The centerpiece is a wonderful focal point of any holiday table. And your fabulous focal point doesn’t have to be expensive and complicated to be beautiful. With everything that you have to do over the holidays, it’s nice to be able to save time and money on a few things. To inspire you, I’ve found some simple Christmas centerpiece ideas to share with you on this Tabletop Tuesday…which is on Thursday due to a scheduling snafu. The holiday table decor ideas featured are quick, easy and inexpensive. My favorite kind of project!
Christmas Centerpiece Ideas
Your holiday table will stand out with one of these festive ideas!
The evergreen candles on the top right are so easy to make. Spray adhesive on one side of a flat piece of greenery and press it firmly on the OUTSIDE of the glass. Trim off loose ends as needed.
If you can cut paper, you can have fun creating the winter forest in the top right photo.

Wrap small empty boxes and adorn them with fun embellishments like pompons and sequins. Then place them on top of tall candleholders intended for pillar candles, as shown in top left photo.

Apply thin coats of metallic spray paint to ordinary pinecones before placing them
atop silver candleholders, as shown in the bottom right photo.
Make your own sparkly, “snow-covered” candles as shown in the top right photo.
First coat plain candles in Mod Podge, then roll them in epsom salt.
Display them in a tray filled with more epsom salt.
The paper cone trees in the bottom left photo would add color and a touch of whimsy to any holiday table. Cut and fold holiday craft paper into cones; then adhere the sides with clear tape. A quick and easy project for the whole family!
To create the holiday scene in the bottom right photo, place small glass cylinders into larger ones. Sprinkle fake snow in between them and add a sprig of greenery for color. Place a pillar candle into the small cylinders.
