DIY Pastel Christmas Table Top Centrepiece

Have you ever seen a Christmas display that’s done in shades other than the traditional green and red colours you’re used to and just fallen in love with it? I did that recently when I saw a Christmas decor scheme that was all white and pastel pink and I’ve been obsessing over it ever since. I didn’t find many pieces in stores, however, so I decided to make a pastel Christmas centrepiece of my own! Just in case you love that idea just as much as I do, I kept track of my steps for people to follow along with.

Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.

For this project, you’ll need:

  • A miniature pot (white)
  • A white ribbon
  • Two pencils (one for drawing and one for the craft)
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Miniature faux pinecones
  • Styrofoam
  • A styrofoam cone
  • A folding utility knife
  • Pink fur trim
  • White fabric
  • A star bead or trinket
  • Styrofoam balls (white and silver)
  • A white pine branch
  • Pink pearl beads

Step 1:

Gather your materials!

Step 2:

Cut a piece from your styrofoam block that’s about the diameter of your mini planting pot using your folding knife. Then round off the corners and edge to make a cylinder that will fit in the pot better. You might have to shorten the piece if it’s too tall and sticks out beyond the brim. Set this aside for a moment once you’ve got the right fit.

Step 3:

Lay your white scrap of fabric flat and place the tip of your foam cone in the top right corner, angling it downward diagonally. Trace and arc just past the edge of your cone’s wider circular base with your pencil, starting from the left edge and ending at the top edge, curving past the bottom of the cone. Cut this piece out along its curved line and set it aside. Next, place your cone on its base on the fabric and trace around the bottom to draw a circle the same size. Cut this out and set it aside as well.
