Moss and Twine Summer Centerpiece

I don’t think I have shared this on the blog yet, but we are moving this summer!  {Eek!!}  Well, in about 6 weeks actually.  All of my usual summer decorating has been placed on hold {boo!} but I promise I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. =)  I wanted to create a centerpiece that was easy to make and moveable.  The bright green moss against this crisp white candle plate looks so refreshing!  I am in love with my Moss and Twine Summer Centerpiece!

Creating your own Moss and Twine Summer Centerpiece is as easy as 1-2-3!


1.  White candle holder

2.  Sheet of moss

3.  Votive candles

Told you – it was that easy!!

I cut the moss to fit the inside of the candle plate.  {Man – was that messy!!}  Then I added the votives and wrapped some twine around them.

Warning:  Be sure you use candles in a glass votive!  Moss is highly flammable.  I don’t want any fires!

Doesn’t it look great against my World Market table runner?  I am seriously swooning over this!

This would work great for an outdoor patio table too!  I don’t have one but maybe someday!

I’m thinking I could even re-work this for Christmas
