I may be jumping the gun here a little bit but I’m way too excited! So the first picture I fell in love with and wanted my centerpiece the same way except with red flowers. After spending the last week, countless hours online and finding I couldnt find black holders I like and that were under $40 a piece I started to search on how to make them. Off to HomeDepot we went and got supplies. As we speak the Fiance is putting it together since the paint has dried. Heres the current picture i have and i will keep updating this as this DIY adventure goes along and i will post the total cost breakdown once we get rolling. So far though its looking like its going to be under $20 a centerpiece with everything. Even better!

We did a few changes to it. We drilled a hole in the top of the DIY candlestick and put in a 8 inch long dowl rod so it would hold the ball steady. Found that works so much better then using epoxy or velcro.

Wow..that’s really pretty and looks great. I don’t think anyone would be able to tell its homemade. kudos for being inventive and smart about your centerpieces.
