We love this idea from Carolann Iadarola – anything with twinkly lights makes us smile! Read more from Carolann on her blog, Sassy Townhouse Living.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to create an elegant lighted floral centerpiece or arrangement. In fact, this centerpiece cost me about $22 All you need is a little creative energy and design away! I’m always in search of crafting projects that involve using lights especially battery operated lights as you can place them just about anywhere.
Create An Elegant Lighted Floral Centerpiece
It all started when my son gave me these beautiful roses. I knew I had to dry them and make something beautiful.
They turned into this after drying them out. I place a rubber band around the bottom of them, turn them upside down, and hang them someplace warm for a few days. I ended up with these.
Then I went to Big Lots and picked up these items. You can get them at Wal-Mart or any craft store. Any river rocks and LED lights will do. Look at how inexpensive they were!
I picked up two bunches of inexpensive artificial flowers in the colors of my choice, some river rocks, and the lights. I already had the vase so the rest was easy!
And this is what I created! I have to say how much I love it. It makes such a huge difference and adds warmth to my dining room when the lights are out.
Simple and inexpensive! Just the way I like it. Why pay for a designer centerpiece when you can create one of your own?
