DIY Centerpiece: Gold & Mint, Flowers & Pearls
Items needed to make this DIY centerpiece:Gold & Mint, Flowers & Pearls:
10 inch tall cylinder vase
8 inch tall cylinder vase
Metallic spray paint
Pearls connected on fishing line (can be purchased)
White orchid stem
Mint flower stem
Gold Bling Ribbon (2)
Mint Ribbon (1)
Dash stickers (square) – OASIS® UGlu™ Adhesive
Drink a bottle of wine! (Yes, this is probably the best part!) Then (maybe a different day) spray paint the wine bottle with a metallic spray paint. I’d recommend two coats just to make sure it is completely covered.
Attach gold bling ribbon to top of 10 inch vase. Attach mint ribbon and then gold ribbon on top/centered to 8 inch vase. Use the dash stickers or a double sided tape that will hold up against water. Add rocks to both vases.
Pull off a few flowers from the stem to use in other vase. Take the connected pearls piece and attach to the flower of your choice (mint flower in this example). I just tied the fishing line to the top of the flower and weaved it around the flowers. Place flower in the vase where pearls and prettiest flowers are pointing outward toward your guests. Fill the vase with water up to the ribbon line. Place on mirror.
Place the white orchid flower in the 8 inch vase. Try to make sure all the flowers are straightened out facing guests. Arrange as needed to get the prettiest view. Fill vase with water to the ribbon line. Flowers that you pulled off from stem – take them completely a part – provides additional petals to use. Drop all petals into vase (about 6-7). Use a knife or utensil to position the petals in the vase (if you would like). Place on mirror.
Use another string of pearls to place half into the gold wine bottle so that the rest dangle on the outside of the vase. Place on mirror. Place the three candles at the intersection of the vases/bottle. Be sure to pull them a little bit away from the vases/bottle because otherwise it will leave a carbon/smoke line going up the vase/bottle (if too close). All done!
