Christmas Centrepiece Ideas

Elevate the look of your dinner table this holiday season with these great DIY Christmas centrepiece ideas. Using simple decorations, you’ll be able to create beautiful, eye-catching table accents that incorporate wreaths, candles, Christmas greenery and more to give your table a beautiful, holiday look and feel.

Build Your Own Christmas Centrepiece Planter Box

If you’ve seen our guide on how to build a Christmas planter box, you’ll know that it’s an easy way to feature winter greenery and holiday accessories! Follow the steps to build your box and then make an arrangement with candles and Christmas ornaments to make it great.

Use a Wreath and Candles

While wreaths are traditionally seen hanging from your door, why not lay it flat and adorn it with some beautiful candles? The natural look of the wreath will be highlighted by the dancing flames to give off a warm and cozy feel.

Use Winter Greenery for your Centrepiece

Pine needles, frosted pinecones and other outdoor winter plants and accessories can create a beautiful centrepiece that brings a bit of the outside winter wonderland inside.

Incorporate Untraditional Christmas Colours

While Christmas usually means greens and reds throughout your home, consider incorporating some light blue, white or even silvers and golds to really make your centrepiece pop.

Make an Arrangement on a Vase or Urn

For a simple yet gorgeous touch, add some flowers, greenery and more to a vase or urn to create a centrepiece that stands up off the table. This makes it a focal point and is sure to catch the eye of your guests this holiday season.

Decorate a box with Christmas Ornaments

They’re not just for trees anymore! A decorative box accented with Christmas ornaments is an elegant and distinct way of adding some flare to your table. Consider Christmas spheres, or longer ornaments to add some variety.

Build a Tiered Terracotta Pot Centrepiece

If you’ve got terracotta pots laying around, turn them upside down on their bases and stack them, using gradually smaller pots for each additional layer. On the exposed plate rim, add holly, greenery or any other accessories you like and then top it off with a candle holder and candle for a piece that’s sure to please.

Feature the Greenery with a Swag Wreath

Swag wreaths lay long and flat and make a great centrepiece for any table. Some even come pre-decorated so you’ll simply have to lay there. Otherwise, decorate it with your own colours, plants and more to personalize it.
