With Christmas being over, it was time to come up with a new centerpiece for our table. Today, I'm going to show you our winter centerpiece.
Isn't it pretty and wintry? I LOVE the way it turned out. I know that lots of people go from Christmas to decorating for Valentine's day. We don't do that. We usually don't do anything Valentine until February 1st. Then, because our anniversary is at the end of February, I usually leave all the heartsy, cutesy stuff up until the end of February.
The centerpiece is made from wine bottles and Epsom salt.
I have a tutorial for you on Friday.
I found the glittery ornaments on clearance after Christmas.
I also found the silver branches on clearance after Christmas.
It was one large branch that Mr. T cut up for me with wire cutters.
I tried to cut it up, but I apparently have wimpy hands and he has gorilla strength hands.
I love how these branches look...wait until you see it at night.
I'll show you how I made the beautiful bottles on Friday. They were very easy.
So easy, in fact, I made them during one of my 30 hours of continuing education credits I managed to cram into the holiday season...ahh procrastination...ain't it fun!
Can you see the glitter and sparkle in the bottles?
To me it makes the table look so sparkly and wintry.
A lit up at night.
Even more sparkle and glitter.
It was Pumpkin's idea to add the Epsom salt to the bottom of the tray.
I think I have a mini designer on my hands!
My absolute favorite shot I took. I got a new lens and had fun trying things out for this post!
I will be back here on with a tutorial on making the bottles. You can now see the tutorial HERE.
