Gorgeous Christmas Centerpieces Kids Can Make

When sitting down to Christmas dinner, all eyes go to the center of the table. This is because there is a beautiful centerpiece there that was made by your kids. Don't spend money purchasing something elaborate for the holiday table this year. Let the kids (with your help) do the honors for the family. Here are some centerpiece ideas that are easy enough for kids to create.

Decorative centerpieces can be crafted from items that you already possess. Things that you use to decorate the house each holiday can be converted to an arrangement for the family dinner table. Gather a few things and see what you and the kids can come up with.

It's possible that a string or two of lights can be spared. What about a few sprigs of greenery? Put some of those on the table. No one ever uses every single ornament on the tree. Get the kids to pick the ones they like and add them to the stockpile. Wire bows, wrapping paper, small boxes, and candles are good items for centerpieces. If you don't have any, invest in some decorative flat marbles that are frequently used in flower arrangements. That should be plenty to get started with.

When most people think of holiday centerpieces they see candles and greenery. Try them together and separately. You will need a platter or a charger plate for the base of your centerpiece. Charger plates come in holiday colors and compliment whatever you decide to put on them.

Candles can create a centerpiece all by themselves. Let the kids choose candles of various sizes and colors. Let them mix the heights and colors of the candles however they choose. As an accent have them place colored marbles between and around the candles. The light will sparkle off the marbles when the candles are lit, creating a pretty glow.

Greenery looks rather plain all by itself. To spruce it up, add a string of colored or white lights. A touch of sprayed on snow can be added to the tips as well to give it more of a winter feel.

How about adding some glittery ornaments? Red ornaments resemble large shiny holly berries sitting atop the greenery. Ornaments can be arranged in a glass bowl with miniature pine cones to create a different kind of centerpiece. Floating candles can also be placed in a bowl of water and lit during dinnertime.

The ideas are plentiful when it comes to centerpieces for the holiday dinner table or coffee table. Let the kids create as many as they can think of. If you have more than you can use, give them away to friends and family to adorn their holiday tables as well.
