See how I used a scrap 2×4 board and transformed it into a simple wooden farmhouse style centerpiece using 5 blue glass bottles. Add in some beautiful silk roses and you have a gorgeous, easy centerpiece!

If you remember last 2 Fridays I have shared two of four easy flower arrangement ideas! Well, I’m back today to share the third flower arrangement.
For the first arrangement, I used a vintage milk jug, some roses, and peonies to make the prettiest farmhouse style centerpiece!
Last week I shared an easy farmhouse fall centerpiece using just one type of flower. But, those peonies make such a statement don’t they?!
For this week, I’m switching things up a bit. Time to DIY a centerpiece!!

- 2×4 board
- 2 5/8″ hole saw
- Sander with 220 grit sandpaper
- 5 blue glass vases (mine are from Michaels sold in store only)
Note: Some flowers have seasonal availability. If you click over and don’t see the product, follow the categories below to find similar options!
I’m going to share how we made the centerpiece using the dimensions of the glass bottles I found. BUT, keep in mind that you can adjust the measurements based on the glass bottles you use!
First, cut your 2×4 down to get two boards at 17.5″ long.
Then, mark the center of each hole using a square. We calculated the center of the holes based on the size hole saw we were using. We decided on 2 5/8″ hole saw because the width of the base of the bottles was a little over 2″.
Note: we left 1/4″ gap on each end of the board and 3/4″ between each bottle.
Basically, figure out how many holes/bottles you want and space the holes equally across the board.
Then, we drilled a pilot hole in the center of each “x” marked (center of each hole to be drilled) to help guide the hole saw.
With the pilot holes drilled, it was time to bust out the hole saw!!
We only drilled the holes through ONE of the boards. The bottom 2×4 remained intact.
Now there’s a place for each glass bottle to sit and the centerpiece can also be picked up and moved elsewhere easily.
Next, we used the sander and 220 grit sandpaper to smooth out the edges of the boards and the center of the holes.
Once it was cut and sanded, it was time to stain! Remember to stain the top of the bottom board because you can see through the holes to it!
Last, it was on to the flowers!
I chose to use cabbage roses in the prettiest soft pink shade. I trimmed the roses off the spray and snipped the leaves off of the bigger roses. Each spray also had a rose bud (so sweet!) and I kept the leaves on the rose bud.
Next, I used a small section of baby’s breath bush (in a pale cream color) to act as a filler flower.
So, each bottle had one large cabbage rose without leaves, one rose bud with leaves, and a small section of baby’s breath.
I LOVE how it turned out!! Such an easy centerpiece idea but it really brings a ton of farmhouse style to the table.
The soft pink roses are seriously perfect! I can’t ever find the exact pale pink roses I’m looking for until I found these ones at Afloral! The pictures really don’t do them justice.
I love the details in these roses. They really look real!
I could see this centerpiece being used day to day on your table, in a rustic wedding, or even sitting on open shelves. Spoiler – I have it on my open shelves in our dining room!
Baby’s breath is the perfect farmhouse flower. It’s whimsical and interesting and adds depth to any arrangement. I particular love it in this cream shade. So pretty!
Alright, friends! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Remember to stop back next week for the last flower arrangement idea!
Wishing you a joyful day!
