1 . Cranberry candles
For a simple yet stunning centerpiece, place five votive candles (in a variety of Christmas colors) in a line down a red rectangular serving dish. Fill the rest of the dish with cranberries, garnish with a few pine twigs and dust with artificial snow.
2 . Holiday tiers
Display favorite Christmas cards on a tiered stand along with artificial greens, small presents and ornaments.
3 . Balls of fun
Create a colorful centerpiece by filling a silver bowl with an assortment of brightly colored ornaments. Place the bowl on a cake stand and cover the extra space on the cake stand with holly and evergreens.
4 . Green glow
This all green centerpiece is both easy to make and elegant. We used an oblong plate and a rectangular one, but you can experiment with any shape and size of plates you have at home. Place a large green candle and a smaller green one on the top plate and tuck pine twigs around the candles and between the plates. Garnish with several green Christmas ornaments to finish the look.
5 . Red and white cheer
Carnations top a rectangular glass vase covered with candy canes. Attach candy canes to the vase with a hot glue gun; anchor flowers in floral foam. If you like, spray canes with coats of clear acrylic spray to avoid stickiness. Finish with ribbon and mint.
6 . Tiny trio
Three ceramic snowmen make a whimsicaland super easycenterpiece. Place foam or wooden snowflakes on a blue runner and add snowmen or any holiday figure.
7 . Pretty paperwhites
Place paperwhites in a large compote or bowl. Cover the potting soil with mini ball ornaments in colors that coordinate with your holiday scheme.
8 . Tower of apples
Green apples are the perfect hue for an easy Christmas display. Fill a glass jar with apples; mix in loose greens for a wintry feel. Place container on a beveled edge mirror (that serves as a table runner). Fill in with additional greens, ball ornaments and candles of different sizes.
9 . Lantern light
Surround lanterns with fresh greenery and pine cones for a classic, elegant centerpiece.
10 . Fragrant light
Take advantage of holiday scents by making a fragrant red candle the center of your next Christmas centerpiece. Cut and weave together a bed of artificial evergreen branches. Place the candle in the center of the branches and scatter a collection of colorful ornaments, bells and pinecones around the branches. Garnish with ribbon if desired. Be sure never to leave a burning candle unattended.
