Table Centerpiece

9 Materials
2 Hours

I love how this table centerpiece turned out. This flower center piece is designed for bottles that are 7 1/2" tall. We bought Fever-Tree premium ginger ale drink and used the empty bottles for this project. I burned the wood using propane torch to give it that texture look and than stained it with Minwax gray color. I used the same burning method to make our king size headboard shelves.

Step-1 Burning Wood with Torch

Take 1x4 board and using the Propane Torch burn the wood until its completely black. Once the wood in burned on both sides, take Drill with Nyalox Flap Brushe and take off the burnt top layer. If you prefer the wood to look lighter than brush more layers.

Step-2 Cutting Boards

Now cut the boards at 45 degrees to provided dimensions in the cut list. Also, cut a board that's 22 1/2" long and rip it at 45 degrees so that bottom is 3" wide. This board is for the bottles to sit on.

    A beautiful centerpiece you have created. Something that can be made as long as you want depending on the size of your table. Paint it or stain it and sit back and admire it. The nice thing is that depending on the season, flowers can be changed. A job well done.

      Thanks. Yes you could definitely make it longer or taller and almost any flower will look good in this piece.
