Quick and Easy Spring Centerpiece





IMG_1455

I grabbed a couple of glass items, some moss I found on sale at Wal-Mart for $1 per bag, and some candles that were lying around (the little pillar I took from the candle holder I showed you here).

I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the pillar candles and wove the same ribbon through a wooden placemat (thanks Brooke – great idea!)

IMG_1451 I think I need a ribbon strip on each side of center as well. And maybe another touch of ivory. Or just a plain white taper instead of the ivory one.

Ok, so not particularly creative, but it was EASY. And it looks good enough for now, until I’m motivated to do a better one. All three of those glass items came from Goodwill, so it was also CHEAP. Cheap and easy, that’s my motto (for decorating….!)

;)


EDIT! More ribbon was added!

MUCH better.

Have a great day!

  1. Hey, that looks great. I think you do have the same placemat as I do. Ya, I think you should put ribbon through it on the sides too. Then you could see it more. Turned out cute. Cheap and easy, right.
