Most days my dining room centerpiece is a collection of baseball caps, mail, and a tape measure. It is a full-time job to keep the clutter off our dining room table. If you get overwhelmed thinking about centerpieces you will love this seriously simple spring centerpiece.
And the best part is you can put it together in a few minutes (or less).
SIMPLE SPRING CENTERPIECE
This is my go-to spring centerpiece idea. The best part is this works for every season and holiday! Originally, my centerpiece was on my front door followed by a career change and subsequent relocation to the dining room.
Yep, my centerpiece is a front door wreath!
WREATH TO CENTERPIECE
Here is what I discovered about my favorite decor staple. I have a history with wreaths!
- wreaths to centerpieces offer more bang for your decor budget
- wreaths can be easily removed for dinner or conversation (more on this below)
- wreaths can be adapted for seasons and holidays
- a wreath has texture and a pop of color without spending an hour on a centerpiece
This spring centerpiece was easy and thrifty. Here is how I made a centerpiece in a minute.-seriously!
The best part is you can create a centerpiece with everyday items around your house.
I love to create layers in my centerpieces. The first thing I do is use a base.
I like to set my wreath/centerpiece on a tray or basket. Dining and kitchen tables have different job titles – a tray basket makes it easy to remove and clears space for dinner or game night.
Why? The super cute spring centerpiece stays intact!
If you don’t have a round tray a charger works too! I love these galvanized chargers.
Now if you want to add a little height to your base grab a stack of dinner plates. The plates become a part of your centerpiece and they are hiding in plain sight.
ADD SEASONAL COLORS
This next idea is an easy way to add color or a theme/season/holiday to the wreath. I wanted to incorporate a little gingham into the centerpiece to match my dining bench pillows and the dining room napkins.
For this layer, I created a gingham layer to add to the centerpiece from this project.
Finally, make sure to fluff the wreath. I was amazed at how much fuller the wreath was after I fluffed up the branches and leaves.
I plan to add pastel eggs to the center of the wreath as we get closer to Easter.
That’s it! I know, right? Would love it if you followed me on Pinterest or pinned these images to your boards!
Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are like those peanut butter chocolate eggs? I just want one more ;0)
