How to: Make a Contemporary, Glittery Holiday Tree Centerpiece

by Chris Gardner

created at: 12/01/2011

Truth be told, I've never actually owned, made, or utilized a dining table "centerpiece." See, I'm lucky enough to have any dining area at all in my urban apartment, in which I barely manage to fit a small table big enough for four. Once the table is set, filled with glasses, place mats, and the like, there's no room for extra decor. I would need an actual dining room, with an actual dining table.

But, this holiday season, I decided to make one anyway. Small space concerns be darned, my table deserves to be as decked as my halls. (I don't have a hallway either...) And since I've decided to embrace the glitter, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to get sparkly. 

This project took less than ten minutes of work, and cost me well under $10.00 in materials. That's a lot of glittery cheer for the effort, in my book.  So, there's no reason not to make one yourself!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the food, the people, the chill in the air, the song "Over the River and Through the Woods", and the sentiment. There are few things more wonderful than gathering around a table to share a meal with your favorite people in the world. 

Because the dining room table is a focal point for the holiday, I've been thinking a lot about how to dress it up. Below is a collection of inspirations for the...
