Do you ever have the simplest of things bring you the most joy? That is what this easy DIY Christmas centerpiece did for me. Every season I whine about not having a stand alone dining room, not because we would actually use one very much. I just dislike having the challenge of coming up with a sensible yet pretty centerpiece for Christmas. This year I am really happy with this small neutral DIY Christmas centerpiece I made for our kitchen table.

How to Make a DIY Christmas Centerpiece
This Christmas centerpiece is so easy to make it doesn’t really need a tutorial. Instead of spending lots of time on the obvious steps I thought I would talk about alternative supplies you could look for in your stash. Pretty is great, but this time of year pretty for as cheap as possible is even better.
For the base I had a galvanized and a white plate charger, other ideas a plain wood box, a wood slice, a round platter, I think you could even create it on a cutting board.
Next I used a simple garland of greenery and wrapped it around the plate charger. A plain greenery wreath would be easier, or little bunches of greenery, fresh holly.
The two vintage mason jars are my favorite part, any jars work but I personally wouldn’t use vases or candlesticks as the mason jars make it kitchen themed.
Remove the lids from the jars, wrap them in white wool or twine and tie in a pretty bow. Fill the larger of the jars half full of water. I chose not to add any water to the small jar.
Unfortunately for me I couldn’t find our long battery charged lighter, and its snowing and too cold for me to check the bbq this time of year. Instead I used a pair of tongs and prelit the candles before placing them in the jars. The lighter would have been easier but the tongs worked.
This simple centerpiece is really pretty, I am a bit startled with how much I enjoy it. If you make one please let me know, I would love to hear about it.
