I’m so excited today to be a part of a big Winter themed celebration with some other pretty fabulous bloggers.

The decor I’m sharing is not only super duper easy, but honestly very inexpensive {especially if you’re a craft store junky like myself}.  All of the items I used were purchased after Christmas last year for about 80% off!

To make your own Candy Swirl Centerpiece, you’ll need:

foam vase filler {reds, whites, and silvers}

red & white “candy” inspired Christmas stems

a fish bowl

a small foam disc

To assemble the centerpiece, I first made sure to clean the fish bowl with some glass cleaner.  It was a bit dusty from sitting in my craft closet for about 12 months.  Once it was clean, I placed the small foam disc inside the fish bowl, poked the Christmas stems through the foam, and arranged them until I felt satisfied with how they looked.

Finally, I added the red, white, and silver vase filler, and voila!  Instant, candy swirl centerpiece for our kitchen table!

I placed it on top of a couple pieces of burlap and added a couple of felt snowflake ornaments to finish off the look.

    This centerpiece is stunning, Meredith! I LOVE the color combo of red/white/black so I could create something like this for anytime of year! Thanks for inspiring me!
