DIY Table Centrepiece Ideas

If you want to put your own stamp on your wedding décor, table centrepieces are a great place to start. We’ve found some simple and budget friendly DIY centrepiece ideas to get those creative juices flowing.

DIY Centrepieces

For a pop of colour, these pinwheels are just the ticket. Here’s a handy tutorial and free printable. If you’re not up for all that cutting and measuring, try these simple tall vases filled with lemons or other strong colours like limes or oranges. Just pop them in tall vases, and that’s it.


DIY Daisy Vases

For that rustic feel, ask your family and friends to pass on any old glass jars, bottles or tins of varying sizes, leave them undecorated, or add some twine or lace and you’ve got a range of great looking vases.

Loose garden flowers such as roses or daisies are ideal for these. Or you can keep your eye out for a pretty range of tea cups and saucers to hold short stem flowers like gerberas or tulips.


DIY Striped Candleholder Centrepieces

Candles are always popular as centrepieces, and you can easily pick up pillar candles and candle holders of varying sizes in the months running up to your wedding, and transform them with coloured washi tape strips to match your colour scheme. These certainly won’t go to waste, and can be used around your home after the wedding.

Or how about these? Two very different options, but very do-able, and very purse friendly.

DIY Tea Light Table Centrepieces

Tea lights are just so pretty, and we fell in love with these lace tea light holders when we stumbled upon them. Again, if you don’t feel comfortable cutting and sticking lace, a simple arrangement of clear or frosted tea lights holders will do just the job.

Your Hobbies and Interests

Candles or flowers are not the only option for centrepieces. Look at your hobbies and interests, and come up with something that brings out your personality.

For book worms, we love this simple yet effective use of books as a statement piece on your table. The best part is, each table will be different. Again, either collect these from around the house and ask family and friends to de-clutter their book shelved, or second hand book stores. Choose your favourite authors, travel books from the places you’ve visited together, or some trivia books to keep your guests entertained.
