A well-designed centerpiece is key to a beautifully decorated table and festive home. There are many ways to create a centerpiece, no matter if you are hosting guests for the winter holidays, or simply adding beauty to your table throughout the year. Some centerpieces can be assembled in a matter of minutes, while others require more time and are more complex. All of them look great on a table.

These 19 ideas will inspire you to create a winter centerpiece you can use throughout the year.

Make a Winter Centerpiece with Food

Celebrate Creativity’s centerpiece is a show-stopper and delicious. It features cinnamon sticks and dried apple flavors. To give the candle a wintery look, the cinnamon sticks were cut down to size and spray painted white. This centerpiece is surrounded by pinecones for a rustic and warm feel.

A Bit of Birch to the Mix

Digs Digs’ simple, elegant, birch-wrapped candleholders are like a walk in the snowy woods. If you don’t have the chance to purchase real soft birch, felt or textured papers can be used to create this look. To make it more holiday-friendly, add a few sprigs with pine or holly.

Go Floral

You don’t have to bring flowers inside if it is cold outside. The stunning centerpiece by Green Wedding Shoes features roses, hyacinths and tallowberries in a vintage-silver vase. You can also incorporate the same wintry floral look into a smaller arrangement if it is too complicated for you. To keep the seasonal feeling, stick to winter whites and deep reds.

Use floating greenery

The August and May Design Co.’s simple candle centerpiece is made with just four ingredients: a candle and a glass, some greenery and water. You can easily create a woodsy feel in your home, even during winter’s coldest days. The whole look can be assembled in a few minutes and yet looks expensive.

Make Your Own Snow Globe

This is your chance to make your own personalized snow globe with your mason jars. Debbiedoos on Pinterest shared this idea. It uses fake snow and a vintage container. You can also use any whimsical figurines that you like. The globe features faux pine trees to give it a Christmas feel, but you could easily swap them for other foliage.

Cranberry is a great addition to any meal.

Margie Solberg’s floating cranberry centerpiece via Pinterest is festive enough to celebrate Christmas, but subtle enough that it can be kept out for many weeks. The warm color of the seasonal cranberries is a nice touch. The winter’s trademark leaves are represented by the evergreen branches that grow amongst the greenery.

Incorporate Some Sparkle

Consider replacing a traditional centerpiece with a cake if you are hosting a dinner party. Although this centerpiece will not last for long (you may eat it all in one night), you can use the idea at any time of the year, not just during winter. This Say Yes cake features a pipe cleaner topper in sparkly gold that incorporates metallics, which are common in winter decor.

Repurpose old wine bottles

You might end up with many wine bottles after hosting holiday parties. Instead of throwing them away, repurpose them. Delightful Details’ gold glitter centerpiece is a great way for bottles to be given a new lease of life. Spray paint and glitter are all you need to create a beautiful centerpiece that can be used for New Year’s Eve parties and will look great all year.

Use a vintage pie tin

Dagmar’s home created this adorable centerpiece using a vintage pie pan as the backdrop for a winter wonderland diorama. This is a great way of reusing a pie pan that has been too damaged or old to be used for baking. You can also find miniatures at many craft shops after the holidays. Simply add a little fake snow.

Round up Pinecones

Deer Pearl Flowers

Pinecones can be found both indoors or outdoors in winter scenes. If you have pine trees nearby, you can probably forage pinecones for decor. Pinecones can also be found at most craft shops. To create this winter-ready centerpiece, Deer Pearl Flowers needs a large hurricane candleholder and several pinecones.

Incorporate Antlers

Many people love the rustic cabin look. It evokes cozy winter vibes. This stunning design from Apple Brides features antlers to create that cozy cabin vibe. If you are in a forest area, antlers can be found at craft shops or foraged. To complete the look, add a rustic lantern to the scene and simple greenery.

Use bottles for candles

Another great way to reuse empty wine bottles is this: Abigail cheatham’s Pinterest centerpiece features melted candles placed over the bottles. It is similar to the centerpieces in cozy neighborhood restaurants. To give your table a romantic and warm feel, wrap some greenery around the bottles.

Install Twinkle Lights Anywhere

Twinkle lights can add warmth to any winter season. This glass hurricane look by Hi Miss Puff can be created in a matter of minutes. For a stunning centerpiece, add pinecones and twinkle lights (battery-powered) to a large hurricane vase.

Plant Evergreens

Mini evergreen trees can be found in many grocery stores and nurseries throughout December. This centerpiece by The Golden Sycamore shows that the trees can be used more than Christmas. The simple polka dot pot doesn’t have to be used for Christmas. The greenery and pinecones are meant to represent winter.

Use Mercury Glass

Because metallics mimic the icy glow of snow, they are common in winter decor. Mercury glass adds a touch of sparkle and glow. Most craft stores sell inexpensive votives and vessels. You can also make your own mercury glasses. For a chic, simple look, add a few sprigs or candles to the votives.

Go rustic

Home Made Beautiful

Home Made Lovely turned a simple vintage toolbox into a rustic centerpiece for this winter centerpiece. For a vintage toolbox, check thrift shops and flea markets. An old milk crate, or any other vintage box can also be used. For a wintery look, add some candles and evergreen branches.

Create a Modern Candelabra

Eugenia LaVonne Johnson via Pinterest has a rustic and modern take on a candelabra. It’s a great way for winter to bring in the harvest. You can use a vintage hat box or pie box to make the base. Then, add floral foam to hold the candlesticks in their place. To give the centerpiece the winter feel, decorate it with real or fake apples, pomegranates or cranberries.

Make a Glam Centerpiece

There are many ways you can repurpose a Tin Can, including this gorgeous centerpiece by The Knot via Pinterest. It’s very easy to make. You just need to take the label out of an empty can and spray paint it with a chic winter metallic. For a classy yet simple look, add faux or real white flowers and greenery.

Terrariums are a great option
