Hiya! I’m Sue Purdy and I blog over at A Purdy Little House, where I’m all about DIY and home decor on a budget. I’m so excited about the warmer temperatures and it inspired me to create a fun coastal table centerpiece for my recent outdoor dessert party.
This coastal table centerpiece was created using things I had around the house. The items I used include:
Mason Jars (3)
Tea Light Candles (3)
I started with tying some twine around the mason jars.
Next I went out to the kid’s sand box and scooped some sand into the jars to vary the height of the candles.
Then I added in some sea shells that I had on hand from another project. They are typically found at the dollar store and I love how inexpensive they are. If you’re lucky enough to find some on the beach, the price is even better than the dollar store’s prices.
This galvanized tray was purchased at the dollar store as well for $3.00, but any tray would do for this project. I put some sand along the bottom of the tray to act as a base for the mason jars.
We attended a destination wedding several years ago and each guest got to take home a starfish as a wedding favor. I kept them to use as summer décor, and they worked out perfectly for this project. I glued each starfish to the twine using my glue gun.
After placing the mason jars in the center of the tray, I added some additional shells on each side.
Here is the completed centerpiece. I added some tea lights to each mason jar and pushed them into the sand so they would stay put.
I love the beachy coastal vibe.
The shells are so pretty with their pink and purple tones.
My table is now all set for my dessert party. The tea lights give off a wonderful and warm glow into the summer evening, which makes this centerpiece perfect for small intimate gatherings.
I added these napkins that echo the sand tones of the centerpiece, and the blues remind me of the ocean.
Thank you so much for checking out these easy steps to creating a fun and beachy coastal table centerpiece. See you next time my friends. Happy Crafting!
