I took on the task of making the centerpieces for my brother-in-laws “life” party over the weekend. I really wanted to do something simple that incorporated the beach. I also wanted to keep it cheap. I think I did a pretty good job.
Take Vellum paper and print whatever picture you’re going to use. Make sure to measure the container that you’re using. I printed my pictures a 4″x 4″ size. I was able to print 4 pictures on one paper @ $1 a paper.
Decorate the rim of the cylinder. This is optional but makes a big difference. I used ti leaf to go with the theme of the party.
Put the picture in the container. I do this before filling the container. I printed my picture in black and white, but I think color would be beautiful too.
Fill your container and add a tea light. I filled mine with sand, but if it were for a girl I think some plastic beads would be pretty.
