My dining room centerpiece is ANOTHER “Pin”spiration (of course……)
Here’s my “Pin”spiration: (from http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2012/01/diy-planter-box-centerpiece.html )
I love Shanty 2 Chic’s trough and her blog gives EXCELLENT step-by-step instructions. I WILL be making one for my mantle…. BUT in the meantime, I decided to go a slightly different route.
I was at Sams Club shopping about 2 months ago and bought the little “picket fence” looking box. It was filled with flowers (that I, and my black thumb, quickly killed … ahhhh well… they were pretty while they lasted). And I saved the box because I KNEW that I could find something to do with it.
After a trip to POPS (a fun Soda Pop store/restaurant/gas station here in Oklahoma on Route 66 – if you’re ever here visiting I recommend it as a fun place for you and the kiddos), my Family returned home with a variety of bottled cream sodas (YUM!) and I came home eager to fill my planter box.
After finishing the Cream Sodas (with me chanting …. Chug, Chug, Chug…. HA!), I cleaned out the bottles & simply placed them in my planter box. Then I inserted a fake flower ( from Hobby Lobby) into each one. Voila…… Just like that… I had a simple, adorable, fun kitchen table centerpiece. Thanks for the “Pin”spiration, Shanty 2 Chic!
Have a beautiful day & Happy Pinning!,
