Centerpieces for a winter wedding do not need to be complicated. A few sprigs of pine and a basket full of pine cones make for easy tabletop decorations. They will glow in candlelight and complement the season’s natural color palette. The only other supplies you will need are ribbon, moss and some pillar candle holders. This tutorial will walk you through the simple steps for creating your own winter wedding tablescape.
1. First, you need to collect your outdoor elements. Use the PowerGear2™ Pruners to cut off two or three small pine branches. These pruners will cut easily through branches up to ¾ inch in diameter, and the low-friction coating on the blades allows them to cut cleanly through pine, cedar and other evergreens with sticky sap. You will use both the pine cones and the evergreens from these branches.
2. Next, cut clusters of pine cones from the branches with your pruners. They are prickly to carry in your hands, so load them into the 10 gallon Kangaroo® Garden Bag. This sturdy, pop-up gardening container is the perfect size to carry around as you are collecting clippings. Go ahead and fill it up as you’re going to scatter the pine cones on your tabletops, and any leftover can be used to make other winter decorations.
3. Use the Amplify® Mixed Media Shears to cut a strip of ribbon to wrap around each pot. These shears are great for cutting through a wide variety of thick materials, such as burlap, canvas and cork. Adhere the cut ribbon to each pot.
4. When the glue is dry and the ribbon is secure, snip off the tip of a pine branch using the Garden Multi-Snips, which are handy for light pruning year-round.
5. Next, simply push the stem end of the cutting firmly down into the pot, so that the needles spring upward out of the container. You don’t even need to add water as the pine cuttings will stay fresh for days without it.
6. Now, use your scissors to cut more strips of ribbon to wrap around your vases. This look was created by adhering a narrow ribbon to a wider ribbon for added contrast.
7. Add a layer of moistened sheet moss (available at garden shops) to the bottom your vase, and then set a candle on top.
When you are ready to decorate on your big day, create informal groupings in the center of each table with your handmade decor. Light the candles, and your elegant and budget-friendly wedding centerpieces are ready for the party!
