How To Create A Simple, Repurposed Spring Centerpiece

Acorn Disclosure-2Spring is here. For most of us that means cleaning our homes and getting rid of stuff that we don’t use any more. But if you’re anything like me, getting rid of things just isn’t that easy. That’s why I love to repurpose items and use them in fun new ways. Since April is all about the flowers, I decided to create a super cute (and equally easy) centerpiece to brighten up my dining room. Here are a few tips on how to re-purpose and create a beautiful centerpiece for your home!




First things first – No centerpiece looks good on a dull table, and lets just say that mine needed a little sprucing up. (Just look at that filthy table below) So before I even started putting together my table, I headed out to Wal-Mart and picked up some Pledge® Lemon Clean Furniture Spray. Of course it was super easy to find in the Home Cleaning section, so I was in and out in a jiff!






One thing I love about Pledge® Lemon Clean Furniture Spray is that it makes the whole area smell fresh, without being too overpowering!.That’s pretty important when it comes to setting a table that you eat on every day! It’s so easy to use, too! I just spray it down then use a paper towel to wipe it up. Voila! Shiny, lemon-scented table ready for my floral centerpiece!




After my table was clean, shiny, and lemon-y I started grabbing some props to decorate with! I always pick up cute things when I see them on sale, so this part was fun and easy. I grabbed some matching wooden vases, a cookie jar, some sea shells, and a decorative chalkboard.




I threw the seashells into the bottom of the cookie jar, then arranged the flowers on top of them. Next up, I put my decorative chalkboard on the middle of the table and started stacking everything up! I moved everything around a few times until I found the perfect spot for my flowers. It may, or may not, have ended up on a side that didn’t obstruct my view of the TV. Nevertheless, the final set-up was perfect!






I am pleased with my little centerpiece project. I think it was a great way to liven up my dining space (and keep from throwing away some playful pieces). It is so easy to go out and buy new things to decorate with every season, but I think re-purposing is so much more fulfilling!


I would love for you to try this out, and share your re-purposed centerpieces with me! I can’t wait to see what fun things you come up with! Let me know, in the comments below, what great ideas you have!
