DIY Trees | Perfect Home Accents and Fall Centerpieces
We're seeing small trees everywhere this fall ~ from weddings centerpieces to home decor stores, they're definitely an "it" look for fall.
If you love the look but need a little help getting it just right, we have some ideas that will get you started while letting you maintain creative control.
Let's start with a finished product and show you the ingredients that you need to create it. This pretty tree would make a great wedding or baby shower centerpiece, or a seasonal home accent. To make it, begin with a Manzanita Tree in a Base
, and then add burlap birdies and flower clips, hanging tea lights and a pinch off a moss roll. The result is this reusable, customizable tree. Add a small chalkboard sign and you've got a great wedding centerpiece.
For your next event, or to complement the change of seasons, simply switch out the accents while keeping the manzanita tree as your base. (Be sure to save the accent pieces from season to season, since you can reuse the ornaments for years.) The manzanita tree itself will also last for lots of years/events, and you can customize it to go with themes, venues, holidays, etc.
For fall, we love mixed Metal Bead Curtains
as accents against the manzanita trees. Add butterflies, acrylic pendants, bead strands, and even Acrylic Sprays
for a layered look that will usher in autumn in style. For Halloween, we can see a blingalicious tree with orange and black acrylic pendants suspended from black bead strands. Burlap wraps hide the wooden base and help make this a quick DIY project, or you can also paint the base. And don't even get us started on how awesome these could be for Christmas.
