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

What do you think?

    Very simple yet pretty idea, Jill. I like it. It’s versatile for just about any season. I hope you like where you are moving. We are moving soon, too. It’s a process for sure. I hope your move goes very smoothly. ~~~Mary (over at Front Porch Ideas)

    So pretty!! I love the touch of moss! Good luck with your move! We moved last summer and have lots of ‘to-do’projects in our new home – it’s lots of fun decorating a new home!
