make a four or five-candle holder centerpiece instead of just the usual three.  Nice, eh? ☻
