This past weekend I was lucky enough to help host my sister in law’s rustic wine themed bridal shower. Knowing that we would be making 7 centerpieces, we wanted to save on our budget by creating them ourselves at home with a few supplies from Oriental Trading Company and a little bit of effort! These centerpieces are so versatile and can truly be customized to any theme and can display a variety of phrasing and colors. You can create this elegantly rustic look at home with a few simple supplies and our step by step tutorial. These centerpieces would be perfect displayed at a bridal shower, a wedding, a baby shower and and more!
Foam Paint Brush
1.) Start creating your centerpiece boxes by applying a few coats of wood stain to your centerpiece until you achieve the desired color. If you want a more modern look, you could easily paint the box in a color of your choice instead.
2.) Once the box is dry, place your calligraphy stencil on the box and secure it in place with painters tape. Next, using a foam paintbrush, dab on the stencil with the paint color of your choosing.
3.) Once the stencil is complete, carefully remove.
4.) Now, place 4 mason jars and 3 wine bottles into each centerpiece, alternating between the two types of glassware.
5.) Trim your flowers and start arranging them within the mason jars. We went for a wildflower type mix for a rustic look but you could easily use roses, peonies or tulips. Add in a random cork or two to play up the wine theme.
6.) Lastly, display your centerpiece at your bridal shower, wedding, dinner party, baby shower or more!
