Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Preparing the Work Space
Before you begin to create your very own homemade centerpiece for your table, you should prepare both your equipment and the space you will be working in. First, you are going to need to sanitize the equipment that you are going to need. You will just need to simply wash your small bowl and the mixing spoon. Next, you will need to protect your work surface. So, you will want to use either the wax paper or the newspaper to cover up the surface you will be working on. This will protect your surface from the liquid glue and fragrance oil. Furthermore, you will love that covering up your work surface will make clean up easier for you after you are done! Now, we are prepared for this craft and ready to get started on your homemade centerpiece creation.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Picking Out Your Branches
Now, you are going to need to pick out the tree branches that you are going to be using for this unique table centerpiece idea. Before you go out into the wilderness and find your raw materials, you may want to choose the vase that you are going to use for this project. This will be the vase that will hold your scented and glittered branches. After you have found the vase that you want to use, you will know about the size you will need for your twigs. So, you will be able to locate the branches that you are going to need and will definitely use. This will make sure that the glittered branches can be used in your vase. Also, we recommend that you find branches that go in all kinds of different directions. This will help make your centerpiece more interesting and fill out your vase.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Prepare the Liquid Glue
Next, you are going to get the liquid craft glue ready to use for your Christmas centerpiece craft. You are going to need about 2 ounces of liquid glue to cover all of your tree branches. When choosing your glue, you can choose from a variety of different types of craft glue. Just make sure that the glue is liquid and will dry clear. So, you will weigh out the 2 ounces of liquid craft glue into a small mixing bowl. Also, the amount of glue you need depends on the size and amount of branches that you use. So, you may need more or less glue. But, the amount that we used for our own tree branch centerpiece is a good starting place for your project. You can create more of the liquid glue mixture later if you happen to run out of this mixture while you are covering the tree branches.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil
Now, you can add the fragrance oil to your liquid craft glue. So, you will take the Christmas Tree Fragrance Oil and measure about 2 mL of this scented oil for the glue mixture. You can use one of the disposable pipettes to weigh out the amount fragrance oil that you will need. Then, you will need to add this scented oil to the liquid glue that you had already weighed into the small mixing bowl. After this delightful aroma has been added to the glue you can mix these two ingredients together. After your mixture is finished you are ready to use this mixture to coat your tree branches.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Coating the Tree Branches
After your scented glue mixture has been created, you are ready to start adding this mixture to your branches. We would recommend coating each tree branch in separate portions. Coating your branches with this method will ensure that the glue mixture doesn’t dry before you have the chance to add the glitter. So, use your paint brush to coat a section of one of your branches and move on to the next step. Further, you can add more of your scented glue mixture to your tree branch to make sure that you get enough glue on the branches. You don’t necessarily need to completely coat your branches, but you are going to want a light, even dusting of your glitter. Again, adding glue to touch up the design’s glitter won’t harm your creation. In fact, this extra glue mixture will add to the aroma of the recipe and make the overall scent a bit stronger.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Adding the Glitter
Next, you will be ready to sprinkle your freshly glued tree branches with glitter. Also, you will only need to add glitter to the glue coated section of the tree branch for each time your switch between the glue mixture and glitter. We decided to use a more chunky, silver glitter because it was perfect for the vase and our home décor. But, you can change the color or the size of your glitter to match your home and the vase you decided to use. Once you have your preferred style glitter picked out, you can start to shake your glitter over your glue coated branch sections. Just make sure that you cover all the way around your branch because you don’t want to forget to add glitter to the back of your tree branches. Now, you will need to repeat the process of coating your branches in the glue mixture and sprinkling glitter. Once all your tree branches are coated with both your scented glue and your glitter, you are ready to move on to the next step.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Drying the Branches
Once all of your tree branches are coated with scented glue and glitter, you are nearly finished creating your homemade table decoration! All you need to do now is wait for the glue to completely dry. This will make sure that you don’t smudge the glue or glitter before it has time to harden and set. You can leave your branches overnight if you would prefer to make sure that your branches are completely dried. But, you can simply wait until the glue has turned completely clear. Elmer’s craft glue can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours or so before it is completely dry. Honestly, the amount of time that you will need to wait will depend on the amount of the glue mixture that you added to your branches. After the glue mixture on your tree branches is completely dried, you are ready to move on to the last part of creating your homemade table centerpiece.
Scented Twig Centerpiece Recipe: Adding the Finishing Touches
Finally, you are ready to assemble your lovely table centerpiece. Since your tree branches are completely dry, you are ready to begin using these branches. If you enjoy things like flower arrangements, then this part of the recipe is going to be the most fun! So, start placing your glamourized branches into the vase and start arranging until you feel that your centerpiece is balanced. Feel free to add extra branches if you have too much extra space. Further, you don’t have to use all of the branches that you have worked on. Just arrange your branches until your centerpiece looks right to you!
