How to Make a Cranberry Vase Centerpiece
Take your floral arrangement up a notch by displaying it in a vase covered with faux berries.
- plastic container or bucket
- masking tape
- marking pen
- measuring tape or ruler
- hot glue gun and sticks
- red floral or craft spray paint
- faux berries, two different varieties
Spray Paint Bucket
Apply masking tape to the plastic container, cutting long strips to completely cover the surface. Spray paint an even coat, covering the masking tape entirely.
Mark off evenly-spaced vertical stripes on the container using a pen and ruler.
Using the vertical lines as a guide, hot glue rows of pepper berries and cranberries around the vase, alternating between the two.
Add red seasonal flowers and greens — amaryllis, roses, ranunculas or carnations to create a dramatic floral display.
