It’s already time for the second round in the Dare to DIY challenge. This week’s theme? Entertain.
I created this sparkly bird themed centerpiece for our kitchen island. AND I used everything I already owned so, like my Thanksgiving bunting, this project cost a whole $0. That meant more money in my pocket for Black Friday sales.
I grabbed a silver sequin placement I’ve had for a few years and plopped my Ikea lantern on top. But I didn’t wuss out and throw in a candle. No, no. I grabbed some moss, a fake bird nest, a glass bird ornament (complete with tail feathers) and put them inside the lantern. Then I placed a tealight candle on each corner of the placemat Boom. When in doubt, put a bird on it. Or in it.
Deciding to go the extra mile, I put out two table settings (with things I already owned). An over achiever I am.
I used a silver beaded placemat from Kohls, silver charger from Micheal’s, my late aunt’s Silver Moon china, white napkin, and a glittery pine cone ornament (last year at Kohls) for each place setting.
Here are a couple romantical nighttime photos of the centerpiece.
There you have it. Will you dare to entertain on Monday morning? I just proved that it’s pretty simple, so you really don’t have an excuse.
Are you planning to participate in Monday’s challenge?
Do you believe in the ‘put a bird on it’ motto?
