DIY Wedding Center Pieces?

by DIY wedding planner on December 9, 2011

Ok, so my aunt and uncle are getting married this August and I’m looking for pretty but simple DIY centerpiece ideas. If you could include links, pictures, and examples that would be awesome! We would really appreciate it! Thanks!

I went to the Dollar Tree, got their glass vases and filled with glass gems and candles and bought the mirrors there. All in all it was only 50 dollars if even that for everything.

I got cheap small square vases, filled with clear silica gel that I mixed with some gold glitter, hand tied a couple of flowers together with bear grass (I had cala lillies as that was my theme) and placed on a round mirror with sparkles on the table, then let people take them as gifts. Other ideas I’ve seen are martini glasses with jelly beans…….but the most fun idea was jenga/kerplunk in the middle!!!!

I bought a bunch of small roundish glass bowls/vases at Walmart (super cheap, like a $1.50 a piece) and then ordered round floating candles (because they lasted the longest) online at “” The place the reception was had their own glass mirrors that we set this all on. And that was it! Did up about 30 tables in under $100.

Try these girls!

They hand make all their wedding stuff and so extremely reasonable! They did my wedding and it looked like a million bucks for a fraction of the price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We did almost the same thing as the first responder. Our colors were sapphire blue and silver. I bought some very inexpensive glass bowls and some blue and silver stones. I put them in the bowls and then added water and a floating candle. We set this on large square mirrored tiles. We then added two votive candles on each mirror tile to increase the reflection. It was very simple and very inexpensive.

I’m sorry I don’t have any pictures to include.
