DIY A Christmas Table Centerpiece
There are so many ways to style a table.
In order to DIY A Christmas table centerpiece that fits your style consider what particular decor you’ve admired the most when you look at centerpieces.
Is it pine?
How big is your table?
Do you want your centerpiece to really stay within the center of the table from end to end?
Or do you want your centerpiece to be grand and span a bit?
Is there a particular color scheme you want to work within?
Those are all the questions I asked myself before I began.
What Materials Might You Use: DIY A Christmas Table Centerpiece?
I definitely suggest a table runner.
When you notice the centerpiece it’s not just because of its design.
You’ll attract more eyeballs to the centerpiece if it is set unto itself, yet separated while being on the table.
In effect, a runner modifies space and defines the true center.
From that, you can actually decide how extreme to the right or left you to want the centerpiece to travel.
Also, you can use old napkin rings (if you want, and leftover Christmas Decor which will tie in nicely to all that you have.
Color and Flow Of the DIY Christmas Table Centerpiece.
There are no right or wrong centerpieces.
Look at the tablecloth color and the dishware.
Will your room be more relaxed or formal?
Do you love glitter or metallics?
Maybe you prefer tartan or buffalo plaid?
Whatever YOU love, and feel Christmas is, express when you DIY a Christmas Table Centerpiece.
Again, check the items in your storage and see what you have.
Then consider what I made.
Mesh the items together and you’ve got an incredible springboard to create your own.

How To DIY A Christmas Table Centerpiece
- Glue Gun
- Snips for wire
- Glue for Glue Gun
- 4 Dollar Tree Holiday Trees no base or stands take them off and toss them out $4
- Pine Bough Ties dollar stores, about a pack of 12 or a wire tie of some sort that can be cut
- Duct Tape
- 4 Large clip sparkle poinsettia leaves or whatever you want to attach $4
- 2 Packs of Ornaments 1 larger bulb size and one smaller bulb size $2
- Glue Gun
- Unbox the trees.
- Discard the base and the stands.
- Take 2 trees and lay them out lengthwise, opposing one another, so if they are a foot you should now have 2 feet in length. bough
- Find where the middle structure pole that holds the branches of the tree meets (obviously this should be right in the middle, slide them to match and overlap, at this point. (basically, where the base would have been attached you will be connecting one tree to the other here. )
- We are going to attach these 2 trees together to create a long bough of pine.
- The reason you are looking for the pole that holds them together and not a branch is that you will fasten and make them strong together so they are SNUG and don't move.
- Whereas if you tie 2 branches, this will not be solid.
- First, using wire, evergreen stems, or sparkle ties, fasten them together.
- I followed that with duct tape to keep them firmly secure.
- Now that you have done this, go ahead and repeat this for the other 2 trees.
- You should have 2 sets of bough now.
- Each will be 2 trees in length.
- Both pieces now need to be combined.
- To do this, you will leave the most narrow parts to the outside and work to join the fattest pieces in the center.
- In doing such, you will overlap the pieces, and secure to the support pole (it will be harder to do but NOT impossible)
- Once you grasp them together at the pole, use Duct Tape again to secure them firmly together.
- Follow with some pine ties to cover the duct tape
- If you don't have pine ties, no worries, you can cover this with a bulb on each side or big poinsettia clips, etc.
- Now, that these are all ONE piece, it is time to layout your design.
- Figure out where you will put your bulbs and where you will put your poinsettia leaves.
- Start with the poinsettia leaves.
- Affix them with appropriate spacing across the entire pine bough you have created.
- I used some sparkle picks I had laying around, but you don't have to.
- Then I moved on and added some bulbs. (the colors were those that matched my decor and runner.
- Remember the most narrow part of the tree will be at each end, one on the left side and one on the right.
- Look at this photo.
- In order to balance out the decor, I added some picks of berries also to add a POP of color.
- Fasten with floral wire, pipe cleaners, green tree bough pieces, or a glue gun (all your choice)
- Once you have all of your picks, bulbs, and larger items attached, place your runner on the table.
- Then place the Christmas table centerpiece on the runner.
- Adjust as necessary.
- That's it.
- You can always change anything on here year after year, it's inexpensive to update and it lets you change your look each year.
