home: made [ Christmas centre pieces ]

Make a Christmas table beautiful with the perfect centre piece. We’ve scoured the internet for ideas but the common theme is knowing you can use things from around the house or easy to obtain, to create one.

Gather old bottles, jars or a wooden box; use off cuts of tree, forage some holy or conifer branches; find ribbon, washi tape or torn paper found at home; use old paint samples or spray paint; find pebbles or stones; plus hand write or print festive text or guests names.
