DIY Wedding Centrepieces on a Budget
A beautiful centrepiece doesn’t have to break the bank. A creative centerpiece can be both interesting and coordinate with the table setting. Combine your favourite things in order to pull off your own easy DIY centrepieces.
Start saving your wine bottles for a rustic candle holder. If the bottles are too dark, you can spray paint them ahead of time in the colour of your choosing.
Simple and elegant, twigs and floating candles in various-sized vases are simple to make and can be added to just about any theme.
If Gerber Daisies are a favourite, choose a few of your favourites and let them stand alone.
Mason jars are making a comeback in a big way. Use them with twine, ribbon, or use acrylic paint (on the inside) to create different colours of glass. Sprigs of babysbreath offer delicate romance and old-fashioned charm.
If you’re looking for the wow-factor with height, consider slender vases with hydrangea and any flowering branches you can get your hands on. The centrepiece below has wires around the stems of the hydrangea to hold tealights.
Fruit is a great way to add vibrant colour and an earthy feel to your centrepieces. Slice them up or use a combination of apples, pears, mangoes… all your favourites!
