Entry #3: DIY Centerpiece
Brandi created these gorgeous centerpieces using toilet paper rolls! I could never looking at the final product image:
Step 1: Spray paint the bottom of a clay pot black, or whatever color you choose. Once dry paint the top portion a difference color.
Step 2: Collect branches to put in your pots. I just cut branches from a tree in our yard and used one large branch per pot.
Step 3: Fill the pot with rocks to help secure the tree branch.
To create the toilet paper ornaments:
Step 1: Cut a swatch of fabric that will cover the toilet paper roll. Don’t worry about getting all the way to the top and bottom because your accessories will cover it.
Step 2: Once you have the fabric on the roll, punch two small holes in the top of the roll, one on each side. Then thread wire or string thru the holes to create a way to hang it.
Step 3: Glue beads to the bottom of the roll.
Step 4: Glue a small boa to the top.
For the gems:
Step 1: Collect gems with holes in the top to hang from your branches. I purchased my gems from Michaels and then thread clear wire or string through them.
Step 2: Glue orchids randomly on the branches.
Step 3: Finally, fill the pot with flowers to cover the rocks.
