I decided to start with something that can easily go to your collection of homemade Christmas centerpieces.

It won’t take long to make, all you need is a tall glass vase, some evergreens from the backyard, and a bunch of shimmering Christmas ornaments (you can steal them from the Christmas tree).

Be creative and customize this idea in a way that fits the rest of your festive decor.

2. Bring Nature to Your Table with a Rustic Table Runner

As I am a huge fan of the Christmas centerpieces with a candle, I was very happy when I found this creative tablescape.

You can also do it – just buy an old wood box from the thrift shop (or make one) and fill the box with tiny faux trees, a cranberries garland, and some candles. I love the rustic vibe this setting brings to the dining room!

3. Make Eerie Luminaries with Cranberries and Evergreen Accents

It’s essential to remember we don’t need to necessarily spend a fortune to create a stunning table centerpiece. The cheap Christmas centerpieces are usually better than the expensive ones because they are (partly) handmade and they show our own artistry.

for instance, transform plain paper bags into festive flower holders for an artistic organic holiday table centerpiece on a budget.

6.ย Make a Woodland-Themed Christmas Tablescape with Ease

Save tons of money this Christmas and create a large table feel full by harmonizing a mixture of pieces foraged from the outdoors like bundles of fresh pine and some vintage candleholders in various sizes to add texture.

I think the more organic the more elegant and nature-inspired Christmas centerpieces are.

7. Create a Magical Christmas Snowman Candle Centerpiece
