Hey, y’all! We are in full holiday creation mode right now over at the Chateau. Our team of coaches and I have been having a blast letting our creative juices flow and coming up with some fabulous holiday ideas that we just know you’ll love.
We’ve been pumping out centerpiece designs because customers love how easy they make it to decorate for…anything! And with that in mind, customers will pay good money for centerpieces.
Do you know what else? Wreath makers have a golden opportunity when adding centerpieces to their shop because they perfectly complement wreaths. If you can create matching (or complementing) wreath and centerpiece designs, you have a great chance of having customers purchase BOTH from you!
Today we have Coach Jordan showing another centerpiece masterpiece. This is one design that you’ll want to have in your toolbox because it comes together in minutes and will sell quickly – that’s a win-win!
Let’s dive into this new Christmas centerpiece idea!
How To Create This Christmas Rocking Horse Christmas Centerpiece Idea
This Christmas rocking horse decor will surprise you with how quickly it comes together!
Here’s everything you’ll need to complete this project. I have included links to some items to make them easier to find.
- 1 small wooden rocking horse
- 1 frosted greenery spray
- Large poinsettia floral stem
- 1 curly spray
- 1 mini candle ring
- (2) 4” ribbons
- (1) 1.5” ribbon
- Stem cutter
- Bolt cutters
- Zip ties
- Hot glue and glue gun
Are you ready to see how easy it is to create centerpieces? Just follow this step-by-step guide.
Take your 1.5” ribbon and cut a 24” strip. Wrap the strip around the wooden body of the rocking horse (going underneath the body) and tie it loosely (but don’t knot it) on top of the wooden body.
Let’s make a simple bow.
Take your 1.5” ribbon and make (1) 8” tail and (2) 5” loops on each side. Continue holding this layer in your hand as you make the next layer.
Next, take your first 4” ribbon and make (1) 8” tail and (1) 5.5” loop on each side. Place this layer behind the other layer and continue holding both layers.
Grab your second 4” ribbon and make (1) 8” tail and (1) 6” loop on each side. Place this layer behind the previous layer.
Take a zip tie and slide it under the ribbon you tied to the rocking horse’s body. Place your bow on top of the rocking horse’s body and wrap the zip tie around the center of your bow. Zip it tightly to secure the bow onto the rocking horse.
Take the ribbon you tied around the rocking horse’s body and tie it around the center of the bow to hide the zip tie.
Dovetail the ends of the ribbons.
Prepare your candle ring by using the bolt cutters to cut it open and then cut the strip in half. Spread out the items on the ring to make it look full.
Take your hot glue gun and add a dab of hot glue to the ends of the candle ring stems. Insert one stem into each side of the bow so that the stems hang down from the rocking horse’s body.
Next, take your frosted greenery stem and cut the smaller stems off of the main stem.
Using dabs of hot glue, glue the frosted greenery stem pieces into the design all around the bow.
Add a dab of hot glue to the end of the curly pick stem and insert it into the bow for a little added texture and dimension.
Take the large poinsettia floral stem and trim the excess stem off. Spread out the petals so that it looks nice and full. Then add a dab of hot glue to the stem and insert it into the back of the bow.
Fluff everything out, and you’re done!
