Seasonal Dollar Store Centerpiece
Use a simple white basin from the dollar store to create your own Christmas party centerpiece. This is a great way to keep your delicious treats fresh and tasty! This Seasonal Dollar Store Centerpiece from Candace Jedrowicz is whimsical and so easy to make.
- Aleene’s Tacky Dot Rolls
- Aleene’s Tacky Quick Dry Glue
- Aleene’s Tacky Tape Runner
- White basin – 12″ across the top
- Medium grit sand paper
- 24 gauge wire
- Glitter glue – I used clear
- Narrow garland – 9′ – I used a red rope garland
- Accent garland – 5′ – I used a plastic bell garland
- Greens – 8 small pieces – I used glittery green berries
- Ornament for the top handle – I chose a wire heart
- Turn the basin over and sand the outside to a matte finish.
- Drill two holes in the center to wire the ornament/handle to the basin. Wrap the wires together on the inside of the basin.
- Use a pencil to mark opposite edges, in half first, then quarters, then eighths.
- Place two Tacky Dots (one on the edge and one just below it). Attach the accent garland allowing it to drape between attachments.
- Cut off excess and attach the ends.
- Pick up one bell at a time to attach the red garland, draping just below the gold garland.
- Use the Tacky Tape Runner to hold the draped garland in place.
- Use Aleene’s Tacky Quick Dry Glue to fasten a double thickness of red garland in the rim of the basin.
- Use Aleene’s Tacky Dots to attach the greens to the top of the bells.
- Glue red garland around the top edges.
- I added swirls, stripes and dots of glitter glue to complete the iced cake look.
