Taper Candle Centerpiece: Day 11

12 Days of Gifts Decor & RecipesIt is no secret I love candles, we covered that on Day 5. I found some incredible rustic white taper candles with a touch of sparkle and knew I had to create something with them. So, we have an easy centerpiece idea for Day 11!
Taper Candle Centerpiece in Terracotta PotThe Supplies:
Taper Candle Centerpiece SuppliesSmall terra-cotta pot, taper candle, white paint, snow spray, fine glitter and greens.
Not pictured: floral foam, vine wire, glue for glitter, clear sealer and additional greens.

The Steps:
Lay out the greens, dust them with a coat of snow spray and then a sprinkling of glitter.
Taper Candle Centerpiece Step 1While the greens are drying, paint the terra-cotta pot with white paint and allow to dry.
After the white paint is dry (it dries quickly), spray the terra-cotta pot with an adhesive (I like glue for glitter by Design Master) and dust the terra-cotta pot with glitter.
When the glue is dry lightly coat the outside of the pot with a clear sealer.

Press the taper candle down into the foam (I pressed it in until I hit the bottom).
Insert the greens into the floral foam.
I finished it off with a twist of rustic vine wire.Taper Candle Centerpiece Step 3Whether on the mantle or on the table this is an elegant centerpiece for the holidays.
I think I will make 3 for the center of my table!
