Frugal Friday: Up-Cycle, Multi-Purpose Materials for Holiday Centerpiece
We know December gets ridiculously busy
Today? One of the funnest & easiest centerpieces we’ve created to date
We put this together for a Feature on Recycled Christmas Cards but TODAY are focusing on the Main Elements that tie this together, those items you have around the house all year that can do double or triple design duty.
1. A Mirror. Lay flat on your table & use as a center tray.
2. Candle with glass hurricane
4. A basket or beanie or soft hat anywhere?
Yes, you heard me correctly. Turn an old beanie upside down, fill it with shredded paper (Colorful Christmas Cards) & plop your silverware in! It is now a Custom Caddy ;).
Here we used another product from Ikea. These are soft storage & come in assorted sizes.
3. Any old carpet pieces or carpet squares?
I simply LOVE carpet squares
Whenever showrooms are done for the season, I ask for samples. We use them as table runners constantly. Cheap, colorful, often textural – they make great contemporary table settings.
YOU now have a custom centerpiece my friend!
Shred strong colorful cards. Throw in metallics.
Trim carpet squares to fit the center of your table. Mine is super wide. Attach with pro quality carpet square adhesive squares
This mirror is a discount closeout from Marshalls. I bought four and line them end to end for big parties. We also use matching shell picture frames as mini servers.
I love Frugal Friday. It’s my confessional time ;).
We will consolidate our Blog’s Holiday Tip Page with more pictures on December 4th so be SURE to let us know if you have questions or comments!
