Hello! I’m excited to help you create a beautiful Christmas floral tray centerpiece. This craft is perfect for beginners and is simple to create. Most of the materials you’ll need can be found at your local Dollar Tree store.

Materials such as faux floral, red tray, hot glue, and reindeer

To create a Christmas floral tray centerpiece, you will need the following materials:

  • 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 (You can purchase this at Walmart or Dollar Tree)
  • Floral (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

Begin by 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, 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, flip your tray over and begin to apply a generous amount of hot glue to the bottom side of the tray. This will secure everything 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. I eventually 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.

DIY Upcycled Sesame Oil Glass Bottle Design

Hello everyone! I hope that all is going well. I've been busy with mom things, and also creating new crafts for all of you. After using the last bit of my sesame oil, I decided I would reuse the glass jar. I love how this jar has a few detailed lines.  This craft cost me around $2, and that was just for my floral sticker pack.  All other materials I already had on hand. Materials needed Chalk Paint  I'm using the colors celery and mineral  Craft gems Paintbrush One faux vine Hot glue A few floral stickers Start by taking your empty jar, and pre-washing it. I added my jar to my dishwasher so that it could remove any sesame oil scent that was left inside the jar. After you have washed your glass bottle, and it has dried, take your paintbrush, and apply a few coats of your main color. The color I am using is called celery. You will need to apply around three coats of paint to the glass surface. Once you have added a few coats of paint, allow it to completely dry.  Once dry, take y
