Beautiful at any occasion.
I saw a tree centerpiece project on the DIY website and decided I could do my own. These are my results, I hope you guys like them!
Also, I left the candles burn all night! I thought it risky to put a flame close to a spray painted branch, but as it turns out the flame isnt hot enough or nearly close enough to cause a fire. Just be sure to glue the candles in the right spots.
If you want to cut down cost than you dont have to use spray paint. Go with a more natural look.
13 @ 4x$5 (15+1.77) = 16.77
Spray paint (Cheapest brand)
1 black/ 2 white = $3
All together about $8+

Stuff your pots with newspaper but try not to let the newspaper go past the rim.
The way I did it was I crumbled four balls and stuffed them in the pot so that there was a small whole in the center. That whole is what I used to put the "tree" in.
Using newspaper is what worked best for me. It helps the tree stand straight and tall and keeps the centerpiece light weight and easier to transport.
Tea lights for the trees.
Cut two pieces of string the same size. Fold the 1st string in half and glue one end to one side of the tea light, and the other end on the opposite side. Do the same with the 2nd string.
Once the hanging strings are glued, than glue a decorative ribbon around the tea light to hide the glue marks.
