Home(made) for the Holidays
Simple and easy DIY projects to bring some glam to your holiday table
Candles flickering, casting a warm glow. The scent of cinnamon and cloves on the air. Sprigs of evergreen adding bright contrast.
Want to set an inviting table this holiday season—without splurging on expensive, store-bought floral arrangements? Why not take a more natural approach and try some of these easy to make DIY decorations to add color and warmth to your winter celebrations.
You will need:
1. Measure candle height; cut cinnamon sticks to size with floral shears (for a 3” diameter candle, you will need approximately 20 sticks).
Tabletop Poinsettia Kissing Ball
A cute twist on the traditional hanging “kissing ball,” this tabletop option is a colorful accent to your holiday home. Group several of them together on stands of varying heights for dramatic effect, or set them in shallow bowls with other filler such as colored glass or black river rocks.
How to make it:
1. Take craft paper and form a ball, roughly the size of a grapefruit or bocce ball, making sure to leave a space in the center for the florist vial (you can vary the size of your ball for dramatic effect as long as there is enough there to hold the water vial).
