Simple DIY Holiday Cranberry Centerpiece

A creative DIY holiday centerpiece made from a grapevine wreath, glass vases, fresh cranberries and mini shatterproof ornaments.  
Today I have an easy DIY Holiday Cranberry Centerpiece to share with y'all. I love decorating my dining room table for the holidays especially for Christmas dinner. I have always liked the option of a festive centerpiece on my table, but honestly I really can't afford any of the ones they have in the stores.  

I'm here to tell you that having an amazing holiday centerpiece doesn't have to be expensive. With just a few festive supplies, a variety of glass vases, and some fresh cranberries you too can have a simple, festive DIY holiday centerpiece. 

This festive centerpiece is simple to make and easily comes together in no time. Fresh cranberries and a decorative grapevine wreath on a holiday tray make up this perfect holiday centerpiece. This festive project is perfect for anyone on a tight budget, and can be used year after year. 

I used a variety of glass vases in different heights, filled each one with fresh cranberries, and white votive candles (floating candles can also be used). I added a bud vase and filled it with a few mini shatterproof ornaments (red, white and silver) and stacked them inside the vase. I think this centerpiece turned out so pretty and the total cost came in under $24 to make.  

To start gather all your supplies together (see below for a full listing). Place the grapevine wreath on top of the round Christmas tray. This will be the base of the centerpiece. Using wire cutters, snap the smaller stems off the floral holly berry and floral cranberries.

Poke the individual stem pieces of the floral holly berry and pine cones, into the grapevine wreath and continue around the whole wreath. Add more or less floral to your liking. Place the 3 glass vases into the middle of the wreath (using various vases in different heights is best). 

Fill the two larger vases with fresh cranberries, and add one glass votive holder into each of the two larger vases (placing it on top of the cranberries but also snug inside). Add a votive candle to each votive candle holder. Add and stack about 8-10 small shatterproof ornaments into the bud vase. 

Place this cranberry centerpiece in the middle of your dining room table or coffee table on a burlap runner, light, and enjoy! Everything needed to make this festive holiday centerpiece can be purchased at your local Walmart
