I always see nice tabletop decorations but refuse to spend an arm and a leg on a piece that won't sit out but a month. I wanted something festive and sparkly for the dining table and decided I can make my own.
I grabbed some garland from the dollar store and rolled up some poster board to make my own tree forms. Using hot glue, I started at the top and rolled the garland around the sides, gluing every couple inches.
Now I have three trees for cheap. The blue and silver one is my favorite.
I set them on the dining table. Here are the silver ones.
And the blue and silver one on the other end.
I mixed some red along with the blue in my table to pull the colors from the rest of the downstairs. I grabbed the blue chargers in Michaels last week. The centerpiece is a glass vase with silver and blue balls. A small wreath with red berries sits at the base. I kept the smaller vases and candles on the sides.
There are more tweaks I want to make to the table but this has got me started.
Have you set your Christmas table yet?
