Summer Centerpiece

I put together aspects from other DIY projects that I have seen recently to create this summery dining room centerpiece.  To make this, I went shopping around my house for pieces of glassware and went to the pantry for some white rice.

Cost = ZERO!!!

I covered the bottom of a wine glass, mason jar, and a glass bowl with the rice and stuck a votive candle in the bottom. How easy is that?! DSC05100DSC05102DSC05105

I tied a piece of twine around the mason jar to finish it off.DSC05111DSC05112

If you wanted more of a beachy vibe, you could lean a starfish or some coral up against the candleThe Inspired Room


Simple, sweet, and affordable décor, that’s where I’m at!

Who woulda thought rice could be so elegant... I'm currently using rice in my summer center piece (with candles) too!

Lovely Idea!! I love the one with the starfish on, would be nice with sand in this one instead of rice for a beach look

Such a cute idea! This makes me want summer to come right now! I never thought of using rice as a filler, but it compliments the look your going for:)
