A DIY idea for a fresh & easy spring tablescape

Is it too soon to start planning Easter dinner? I know I’m already mulling over dessert, as that’s what I usually bring to Easter dinner. I might also think about whipping up these pretty, DIY spring centerpiece and candle cubes, too. Colorful scrapbook papers cover the cubes of STYROFOAM Brand Foam, and then you add moss and silk flowers. Easy! And, easy to adapt to your own style. Many thanks to Diane Flowers for sharing the Spring Candle Cubes and Spring Centerpiece with us.

How pretty would these be at Easter? Super easy to DIY. CraftsnCoffee.com

Set your spring table with these easy pieces.

To make the Spring Candle Cubes & Spring Centerpiece, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 5” cube (centerpiece); and two, 3” cubes (for the candles)
  • Scrapbook papers, at least five different patterns
  • Silk wax flowers in light and dark pink
  • Silk gerbera daisies, three dark pink
  • Reindeer moss in light green
  • Taper candle cup holders, two*
  • Taper candles, two, in coordinating color
  • Paper adhesive
  • Low-temp glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; pencil; sharp knife; stem cutters

*Note: Please be sure to use the candle cups, and do not insert your candles directly into the foam cube.

Combine paper, flowers and foam cubes to make these easy (and pretty!) candle cubes.  Tutorial on CraftsnCoffee.com

Insert a candle cup into the top of each cube to securely hold the candle in place.

To make the Spring Candle Cubes & Spring Centerpiece:

1. Trace one side of each cube onto five different papers. Cut out each square and glue to the sides and bottom of each cube using a paper adhesive.

2. With the sharp knife, carefully cut a hole in the tops of the 3” cubes for the candle cups. Insert the candle cups and glue them in place.

3. Glue moss to the tops of all three cubes, covering the foam.

4. Arrange and insert the three gerbera daisies into the 5” centerpiece cube. Arrange and insert the wax flowers into the candle cubes and the centerpiece cube.

5. Add candles, and enjoy!

Gerbera daisy love! Easy DIY centerpiece idea, too. CraftsnCoffee.com.

If you’d rather, change up the flowers and the colors to complement your own spring table.

I’m not the only one already making plans for Easter dinner, am I? Are you thinking about your menu, too?

Happy crafting.

    This a really cute/versatile idea. This would be wonderful for various holidays/events when you need something small for the table. Thank you for this one! :)

      You’re welcome! Definitely a good choice for special events when you need multiples. You could easily crank out quite a few of these centerpieces in an evening. Sharon

    love your ideas, can’t wait for new things that I can make.

  3. Angie Dyer says:

    So cute! Wondering if you could also use real flowers?

    • Sharon says:

      So glad you like it, Angie. I wouldn’t recommend fresh flowers, unless you use water picks. STYROFOAM Brand Foam won’t absorb water, and I’m afraid the flowers wouldn’t last long unless they were in a water pick. Thanks for stopping in today. Sharon

    We could use a little spring green here. With the snow melting again and rain making the roads flood it is definately time for some SPRING! Love the colors.

    • Sharon says:

      This centerpiece definitely says “spring”, even when it doesn’t look like it outside! It’s really going to get here, Lisa, though it doesn’t seem like it. Keeping thinking “spring.” Sharon
