Do you have a vintage pie tin collecting dust in your house, or maybe your Grandma’s house?
I collect vintage pie tins and have been wanting to make something out of one for a while. When I needed a centerpiece for this year’s Christmas tablescape, I decided to create an easy one with one of my pie tins.
DIY Pie Tin and Bottle Brush Tree Centerpiece
All you need for this easy centerpiece are these supplies:
- pie tin
- bottle brush trees (from the craft store)
- fake or real greenery and pine cones
- fake snow (from the craft store or Target)
- candle holder or incense holder
- glue dots
- optional: glass cloche
Glue dots are my best friends. I use them to fix ornaments, center pictures on the wall, repair things, hold garlands in place — and I used them to easily glue down the little bottle brush trees on the pie tin.
I added three, one for each of us, added a hand full of the fake snow, the cloche, and then the greenery and pine cones on the outside of the cloche.
I wanted to put the pie tin onto a pedestal, and I tried out different candle holders. Pick a thick one so that the pie tin is stable on it.
This white incense burner was perfect as a base, and as you can see, I simply added three glue dots to the rim before I put the pie tin on top of it.
