Christmas Tree Centerpiece

Christmas Tree Centerpiece Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Add sparkle and interest to your holiday centerpiece with pictures and Swarovski Crystal ornaments.

Step one: Prepare the picture frames by inserting all of the images into the frames and then adding two jump rings to the top of each to hang. Add two jump rings to each Swarovski pendant as well, with the exception of the 28mm star pendant which will only have one jump ring.

Step two: To create the base of the centerpiece, cut a piece of Styrofoam or flower foam (found at local craft stores) to approximately five inches square. Insert the silk flowers into the foam and secure with a hot glue gun. Embellish with 6mm faceted round Swarovski crystal AB beads. Cut 8 inch pieces of 22 gauge silver artistic wire, thread it through a crystal and center it. Bend the wire around the crystal and twist it, then insert randomly in the arrangement for a bit of added sparkle.

Step three: Decorate your tree with the Swarovski pendants and sterling silver picture frames. At the top of the tree, add the 28mm Swarovski faceted star pendant. Wrap it onto the tree with wire. Add a few more 6mm faceted round beads for a finishing touch.

Step four: Place the tree on the base and use it as a dinner table centerpiece, or as a coffee table or mantel accent.
