I had to make some centerpieces for a small dinner last weekend and this is what I came up with. I thought that they looked festive without too much work!
I found this black fabric with gold glitter in the design, so I thought that I could just use the gourds and pumpkins leftover from Halloween. I used the gold Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint to paint them and then just simply tied ribbons and tulle on them. For the jars, I filled them up with black beans and put a battery votive candle down in the beans. Then I tied the jars with a pretty metallic gold ribbon…
And I think that they turned out pretty cute with out a lot of time or money! You could also put popcorn kernels, candy, rice, or just about anything in the jars to make your candles. I think I will have to use this idea again for Christmas, with red and green candies in the jar!
Do you have any fun, easy ways to decorate your tables? I would love to hear from you!
