Supplies

Designer Christmas Table Centerpiece Tutorial

  • Cut Styrofoam to fit inside the tray. For this sized tray I cut two pieces and then added a bit of hot glue to the tray before placing the Styrofoam in to ensure a snug fit.
  • Next, it’s time to decorate the tray with Chalk Couture. Start by cutting the Holly Jolly transfer in half to separate the two words.
  • Follow the Chalk Couture instructions to apply the Holly Jolly transfer to the wooden tray.  Hey, watch when I did my first Chalk Couture project here.

  • Allow the Chalkology paste to dry – this happens very quickly!
  • Now we’ll start the arrangement. I began with a flocked greenery stem and cut it into pieces. Note: You could start by adding some greenery from a garland as your base as well or even moss to cover the Styrofoam.
  • To adhere the greenery stems for the base, add a wood pick or steel pick to the bottom of the stem, add a bit of hot glue and insert into the base at an angle. I added approximately 7 stems around the outer perimeter of the tray.
  • Continue adding greenery to fill in the tray. Note: Choose greenery with a variety of colors and textures for maximum impact.
  • Once the tray is full with greenery, move on to adding ornaments.
  • To prep the ornaments, I first added a bit of hot glue to the hanger to ensure it will stay securely on the ornament.
  • Next, double up a piece of wire (should be approximately 4 inches long after folding over) and attach to the hanger and twist. Add a pick to the end and attach to the arrangement.
  • Continue the steps above to prep each ornament and add to your arrangement. I like to use ornaments with a  variety of sizes and textures. Note: Group smaller ornaments for more impact.
  • For even more dimension, I added loops of gold and silver ribbon in the arrangement. To adhere the ribbon, pinch the base, add a pick and then hot glue before pushing into the Styrofoam.
  • Lastly, I added a few stems of gold fern leaves.
  • Before you put your tools away, give it one last look all around to ensure there are no empty spaces.
