Wedding gift table centerpiece
“Hi, I’m Sandy Sandler, the creator of the Bowdabra Bowmaker, and today, I’m going to show you how to make this really super simple wedding gift table centerpiece, or I might actually use it for a winter birthday celebration. So, let’s get started. It is so easy to make centerpieces with Bowdabra blog has lots of easy tutorials and videos, so be sure and check them out.
First, I’m going to start by making some scrunchy bows. So, the first thing I’ll do is take my Bowdabra Bow Wire, cut a piece, and lay this into my Bowdabra, and I’m just going to tuck the ends underneath. Then, I’m going to take about 14” of Bowdabra Scrunchy Ribbon, and we’ll just scrunch that in. Now, I’ve already made a few ahead, so this will be really simple and quick, so you don’t have to watch me make them all.
Next, I’m just going to bring this around and tie a knot and clip the ends and put this aside. And then, what I’m going to do is take my vase and put that in the center here. And then, I have a couple of Zots, and what I’m going to do is just stick the Zots right into my vase and they’ll help hold my branch in. So, I’m just going to put that in there.
Add the scrunchy bows
Next, what I’m going to do is take my scrunchy bows, and we’re just going to put them all the way around in here so it covers the foam. And then, what I’m going to do is put this in so that the light is facing up so I can just easily reach in and turn on the light.
Then, what I’m going to do is take this branch and just put the branch into my foam, and take these branches here, and we’re just going to put those in the side here and take this one here and just put that in on the side here. We’re going to be putting a lot into this. Now, I have these little picks leftover from the holidays. Since they have little gifts on them, I think they’re really cool for a gift table centerpiece.
So, just put those in the side here, and I’m actually going to bring this around here so that stays in there. And I’m going to put in another one of my scrunchy ribbons so we cover everything up.
Add the mesh
Now, I’m just going to click my lights on here and put that aside. And I’m going to grab my Bowdabra and take some more of my Bowdabra Bow Wire, and I’ll just fold that in half and lay this in here. And then, what I’m going to do is take my mesh and we’re just going to scrunch this in, and we do sell this mesh in our Bowdabra store.
Next, I have this really pretty snowflake ornament. I’m just going to lay that in there and bring this up here, pull it through my slipknot. So, this is really quick. It’s a great way to use picks that you have laying around. And I’m going to separate the ends, bring it around to the back, tie a knot, and tie another knot. And then, I’m just going to take this and clip my ends here.
Finishing your gift table centerpiece
Now, I’m going to take the little ornament wire here, and I’m just going to put that onto this pick. And I’m going to bring this snowflake around. And we’ve got our finished gift table centerpiece. So, it’s super, super simple to make but looks so elegant.
