When planning to do DIY rustic centerpieces gather items such as wood, pine cones, grain stalks, bare-birch branches, wonderful leaves, dried grasses, small gourds and fruit (apples, pears, cranberries, citrus).
These things can be incorporated in so many different ways and all so gorgeous for your tables.
Here are some ideas to get your creative juices running.
To give the candles a finished look, cut a two or three inch strip of burlap and wrap it around the jar and tie a bow in your theme color around the jar.
An almost elegant look is to cover the jar with paper doilies on the outside using a can of Spray Mount. Tie some strands of raffia around the jar. When lit it gives a magical glow through the doilies.
6. Here's an idea I really like if you can get attractive large pine cones, is to get pots or round tins or small pails. Put Spanish moss in them and secure the pine cone in the center in an upright position. Scatter any choice of country rustic things around the container.
8. Buy 4" pots of flowers or herbs and depending on the size of your tables arrange a group of them in the center of the table on a bed of Spanish moss like florists use. Decorate the pots by tying raffia around tem or covering them with burlap.
These are some of the ideas I like for a chic rustic wedding centerpiece. The best part about them is they are fun to do and inexpensive and look simply stunning on your guest tables.
