Easy & Elegant Holiday Centerpiece

Elegant Holiday Centerpiece

I’m not much of a whiz when it comes to DIY décor, and my home style is fairly modern, so I’m always looking for on trend décor ideas that don’t require a lot of time or skill to put together.. (and will not clutter up my house!) A few weeks ago a friend and I were out having dinner and we spotted the most GORGEOUS Holiday Centerpiece. I made it my mission to re- create it with the most inexpensive components I could find! The best thing about this centerpiece is you may already have several of the necessary elements- gold Christmas ornaments or mini lights in particular! Use what you have at home if you can!!


What you Need:

  1. Vase: The geometric one above was $30 At Homesense, but you can easily use a regular clear glass vase if you have one at home, or pick up one like this clear glass option from CB2 http://www.cb2.com/taylor-bud-vase/s115168
  2. Starry String lights: I found these on sale at Restoration Hardware, but you can find similar at Indigo, ON SALE! https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/house-and-home/gifts/silver-string-led-30-light/037916369013-item.html?ikwid=lights&ikwsec=Home&ikwidx=0
  3. Sequin/ Bead Gold  Ornaments: I Got mine on sale at Indigo last year after christmas, but Similar ones are now at a reduced price at Canadian Tire http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/canvas-gold-chunky-glitter-ball-ornament-800-mm-1514757p.html#srp
  4. Metallic Gold Ornaments: I found mine on sale after Christmas at Restoration Hardware, but Similar ones are available at Canadian tire! http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/holiday-collections-gold-ball-ornament-set-assorted-25-pk-1511411p.html#
  5. Rose Gold Geometric Ornaments: I bought these at Super Store last week and removed the small white ball from inside the frame. You still might be able to find at some locations! Alternatively, CB2 has them online http://www.cb2.com/boxes-gold-ornament/s258962?&a=0&source=igodigital&_=1482179747282

Start by layering the various ornaments in the vase, mixing up the metallic with the sequin/ beaded, and using different sizes and shapes to vary the textures. Be careful not to put too many ornaments in.. less is more! Next, add in your string lights winding them around the ornaments as best you can, so that the ornaments catch the light! You really cannot make it look bad (good news for me! )

Here is a close up of the finished product! My sequin/ beaded ornaments were quite large so I only used two.

You could also try the same thing using a different color scheme like silver or red (I just have a gold obsession, so that’s what I went with!)

Happy DIY-ing!
