Dining Room Table Christmas Centerpiece
A few days ago I posted some dining room centerpiece inspiration for Christmas. I decided to tackle that room first and wanted to share what I ended up doing. I already had these birch candles and wanted to use as much of what I had on hand as possible. I found the wooden sectioned container at Ross for $11. I also already had the berries on hand. So for me, the total cost was only $11 and I will be able to use what I bought for other things throughout the year.
My favorite part is the paper runner though. I had been looking for paper runners on Etsy and they are expensive (also you have to buy then in like 30 feet incriments)! I didn't want to do that. My next idea was to buy normal brown kraft paper and stencil is with polka dots or stripes...but that sounded like a lot of work.
And then I found this WRAPPING PAPER at TJ Maxx. It was $2.99! and was the perfect width so I didn't need to trim or cut it. I also still have some left to wrap presents!!
It is thicker than normal paper so it is pretty difficult to rip. I was so excited because it was exactly what I was looking for to give my table a contemporary feel...and it was under $3!
TJ Maxx had some great wrapping paper options that were really unique and elegant so check them out.
I love the finished result of my dining room table. Simple, inexpensive and a little modern.
