Easy Dollar Tree Christmas Floral Tray Centerpiece

Hi everyone! I am so happy to have you here. I'm excited to start working on more crafts, and of course, decorate for this holiday season.  Today we are going to create a Christmas floral tray centerpiece.  This craft is great for any beginner, and it is so simple to create. Most of my materials are from my local Dollar tree. If you are ready, let's dive in and create. 

Materials needed:

One rectangle tray
(The Dollar Tree has these labeled as Charger plates)

One foam block 1.9 in x 3.9 in x 11.9 in
(I purchased mine at Walmart, but Dollar tree has them as well)

( I  used about six bunches of holiday floral. A mix between floral, and glitter pinecones)

One frosted candle holder

One mini tealight Led battery operated candle

Variety of ornaments - You can use any for your design
(I am using one reindeer, and one Church ornament) 

Hot glue

Wire cutters

Creating the centerpiece

Start with taking your floral, and wire cutters.  Use your wire cutters to cut your floral, and pinecones. When cutting you will want to leave some of the stems. Once you have your floral cut, you can start adding them to your foam block. Gently push your stem through the foam block. Be sure you work your way around the front, sides, and back of the block.  Leave the top of the block clear of any flowers, and pinecones. 

Once you have completely filled the foam block with your floral, take your tray, and flip it over. 
As your tray is flipped over, you will want to take your hot glue, and apply some glue to the bottom side of the tray. Apply a generous amount. This will help keep everything secure when put together. 

After you have applied your hot glue, flip your tray over, and press it down over the top section of the foam block. When I first attempted this project, I started with the tray, and foam glued together. Eventually, I separated the two and decided to add my floral onto my foam block before gluing my tray to my foam block. It made things easier for me. 

Decorating your Tray

After gluing your tray to your block you can now add your decorations. I went ahead and applied a small amount of hot glue on the bottom of each ornament.  Next, take your candleholder, and add your Led candle to your candleholder.  You can also add a small bow to your candleholder. This is completely optional.

You're all done! I placed my centerpiece on my dining table, and it looks lovely.  I hope that you have enjoyed this simple DIY project. Thank you so much for stopping by.
