Think Outside When Making Homemade Holiday Centerpieces
While you can create holiday-specific centerpieces for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or whatever you celebrate, look outside your home and envision what the weather will be like during your celebration and incorporate those items into your centerpiece. You may also want to include early spring ideas into your display so that you can use them for Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, or St. Patrick’s Day. Alternatively, if you live in a warmer climate, you may want to focus on creating a peaceful winter scene filled with snow and icicles that you are not likely to see.
Elegant Holiday Centerpieces That Everyone Will Love
In the paradigm of elegance, it is often true that “less is more.” Consider sticking to one or two colors, like whites or holiday greens. Minimalistic designs are usually easier to carry out effectively.
Elegance in your holiday design generally requires some or all of the following elements:
- Candles of varying widths and/or heights
- Greenery, possibly with holly
- Clear crystal or glassware
- A few sparkling or tiny white lights
- Natural woods and branches
Tips for Creating Elegant Artificial Centerpieces
Consider starting with high-quality artificial greenery or plants. Then, add some holiday flair, like candy canes, bells, or deer. A great way to save money when creating homemade holiday centerpieces is to incorporate elements from nature, so go on a nature walk to see what you can find. Depending on your location, you may be able to find winter flora, pinecones, or evergreen boughs.
While there are many sites where you can gather ideas for DIY centerpieces, be sure to let your personality show through in your creation. For example, a horse enthusiast may want to add a tiny horse-drawn sleigh to their design while an aviation enthusiast may wish to add an airplane with a reindeer pilot to theirs.
You can easily find the crafting supplies you need at online or local stores to make elegant centerpieces. Making your homemade holiday centerpieces and table decorations can be a great family project that everyone will love doing together. This is a great way to build holiday memories in your new home.
