Easy DIY Holiday Centerpiece

I put together this centerpiece to bring some rustic charm to the table and hold items for different holidays. After creating the tiered stand, I needed something to add to it for Christmas, without spending a lot of money. I used items I already had on-hand to fill up my new centerpiece. This project fits my holiday design goals perfectly; I love to reuse items and create inexpensive decor for my home.

I made the tiered stand with three pie plates I found at the thrift store and an old spindle. I just cut the spindle down into smaller pieces, and then used hot glue to attach it all together.
To fill it up for Christmas, I decided to make some snow covered pine cones and twine balls. I used items I already had around my house including glue, water balloons (filled with air), jute twine, pine cones, white glitter, and faux snow.
I dipped the edges of the pine cones in the glue and then sprinkled them with the snow and glitter.
For the rustic twine balls, I dipped the jute twine in glue and then wrapped it around the balloon. I sprinkled some snow and glitter on them and then let them dry. After they dried completely, I popped the balloons and was left with a decorative filler for the tiered centerpiece.

I added some cuttings from our Christmas tree as filler, and my holiday centerpiece was complete. I think I'd like to add a touch of red with some berries, but for now, I still like the way it turned out. You can see the full tutorial by visiting the link at the end of this post.
