DIY winter centrepiece ideas
Winter is not the time to let the weather get you down. Sure, the leaves may have fallen from most of the trees out there, but you can still enjoy plenty of natural beauty during this season. There are even some fantastic winter centrepiece designs that you can use in your home. Here are some of these beautiful ideas that will warm up your home this winter.
A branch tribute
While the trees may look better during the summer when they are lush and covered with a green blanket, they also have an undeniable allure during the winter. You can create this type of look by simply using a cylindrical vase, some branches and pine cones. Use the pine cones to fill your vase and add the branches to create the appearance of a tree. You can even hang decorative icicles from the branches if you like. Don’t forget about the importance of lighting. You can use candles, LED candles or even fairy lights to create a whimsical atmosphere.
In so many cases, the perfect winter centrepiece depends on the vase you use. You can give your plain vases a fabulous new look this winter with a little thin double-sided tape and glitter. Silver glitter is good but, if you can find some white glitter it will work even better. Apply one or more bands of table around the vase and remove the top protective layer. Sprinkle generously with glitter and allow to set. Now you can add some fresh water and your favourite winter flowers. Just remember, white flowers tend to look the best in these kinds of vases.
If you are ever in doubt, just remember that you can never go wrong with white flowers in your winter centrepiece. Even if you are not sure what types of flowers are currently available, all you have to do is ask your florist for their suggestions and advice. Make sure that you keep foliage to a minimum. You don’t want to completely eliminate the colour green from the display but you don’t want the centrepiece to be too bright and summery.
Now that you have a few ideas for decorating your table, you don’t have to worry about having a dull or boring home this winter. These winter centrepiece design ideas can also be adapted to create several floral displays throughout your home. Winter only lasts for a few months – embrace this amazing season!
