The holidays are fast approaching and I am here today with a super simple snow and cranberries holiday centerpiece that you can put together in just minutes. Grab a few supplies from your local Old Time Pottery to make this festive addition to your holiday table.
To make your own snow and cranberries holiday centerpiece you will need:
- Clear glass vases (various sizes work best and you can find a variety of shapes at Old Time Pottery)
- Epsom salts (just from your local pharmacy or big box store)
- Decoart Glamour Dust in Ice Crystal
- Faux cranberries or red berry bushes (mine came from Old Time Pottery and I used 3 bunches)
- Faux sticks (mine came from Old Time Potter and I used 2 bunches)
- Paint brush
- Scissors or wire cutters
Begin by filling your containers each with a few inches of Epsom salts. This is a great way to replicate glistening snow in any of your home décor.
Start snipping off clusters of red berries and adding them to your containers. Just nestle the berries inside. No glue or adhesive is needed on this project.
Cut or break your branches to the appropriate height for your centerpiece and place them into the container.
The Epsom salts will actually keep them standing upright. Work with your berries and branches until you love the look of your containers.
Now if you want a little glisten to your holiday centerpiece you can touch the ends or various spots on the branches with a little glitter paint. I think this makes the centerpiece extra special but it is something that was very difficult to capture on camera. You might want to play around with the paint for yourself.
Add your centerpiece to the center of your table and you are ready for holiday guests. After your dinner party, you can remove all of the elements of this centerpiece and still be left with some lovely clear glass vases that can be used season after season. I love holiday décor that is not permanent. Pick up your vases at Old Time Pottery and get started on this snow and cranberries holiday centerpiece today.
