Floral + Clementine Centerpieces & Gold Votives

It's been a whirlwind few months, but I've finally picked back up on some DIY projects just in time for the holidays. I'll be sharing them over the next few days in case you're in the market for some last minute Christmas ideas. (Please excuse the iPhone photos!)

I bought these glasses from Target's front $1 section that gets me every time. I wanted something small so that each female in my family (there are a lot of us) could take one home with her. To assemble, I just wrapped the baby-leafy-clementines around the glasses with pipe cleaners and cut the flower stems very short.

For the votives, I also found these glasses at Target (they may have been closer to $3, oh my!), taped them up a few different ways, and spray painted them gold. Partly because the surface is curved and partly because I am lazy and didn't reaaaaaally stick the tape down, the spray paint leaked through a bit, but I kind of liked that look and just cleaned up stray spots with nail polish remover on a q-tip. Add a tea light and you're good to go!

I think these would be a really pretty contribution to a Christmas dinner, but with red and white flowers, of course. I know the ladies in my family really loved taking these home, too! Maybe throw on a handmade name tag and bring 'em to your next holiday gathering.

  1. In every home there are times of special occasions and at such times it becomes necessary that the decoration should be at its best, so that it can be liked by all the guest that are invited in the party. Whenever I have to plan for any occasion one of the things that I keep more interest is in choosing the flowers bouquet for the occasion. Whether you are going to celebrate a birthday party, get together, thanks giving party, New Year eve, Christmas party etc you will need flowers in the party to make the environment and the décor pleasant for all. You can use flowers bouquets on the tables as centerpiece. The flowers of different colours and the candle in the glass are really eye-catching. When it was the New Year party at my home I send invitations to all with flower bouquets and invitation card. Everyone liked the idea of invitation with flowers. I had also used flowers on the table for decoration purpose and this was the reason the tables were looking stunning with flowers and candles at night. There are varieties of flowers bouquet available in market. You can get further information regarding flower bouquet here at http://postalflowers.ie/
