It is no secret I love candles, we covered that on Day 5. I found some incredible rustic white taper candles with a touch of sparkle and knew I had to create something with them. So, we have an easy centerpiece idea for Day 11!
Small terra-cotta pot, taper candle, white paint, snow spray, fine glitter and greens.
Not pictured: floral foam, vine wire, glue for glitter, clear sealer and additional greens.
Lay out the greens, dust them with a coat of snow spray and then a sprinkling of glitter.
While the greens are drying, paint the terra-cotta pot with white paint and allow to dry.
After the white paint is dry (it dries quickly), spray the terra-cotta pot with an adhesive (I like glue for glitter by Design Master) and dust the terra-cotta pot with glitter.
When the glue is dry lightly coat the outside of the pot with a clear sealer.
Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside the pot, soak the foam in water and then wrap the bottom and sides in plastic and insert it into the pot.
Press the taper candle down into the foam (I pressed it in until I hit the bottom).
Insert the greens into the floral foam.
I finished it off with a twist of rustic vine wire.Whether on the mantle or on the table this is an elegant centerpiece for the holidays.
I think I will make 3 for the center of my table!
