I immediately jumped at the chance....then reality set in! I'm NOT crafty.
I'm the kid who got lectured in art class because my stick people were unrecognizable. I'm creative in the kitchen not at making cute craft things. I can pick a few ingredients and whip up a tasty meal in no time flat. I knew I was in for a challenge! Coming up with an idea for this project gave me a little anxiety...I'm not going to fib to you! The only parameters for the project is to include Driscoll's Berries. My inspiration was from some of the amazing centerpieces I've seen at weddings. I wanted to build from that idea and include a little holiday flair!
3 glass cylinders (width and height of your choice)
1 decorative plate/charger
Gold Christmas Garland
3 Floating Candles
Driscoll's Berries ~ raspberries & blackberries
I was able to pick up all the items needed for my project at Michael's Craft Store for $25. Keep an eye out for their 40-50% off an item coupons in your Sunday paper. The green plate was on sale for ONLY $1. The berry and gold garland was on sale for 50% off. They have amazing sales at Michael's to make your craft project very affordable!
After sitting for a few minutes to make sure the glue is dried. Fill up your cylinders with water. Then gently place a few frozen blackberries and raspberries in each one. My blackberries were HUGE. Some the size of a quarter and they promptly sunk to the bottom! I had much better success with the raspberries floating!
