I know, I know.. it's only October! But, this year is weird, and sad, and kind of messy. So, if Christmas decor makes you happy, I vote to put it up early! I certainly am! So, I decided that I needed a new centerpiece for my breakfast nook! I had some grapevine wreaths laying around, so I got to work!
Christmas Centerpiece Wreath
You'll need a grapevine wreath, some scissors, and wire! I also suggest putting down a tablecloth, because as you can see, my project was shedding a lot of glitter!
I had some ribbon and Christmas stems from years past laying around, so I decided to recycle those, and add it to the new stems I purchased for this project.
I purchased a long, green frosted garland for this project. The first thing I did, was cut it up and wire the pieces onto the grapevine wreath to create my base. I knew I wanted this wreath to be nice and full, so I placed each piece carefully.
Once you're finished with step one, your wreath should look something like this! I went back through and added greenery where it looked a little scarce, and I was ready to move on!
I did similar steps to piece in the white stems. These were old Christmas stems i have had in my basement, so I also cut these up and placed them around my wreath to look full. I then wired them in place. I then grabbed this cute polar bear ornament and needed to come up with a way to attach him to the wreath.
I was able to wore the bear to the wreath using his little hook. He now sits nicely in front of the wreath, without me worrying about my cat getting to him!
I felt like this piece needed a pop of color. I grabbed my newly purchased blue stems and added them generously throughout the wreath. With these, o was able to stick them through the grapevine without needed to wire them on.
My mom collected pinecone for me on her morning walk because she knew I was making this wreath! I then hot glued these guys into my wreath.
I decided that it needed just a little but more, so I convinced my mom to make a bow for me! (Unfortunately, I cannot share those steps with you because every time I try to recreate her bows, I fail!) I wired this bow into place and I knew I was done!
For the final look, I added a glass cylinder and a candle! I think this is the perfect DIY for a quick, cheap, and beautiful Christmas centerpiece!
