Rustic Christmas centerpiece

Christmas centerpiece

It’s really easy to make! 

What you need:

  • half a log approx. 10″ long and 4 1/2″ in diameter
  • pinecones
  • 3 – dollar store taper candles
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • misc. items such as pine branches, dried berries, greenery

Drill 3 holes in the top of the log for the candles to sit in.  Place the candles in the holes as you glue pinecones around the top of the log.  Add greenery or dried berries, etc, if desired.  You could add some glitter or spray snow to simulate frost.  It’s important to use new tall candles only as this centerpiece is flammable.  As always, never leave lit candles unattended.

Total cost:

  • 4 candles for $1
  • package of glue sticks for $1
  • Pinecones and log – free

Total cost – $2
