Unlikely partners make for a sassy centerpiece.
The platform for this ensem is a wooden mold? Dont know for sure, but I do know its cool. I decoupaged a napkin around the outside and sanded it down to give it some age.
Love the metal tag. Adds that industrial touch to something sweet.
These ittle fruit crates can be found by the dozens and on the cheap I might add. Attach a domino to the front and crate up your table ditties in a junk beautiful way.
Lovley dahlias in lab bottle. only need a few flowers to make a big impact. Thats good for the old pocket book.
My favs are the lab bottles with the little dot in the center. Youll learn that I have a passion for all things round.

I adore simple centerpieces for every day ala junk of course. Lab bottles, a wooden disk of sorts, fruit baskets, and a retro coffee pot help make a house a home.

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

I did not adhere the bottles to the stand, I simply placed them on top. That way they are free to roam about the house when they get tired of being on the table. Welcome aboard!

Take care,
