Recycled Greeting Card Centerpiece
Don’t let beautiful greeting cards go to waste! Create pretty greeting card balls that can be placed in a bowl as a unique centerpiece or hung from a dining room chandelier for magical dining room décor. Add your own special details like family photos or candy stashed inside and let guests take one with them when they head home as a remembrance.
Old greeting cards
Drinking glass with a 2” diameter (for a smaller ball trace a 1” diameter circle)
Flat cardboard or cardstock (not corrugated)
Pencil with eraser
Hole punch (optional)
Ribbon or thread (optional)
Tip: If you plan to incorporate family photos, simply print on photo quality card stock and follow the same steps as you would with your greeting cards.
Tip: To add candy, leave an opening large enough to fit a few small pieces or one large piece and insert inside before gluing your final greeting card circles together.
Wish Tree Create a beautiful centerpiece for your next holiday celebration using a Natural Sculpture Arrangement as the tree base. Reuse greeting cards by cutting into small squares and hole punching at the top so your guests can write down and share wishes and goals they’d like to accomplish this winter holiday season and in the year to come. Attach the wishes to the tree with ribbon or small clips for meaningful table décor.
If you plan to attach clips to the branches of your Wish Tree, use a little bit of hot glue to adhere the clips or simply attach to the tips where the branches are slender.
Personalized Painted Plates
Add a personal detail to simple white plates by painting family initials or names on each one and baking in the oven.
White porcelain plates
Porcelain paint, clear (used as the varnish)
Porcelain outline pen, fine point
Paintbrush, fine point
Letter stencils (optional)
Tip: Using a dark, solid color such as black or deep purple, will provide an elegant contrast with the white plate. However, you can feel free to experiment with bright festive colors as well.
