Happy new year! I'm not much of a resolution girl, but I always resolve to add interesting decor to my home and my clients' homes.
I have a favorite copper container that I fill with various decor items throughout the year. It was filled with holiday items in December, but once I put them away I wanted to fill it with more of an every day decor (see finished product in first picture).
I'll take you through the 4 easy steps of creating this great centerpiece.
First step: fill the container with large items (house plants in this case, but could also be vases for fresh flowers or ceramic pieces). Keep it to a few large items.
Second & third steps: Add blue vases and bottles around the plants. This ads height variation and color. Next, fill the container with craft paper to "lift' the bottom of the container up -- this will allow our final layer to be seen (and it allows us to use less filler).
