Create a winter wonderland centerpiece for your January celebration. Whether for an anniversary, wedding or dinner party, your centerpiece is sure to draw attention. Learn to create centerpieces with natural materials you find outside. Or make a centerpiece with materials you currently have, possibly from a craft store, general merchandise store or a dollar store.
Use a medium-size glass bowl or fish bowl and place cranberries inside approximately 2/3 full. Place a white or ivory candle in the center of the cranberries.
Spray-paint a wreath or seven to eight medium-size pine cones silver, gold or white. Place a large white pillar candle inside a candle holder. Place the pine cones around the candle. Or hot-glue the pine cones to a wreath and place the candle and holder in the center.
Purchase seven to eight large arts-and-crafts white snowflakes. Spray-paint the snowflakes silver or leave them white. Place a large circular mirror in the center of the table. Set a medium-size glass bowl in the center of the mirror. Fill the bowl with water, then place three white floating candles inside the bowl. To finish, place the snowflakes on top of the mirror in a circular fashion, surrounding the bowl.
Place six triangle votives side by side in a circular fashion in the center of the table. Place clear or white acrylic ice chips or white rocks in the bottom of each votive. Next, place a white floating candle in each votive. Sprinkle acrylic ice chips or rocks around the votives.
Collect several long branches and spray-paint them white or silver. Place in a tall clear vase and fill the vase with clear acrylic ice chips, clear pebbles or stones. String a small set of battery-operated white lights throughout the branches. Or, instead of lights, apply glitter and drape crystal garland throughout the branches. Create a bow with silver or white ribbon around the top of the vase, then place three to four white votive candles or white floating candles in small, clear candle holders around the branch centerpiece.
