Happy Friday!!

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.

See how I used a scrap 2x4 board and transformed it into a simple wooden farmhouse style centerpiece using 5 blue glass vases.  Add in some beautiful silk roses and you have a gorgeous, easy centerpiece!

week 1 | week 2 | week 3 (you’re here)

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?!

See how I used thrift store vases and just one type of flower to make the prettiest centerpiece perfect for Fall!

For this week, I’m switching things up a bit.  Time to DIY a centerpiece!!

Supplies for DIY Wood Centerpiece:

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!

Step 1. Cut the Wood for the Centerpiece

First, cut your 2×4 down to get two boards at 17.5″ long using a miter saw.

Using a Miter Saw to cut down scrap wood for the DIY wooden Centerpiece is easy and can be done in a short amount of time

Step 2. Mark Board for Jar Placement

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 a 2 5/8″ hole saw because the width of the base of the bottles was a little over 2″.

Note: we left a 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.

When using bottles and cutting a hole for them mark the wood and leave space on each side of the bottle for the centerpiece
Spacing is key so you don't accidentally drill your holes too close together on your DIY wood centerpiece

Step 3. Drill a Pilot Hole in the Wood

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.

Step 4. Drill Holes in DIY Wood Centerpiece

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!

Step 5. Add the Flowers

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 the bigger roses.  Each spray also had a rosebud (so sweet!) and I kept the leaves on the rosebud.

Next, I used a small section of the baby’s breath bush (in pale cream color) to act as a filler flower.

So, each bottle had one large cabbage rose without leaves, one rosebud with leaves, and a small section of baby’s breath.

Finished look at a DIY wood centerpiece that was done in a farmhouse style is a beautiful idea for your dining room table

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 same pale pink roses I’m looking for until I found these ones at Afloral!  The pictures really don’t do them justice.
