DIY: Table Centerpiece - Decor For The Holidays

During the holiday season, I love to add a little something special to our dining room table. This season I wanted to add a D.I.Y. centerpiece. My inspiration for this project was my son's obsession with sticks. Yes, I said STICKS! He has been collecting sticks for awhile now and a few pine cones a long the way. He insists on bring every stick he finds home and we have compiled quite a collection. So, I asked him if I could use some of his sticks for a project I wanted create. He said, "YES". Hooray, now I could finally put those sticks we've been collecting to good use! Off I went to create something special for our table. What do you think? Cute, right...

Here is how I created the centerpiece. 
D.I.Y. TABLE DECOR CENTERPIECE
Supplies you will need for this centerpiece craft project: 
Pine cones
Sticks
Glitter spray paint
Clear Sealer spray
Glue gun
twine
Empty paper towel roll
Wrapping paper
Double sided tape
Scissors

GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES FOR THIS PROJECT.
SPRAY PAINT STICKS AND PINE CONES WITH GLITTER SPRAY PAINT. AFTER DRYING, SPRAY CLEAR SEALER TO PROTECT THE PINE CONES AND STICKS.
WHILE THE STICKS AND PINE CONES ARE DRYING - CUT PAPER ROLL DOWN THE CENTER.
WRAP THE ROLL IN PRETTY PAPER. I USED A BLACK AND WHITE DAMASK PATTERN WARPING PAPER. TAPE THE PAPER ON THE INSIDE OF THE ROLL.
ASSEMBLE THE STICKS BY HOT GLUING TOGETHER AND WRAPPING THE TWINE AROUND THE STICKS AT THE  INTERSECTING POINTS.
ASSEMBLE THE PINE CONES TO THE WRAPPED PAPER TOWEL ROLL BY HOT GLUING IN PLACE. THREAD THE RIBBON AROUND THE ROLL AND TIE A BOW.
VOILA! A HAND CRAFTED CENTERPIECE FOR YOUR DINING ROOM TABLE.
Thank you all for a great FIRST year! It has been amazing so far. I am looking forward to next year and I know it will be even better!  
Happy Holidays and have a great NEW YEAR!!
