I love using sea glass and vases around my home to create a coastal vibe. The light turquoise blue color is perfect and they can be used almost anywhere. I had an extra one that I needed to use this holiday season and decided to try and make a unique sea glass table centerpiece with a few things I already had around my house. It came out super cute and was so simple to make. I decided I needed to share it here so you can make one of your own!
I’m using this as a centerpiece for my coastal Christmas dining room table but you could change out a few items and use this DIY centerpiece for any holiday or any time of the year.
Here’s a view from the top in the evening with all of the lights twinkling! You can’t see the strings on the lights unless you’re actually looking for them.
I love how the lights make it look like the jar is glowing. The addition of the pine tree branches gives it a Christmas feel.
How To Make A Unique Sea Glass Table Centerpiece For Any Season
First, find a sea glass vase or bowl that you’re going to use for your DIY decor piece. I already had one that I wasn’t using so I just used that!
Decide if you want to add wine corks to yours. I had an entire bag full of wine corks that were just sitting in my dining room cabinet – I thought they would be a cute addition!
Next, layer the bottom of the glass vase jar with the wine corks.
Add in some pine cone Potpourri. I love getting different variations of potpourri bags to fit each season. I used a few white and brown colors for this project. You can find different colors and different scents to fit the season or holiday.
I used a similar type with my simple neutral Thanksgiving table centerpiece.
Since I was creating this for Christmas decor, I used some pine tree branches. Actually, I cut off some limbs from my Coastal Christmas Tree and used them!
They smell fresh and I didn’t have to go out buying anything else for my centerpiece.
Last but not least, add your twinkly fairy lights!
I found some silver bulb string lights at home goods one time and was saving them to make a DIY Christmas decor piece. They were perfect for this!
I’ve been playing around with where to put this in my dining room. It looks great on the table but I also like it over on my dining room side hutch. I put a Santa hat on the top for a Christmas touch!
TIP: To change this around for another holiday or season, use a different color potpourri.
