Winter Table Decorations

See how to decorate your winter table with homemade crafts inspired by the great outdoors.

Allrecipes and Better Homes & Gardens are teaming up to bring you easy ideas for stylish winter decorations.


Branch Out

To craft the charming chandelier (pictured above) spray a tree branch with white paint and let dry. Clip on white songbird figurines (available at crafts stores). Hang the branch from your ceiling with removable adhesive hooks and two ropes. Use fishing line to hang tea-light holders or battery-powered votives to the branch.


    Mason Jar Lights

    Place a sprig of greenery at the bottom of a glass canning jar, and fill two-thirds full with water. Add cranberries and a floating candle.


    Sparkling Vines

    This grapevine-and-berries napkin ring adds holiday charm to your table settings. Wrap wired faux berries around a grapevine ring, then brush them with clear-drying glue. Sprinkle the berries with glitter to give them a little sparkle. Add sprigs of greenery to the grapevine on either side of the berries.


    Sweet Snowflakes

    Turn plain glass dessert plates into winter-worthy creations. First, wash and dry the plates to remove any grease or fingerprints. On the underside of each plate, draw snowflake patterns with a white oil-base paint and let dry. Plates should be hand-washed gently, taking care to not scrub off the snowflakes.


    Snow Light

    Snow-dusted candles give off a magical Christmas glow. To make them, pour Epsom salts onto a rimmed tray, and mix in glitter. Using a foam brush, apply a layer of decoupage medium to the side of a white pillar candle. Make sure the glue stays away from top edge of the candle so the salts and glitter stay clear of the wick. While the glue is still wet, lay the candle in the salt-and-glitter mixture. Roll until the side of the candle is covered with faux snow. Once dry, arrange snow-covered candles on a tray. To complete the scene, dust the tray with faux snow and adorn with berries and greenery.
