DIY Glamorous Centerpiece



Get The Look
This designer centerpiece is not as hard as it looks to achieve!
Combine your wedding colors and style with the instructions below
to create your own glamorous wedding centerpieces.



Supplies Needed Per Table:
~Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks
~Wire Cutters
~Large Knife
~Branches
~Silver Spray Paint (any kind will work...I used Krylon indoor)
~Battery Operated Moon Lights (small battery packs)
~One 12" Glass Cylinder
~Three Foam Balls (white not green)...varying in size
~Approximately Two to Three Dozen Small to Medium Size Flowers (daisies, dahlias, sweet peas, and hydrangea work great)
~One Box Scatter Petals
~Scatter Pearls and Gems
~Three Votive Candle Holders with battery operated or real votive candles
~Three Strands of Pearls
All supplies can be found at your local craft store or Save On Crafts online.




Directions:
Plug in your hot glue gun and allow it enough time to heat up. Be sure to place it on something you don't mind the hot glue dripping onto. While your hot glue gun heats up you can take your branch outside and spray paint it. Follow the directions on the spray can. You will need to prop it upright to dry so it doesn't stick to anything as it dries. Fill your glass cylinder with flower petals about halfway. You can add more once your branches dry and you insert them into the glass cylinder.



Your hot glue gun should be hot now so you can begin to create your 'flower puffs'...careful not to burn yourself! Cut about half an inch off the bottom of each of foam balls. You want to create a flat surface so they don't roll. Use your wire cutters to cut your flowers off the bunch and to shorten the stem. You want your stems to be about four inches long. One at a time, put a bit of glue on the end of the stem and push the flower into the foam ball. Do this until the entire foam ball, minus the flat section you cut out, is covered in flowers. Repeat this on the two other foam balls.


Place the branch and petal-filled glass cylinder into the center of the table. The three 'flower puffs' should surround the glass cylinder along with your votive candle holders. The pearl strands get draped over the flowers and onto the table. Add scatter pearl and gems for an extra touch of glamour. Battery operated fairy lights can also be added to the branches by hiding the battery pack in the petals and wrapping the lights loosely around the branches.
Add charger plates, in your wedding colors, to your table and a favor to each place. Sequin or satin table linens also make a great addition to complete this fun and glamorous look.
