Christmas Candle Centerpiece

After decorating my living room there was one piece that was pretty bare and that was my coffee table.  I had this over the top idea of a runner with garland draped all across with beautiful glowing candles until I remembered that I have a kitty who will easily find it as a play toy.  Then while at Joann’s fabric store picking up some burlap and I came across some vases that were 4 bucks and I had a great idea!  I hit up the floral isle and grabbed some faux garland that was 60% off and some berries also 60% off and headed home. I laid out all my material and started getting to work on putting everything together.

The first thing I did was measure out the burlap that I wanted to wrap around the vases.  I knew I wanted the larger vase to have a wider cut then the smaller vases so I kept that in mind.  I just wrapped the fabric around and marked where I needed it cut.  I made sure to leave a little extra because I used a straight pin to hold it in place.

Then I pulled out my wire cutters and snipped off pieces of garland to put in the vase.  Each vase got about 7 pieces.

After that was done I just began placing everything inside the vases.  I used flameless candles and a pencil to help me push things down.

I placed the berries inside and then the greenery. When that was finished I wrapped the burlap around and that was all.  Once I cut the pieces off of the garland it took me minutes to finish up.  They sit beautifully on my coffee table now!
