Make this simple but festive DIY Christmas Centerpiece for your own house or to sell. It’s one of my favorite Christmas centerpiece ideas, and it’s super quick to put together!

Hey, y’all! It’s time for another Christmas decor how-to. You’ve seen the pictures rolling out and might have gotten a glimpse of this centerpiece for Christmas in our chandelier makeover post. Isn’t it gorgeous?! Well, now you’re going to know how to make it!

We took an average Christmas centerpiece to the next level, friends! But, what really matters is that it looks fab, and it’s super simple to make (which means it hardly takes any time at all).

I wish we had taken before and after shots, but we were too excited and jumped right in. We did, however, make a video that you can check out down below.

How to Make a Simple Centerpiece for Christmas

Making an Easy Christmas Centerpiece

The Christmas season is a rich one for making and displaying a wide variety of crafts and decor pieces. Seriously, at what other time of the year can you cover your entire house in 2 or 3 colors for a month or more and have it look completely amazing?

Speaking of colors, I’m sure you’ll catch on right away that we’ve got a color theme going on. However, this tutorial leaves so much room for you to infuse your own creativity. Feel free to change the colors as you please to make it match your own holiday decor.

That’s not all! You easily tailor this Christmas centerpiece for this holiday. But what’s more, you can also use different greenery and ribbon patterns and colors to turn this into a centerpiece for Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Easter…you get where I’m going with this, right?

Remember, the basic supplies and steps are the same for all seasons! Personalize it to your heart’s content (or your customer’s desires!) by changing out the types of greenery and the ribbons you use.

Creating a Simple Design That Looks Stunning

While we have many other Christmas project ideas on this site, I wanted to change things up just a little and create a very simple and easy Christmas centerpiece idea for your table. My goal was to design a piece that anyone can make but it looks much more complicated than it actually is.

And I love how it turned out! The colors and textures come together in a way that will make you proud to display it on your table for all to see.

Or if you put it up in your shop for sale, it will disappear like hotcakes because it looks so amazing. Since it’s so quick and easy to make, you can build up an inventory for sale in a very short period of time.

Remember, customers start looking for their new Christmas decor months before the actual holiday, so if you plan to sell these, start building up your inventory and adding it to your shop now!

However, before we dive into this Christmas centerpiece idea, be sure to check out these other fun Christmas projects:
