Zero Waste Christmas Table Centrepiece Ideas

It's fun at Christmas to make a table centrepiece, using nature and things you have around the house. You can be as creative as you like. I have four different ideas below. They are all low waste and simple.

1.Rustic Country

If you have a burlap potato sack you can cut it lengthways and role it up to make a table runner.

I had spare pallets in the garden so I chopped off the end and dyed it with coffee. This is a really low waste way of staining wood.

Next fill it with candles. Place the small ones in a tin and place foliage around the candles.

Place some cones on the wooden stump parts.

For the place settings use cloves in oranges to write the initial of the person.

2.Classic White

Get some spare glasses. I had some candle glasses. Fill with salt and pop the candle in. It looks like snow and you can reuse the salt for cleaning.
