Here’s a simple DIY steps for the centerpiece:
Winter Glass Vase Centerpiece
You will need 1 cylinder glass vase 15 1/2 inches tall, I used a 6 inches wide diameter one.
Crackled glass, sand or other filler for the bottom
1 sprig of a pip berry garland for color and texture
1 Evergreen branch
Decorative accents: Dreidels, pinecones or other ornaments as desired
Fill the bottom of your container with your filler. I used the crackled glass filler from Michael’s which is not very expensive and adds shimmer to the vase. I inserted the pine branches into the glass covering the bottom of the branch with the crackled glass, added a twisted sprig of a pip berry garland, and included a decorative glittery pine cone for a winter display. We made a similar vase using a dreidel for our Hanukkah display, so it’s quite a versatile centerpiece, for a unique and simple modern Holiday decor.
After the holidays, you can take out your decorations (dreidels/ornament, etc.) and add pinecones to have a beautiful, simple and elegant winter centerpiece. You can substitute the pine for branches as well.
