Multiple Swiss Gingerbread Houses Stack – Centerpiece
This is such a great idea for your deck or patio and would make a real impact for table centerpieces. Pots can be painted any color and add a ribbon to match colors of flowers.
Start with a pot six inches larger then the one on the middle and make sure the one in the middle is big enough to have the flute fit inside the edge of the pot.
If you are going to use these for a festivity like a wedding (paint white, silver,wedding color). You will trim it out later with a bow to coordinate.
Fill the larger pot with garden topsoil to the point that if you put the smaller pot inside the edges meet all the way across. With the smaller pot inside nestled on the top soil add top soil to the outer pot and add pea gravel or sand to the middle pot.
Plant small plants in the rim with garden soil such as pansies or you could even use succulents.
Place votive candle center of the middle pot and add flute. Add a ribbon or paint decorative designs on outside of pot.
Small pots are not that expensive and candle flutes can sometimes be found at a dollar store. Make several for a wedding and give them away to guests that you wish to acknowledge. It will be a special gift they will enjoy.
With the simple turning of a wine glass filled with Easter grass and foil cover chocolate eggs you can make a dazzling candle display for a table centerpiece or to place amongst food dishes. Different colored Easter grass could be used for both for a vibrant festive table or use natural twine colored Easter grass for a more natural look.
Nothing says ‘I Love You’ more than the quick way of expressing it with an X and O for a hug and kiss. These door wreaths would work for a Valentines Day decoration or for a Wedding Decoration. The X is done freehand with with berry branches (faux) and the O is done using a wire formation available at any craft store. They are both backed with a four inch ribbon and bow at the top to hang. These can be made large or small which gives some diversity to use on walls, door or as tale decorations or centerpieces.
What a wonderful creation that would make great candle holders. Even making enough for a little take home keepsake for each of your guests would not be costly and be very unique. You will need eight wrapped candy canes. Start with two and continue hot gluing each as you go along. You will not need a lot of glue and low setting is just fine. When you get about half way through you will need to keep the candle in place as well so it will all look just right when you finish off with the eighth candy cane. Finish with a ribbon and bow. You could also make smaller versions of these with just four candy canes and use them as name tag holders. Make sure the ‘hook’ of the candy canes stay on a flat surface to make sure your end product can stand on its own. This will be such a great addition to your Christmas party and everyone will really enjoy them.
