You will need;
- Branches shaped like trees, go for home grown, free ones, if
you can. If not, you can order branches online, but before you do, think about
how high you are going to need your branches to be. I think 3 feet would be the
maximum, otherwise you are going to need pretty big pots to balance the weight of
the branch and stop them toppling over. Also, take a look at the height of your
- Stones and Expanding foam to secure your branch.
- Terracotta pots – they are cheap and weighty.
- Spray paint – if you want your branches and pots painted.
- Old newspaper
- Decorations to hang on the branches
- Covering for the base - ribbons, glass beads, moss
- And an extra pair of hands!
How To Make Your Own Tree Centerpieces
- Start by spray painting all of your branches, this is
easiest if you have an open space where you can lie them all down on old newspaper.
When one side is dry turn them all over and spray the other side.
- At the same time spray paint all of your pots.
- When everything is dry you can start putting your tree
- Have your extra pair of hands hold the branch where you want
it to be, then place stones around the branch to hold it in place.
- Next is the fun and slightly dangerous part! You are going
to use the expanding foam to make sure your branch never moves. Please make
sure you read all of the safety instructions for the foam as this stuff can get
very messy and it’s a nightmare to get off. You won’t need as much of this as
you probably think – it does what it says on the tin and expands.
- Fill your pots with the foam and let it dry.
- Now you can add your decorations.

This stunning black and white tree centerpiece looks great sprayed in silver. The colored glass beads add to the overall theme and the beads hanging from the branches will give an extra sparkle when the candles are lit.
Your tree branches could also be kept natural, gorgeous fall colors in the Autumn and blossom in the Spring.
