All this time i was not very happy with our dining table centerpiece. Yes, i liked it, but i was not excited. I had there the ribbon christmas tree i made and some other stuff but i had to make something to make it perfect (for my taste at least) ! I do not like having lots of things on my tables as decorations. I want two maybe three to each one, no more. So, since we have a big dining table and the tree i had there was not big enough i had to make something to cover the blank!
My inspiration came from small plastic bottles ( i really like an orengeade lately that comes in those bottles). I also needed something to use as a base for our dining table centerpiece. So i used a plastic tray, the ones we use under flower pots to keep the water in. These two were the base for my project.
I cut the top of the bottles, sanded them a bit and removed the labels… After that i glued paper, in various sizes, on the bottom of them. I wanted them to have three different heights.
Got some red ribbon and started covering the bottles. I glued the ribbon using white glue. I made various designs with it. On two of the bottles i added a piece of black leather i had ( i can not remember where they came from though!).
Here are some of the finished bottles…
To fill the bottles (apart from screws to make them heavier) i used some plastic branches. I “stole” a wreath i found at my parents house and now it was time to make something out of it! I made it into pieces and kept the branches and the metallic base (it will come in handy some day).
I spray painted the branches glossy black and used two of them in each bottle and tied them together with wire, which i made a little long to use it to support the branches in the bottle.
I spray painted the plastic tray glossy black and glued red ribbon around it, to break up all that black of the tray and the table. I used nine bottles in total. I made three groups of three of them in the tray. Tied them together with black ribbon and added something sparkly to that one in the end.
I really like how it turned out and how well the branches look with the chairs and the toilet paper rolls on the wall.
Here is our dining table corner. Complete!
I love it!
