25 Days of Christmas – DIY Wreath Centerpiece
Our coffee table in the living room needed a centerpiece for Christmas. I decided to create one with the candles we already have and some items I bought from Michael’s Arts and Crafts.
Fluff the wreath by pulling the twigs outward to make it look fuller.
Here are the supplies I used.
Wired Jumbo Ribbons (2 1/2 inch wide)
Fairy lights with wire
Candles that I’ve been using
There is not adhesive or any tie needed for this project.
Cut about two feet of the ribbons.
Create bows. I started with six bows but as I rearranged them I ended up using nine.
When making the bow, do not tighten. You will want a little room to adjust so you can tie it on a twig. Once tied, fluff the ribbons to give it volume. The ribbons have wires on the side and it can keep it’s shape when fluffing them.
Now you can arrange the fairy lights on the upper side. There is no need to string them thru the wreath. You can let the lights rest on the needles. There is a wire on these fairy lights, so I randomly wrapped the wire around the twigs an over the bows.
The fairy lights are powered by two AA batteries so I tucked the battery pack on the inside of the wreath and covered it with the twigs.
You might need something to elevate the candles depending on how tall your candles are. I am using this round metal serving dish.
I end up using only three of the candles.
Remember, never leave a burning candle unattended.
