I am excited about today’s post, I’ve been struggling with this particular project for quite some time now! My husband and I were given a new (to us) and beautiful dining table by his grandparents a few weeks back. Since that time, I’ve been trying to figure out what I want the center piece to be for the table. I have attempted a few ideas, only to scrap them because they didn’t turn out how I wanted them to.
Today though, I have finally reached success!
I made my way to Michael’s and bought two sets of these white flowers for $8. They were having a 40% sale and I had gift card money left over from Christmas. When I got home I found these cans leftover from last night’s dinner and I painted them a light blue. Once the paint dried, I took a pair of small pliers and cut the flowers down to my liking and then added them to the cans.
After that, I took some leftover ribbon from previous projects and, using a glue stick, wrapped some around the cans for a rustic touch – I’m trying to channel my inner Joanna Gaines 😉 Then, I topped it all off by placing the tree cut piece I already had laying around, and used it as a base, just to make it stand out a little more.
And here you have it!
This was so easy to make, it only took me a little over an hour.
There is currently very little wiggle room in our bank account for anything fun, so I had to be creative with this project. It’s amazing how little time and money I had to spend to make this centerpiece, and it turned out beautiful.
I hope you all enjoyed this week’s post, hopefully it gives you some inspiration for your own home!
