First, here was my inspiration:
Then I mapped out a blueprint of my plan. Items included 2 candlesticks, 1 bowl, crystals and 1 wooden base totaling $6 plus $19 for flowers = $25 per centerpiece
I purchased the candlesticks from Dollarama however they no longer stock them so you can purchase them from craftparts.
Here is my first prototype. Flowers were too small.
Here is my second prototype. Babies Breath - soft and delicate - big impact at low cost.
Spray painted everything and assembled.
Here are the final DIY centerpieces. I was very pleased with the outcome and we saved $1,050 (plus we sold the centerpieces after the wedding - Bonus!)
