Easy Ideas for Christmas Centerpieces

One of my favorite boards to pin to on Pinterest is “DIY.” When scrolling through these ingenious ideas, I always seek out the ones that look fairly easy. Unfortunately, I have come to find out these projects are probably elementary-level to almost anyone – with the exception of moi.

All of my whole-hearted attempts seem to end in a defeated call to Sista who then whips out her glue gun, a shoebox, and some watercolors only to end up with a DIY Project worthy of some upscale designer boutique. She then sends me a text with a picture and as I fawn over her latest creation, she tells me it is merely my “interpretation” that fell short.

This is one of my favorites…
Pottery Barn
Sista and #2 love mercury glass.  Great touch to any table. 
Love pistachios, I’ve got the tarnished candle sticks holders, but not sure I could figure out how to put the whole thing together.
So simple and elegant.
This goes under the “why didn’t I think of that?” category.
How pretty these would look around the table!
Southern Living.com
 Do I have enough patience to put this sweet arrangement together?  Probably not.

Looks fairly easy.
I think I could pull this off… but then again…
So clever and cute.
Two words: rustic elegance.
Three words:
rustic elegance again. 
Love the simplicity of this. 
Great looking vignette – the only part I could pull off is the ornaments in the tray.
 Great idea… but for some reason my paper whites never bloom in time. Shocker!
Looks fairly easy; may try this next year after I build up my confidence a year attempting to glue candy canes together.
What an elegant touch for every table setting.
I’m pretty sure I could pull this off, and I’m almost sure of it if Sista helped!
I’m going to be out of commission for the next couple of weeks. 
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of you who take the time to read my blog, to those who comment: a very special thanks, and to the wonderful fellow bloggers that have included me on their blogroll: I cannot tell you how much that means to me. 
Although I have not had the pleasure of meeting most of you in person, I am so touched by your warmth and generosity.
I wish y’all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, healthy, New Year.
One more thing… as my dear departed Mother used to always remind me to say to my school mates and teachers on the last day of school before Christmas break…
See you next year!!!
gonna miss you!

  1. Hope “out of commission” means celebrating like crazy and not something unpleasant and health-related. I hope you, the Mister, and your girls have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Just catching up with all your fabulous ideas … where to start! We are celebrating simply this year. In light of all that has happened in our state, this Christmas has taken on a new meaning.

    Wishing you and your family a joyous Christmas and best wishes in the new year.
