February 12th, 2013 posted by Family Circle Weekend Crafts

Use minimal supplies to make these pretty and festive holiday centerpieces for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table. Make several and give a few as gifts.

You will need:

Approximately twenty-seven 16″ long cinnamon sticks for place card Floral tape Tacky glue or hot glue and glue gun Assortment of dried flowers (such as larkspur, statice, lavender, rosebuds or rose blossoms) Small pinecones 2″-wide and 1/4″-wide velvet ribbon 1″-wide and 3/4″-wide grosgrain ribbon Place cards

Using the photograph as a guide, insert flowers by dipping the stem ends into glue before placing among cinnamon sticks. Glue pinecones among the flowers. Wrap 2″-wide velvet ribbon around the bundle and tie a bow. Add a small bow of 1″-wide grosgrain ribbon on top of velvet bow. Use whatever color ribbons complement the flowers and your table setting. Glue a few small flowers and cones to the knot portion of your bow. Table topper

Make place card bundles in the same manner as the centerpiece, using the 4″ long cinnamon sticks and the narrower ribbons. Insert a place card with the name of the guest into each cinnamon stick bundle as shown.
