Splash of Yellow Summer Table Candle Centerpiece!

Looking for ideas for summon centerpiece for perhaps wedding or special occasion or just everyday home display? Have a splash of yellow for this summer season! This centerpiece is crafted by using coffee stir sticks glue together to form this square unique looking shape of fence to section off the candle jar in the middle. You could go as far as staining the wooden stir sticks to a darker tone of color to make it more stand out before you put the arrangements together, but I was too lazy to do that. lol
As for the arrangement itself, I primary use sunflowers, with yellow daisies. With white wild flowers as fillers and purple wild flowers to bring out bit of contrast between the purple and the yellow. Add a few touches of orange berries to brighten it up even more and English ivy to fill the bottom of the arrangement. This arrangement is 10"x 15"x 6"tall. It certainly adds a huge splash of yellow to your summer indoor or out door enjoyment.

Peonies & Mums for your Spring Centerpiece display.

Spring is upon us finally! Soon all the beautiful Spring flowers will be blooming before you know it. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. They come in so many different colors, and they smell so lovely too. This is a table centerpiece I crafted for eBay. I mainly want to capture the beauty of Spring inside your own home on your table, to brighten up your home yet soothing at the same time.

This Spring flower candle centerpiece is done on a small wooden tray, with a couple of little wooden fence and small bird sitting on the fence. The primary flowers for this centerpiece are pink peonies and mums, along with ivy and clusters of small daisies as filler. This light color arrangement will certainly brighten up your home, but not over power at the same time. Soothing as the Spring.

Craft idea: Country Style Theme Table Centerpiece

Need a theme idea for a table centerpiece? How about a country style candle table centerpiece? This centerpiece I made has wooden fences that gives the country style flavor. The centerpiece is about 1 foot by 1 foot. It has a candle jar has the center focal point, right against 2 wooden fences that are made out of coffee stir sticks. On one of the long end of fence parks a bird, with another bird just below it resting in a bed of flowers. This centerpiece is surrounded by spring and summer flowers, where a lot of them are wild flowers to enhance the country style theme. The great thing about the candle jar is that it can re-use after the original candle being used up. You can put tealight in it, or voltive, or fill it with rock and water with a floating candle. The possibilities are endless!
