I was looking for a new centerpiece for my Dining Room and thought I could create something for pretty cheap. How cheap? How about Dollar Store cheap.
I purchased my supplies:
- 3 low glass vases
- 2 bags of white rocks
- 3 bouquets of flowers (two pink, one white)
I poured some of the white rocks into each vase. You should only need about 2/3 of each bag of rocks to fill each vase.
Next I trimmed the stems of the plastic flowers to about the same height of the vase… just enough so only the flower would pop out. I stuck the flowers one by one into the vases, filling pretty full so the flowers were dense.
Pretty cute, huh?
So basically I created these three flower vases for $8 total.
Not too shabby for a brand new Dining Room centerpiece, right?
Wanna better tour of my Dining Room?
It’s a work in progress, but you can get the most recent tour here!
