  • DIY Centerpiece Must-Haves

    When it comes to DIY centerpieces, you have the world at your fingertips. You can use a variety of supplies, colors, images, and let your creative juices flow. In order to successfully engage in such a project though, you do need to have the right basic supplies on hand. When you have a vision in mind, the last thing you want is to have to change it due to no access to those items you really need to make it materialize.

    A great pair of scissors that you use only for the centerpieces is a good idea. They should be sharp so that you can use them to cut through a variety of types of materials. You also need to have pliers so that you can pinch off ends without leaving a ragged edge to them. Vases of different shapes and heights allow you to have a great base for your DIY centerpieces. In addition to vases, you can use old mason jars or unique looking bottles.

    Different colored rocks, stones, pebbles, and sand can all be great supplies to have on hand. They can help you to create a centerpiece with a certain theme or color scheme for any occasion. These items can be placed at the bottom of the vase you plan to use for the arrangement. Different colors of ribbon should also be in your tool kit. You can use the scissors to curl them for a nice design or you can make a lovely bow.

    A hot glue gun can be one of those magic items that work very well for creating centerpieces. In just a few minutes, the glue will be hot and it will be dispersed in the right amount. You control that amount based on the pressure you put on the rigger. This can speed up the project and it can also help it to look very professional. Plus, you aren’t going to have to worry about the decorations falling off while the centerpiece is on display.

    It isn’t hard to take a centerpiece from day time use to a romantic dinner tone either. You can add some flameless candles that look very real. They never get hot and they aren’t a risk as the flame isn’t real. They don’t leave wax all over the table either. They can be used again and again so they are a great investment.

    To help you keep all of these great supplies at hand, get a cart with wheels and put the items in there. Then you will always be able to reach for the supplies you need at any time. It will also allow you to keep a better inventory of what you have when you need to replenish supplies.
