Add some sparkle to your holiday table using this easy Christmas centerpiece with ornaments!

Happy Christmas week! I know how busy this time is for many of us…baking, cooking, cleaning, and running to the grocery store more times than you would like! So, to keep things simple, I have an uncomplicated decor idea for you. This project was inspired by a glass cloche dome that I picked up at the thrift store a few months ago. You only need a few items and about ten minutes to create this Christmas decoration. I hope this easy Christmas centerpiece with ornaments is an encouragement for you!

This Christmas season I’m craving simplicity. When it came to my Christmas decor, I wanted to make a big impact without using so much stuff. The centerpiece that I’m using on my table this season came out of the idea of living simply. It’s truly nothing fancy or extravagant but there is beauty in that. Let me show you how you can achieve a simple Christmas centerpiece!

Decor Items

  • hardcover book
  • ornaments in varying sizes
  • glass cloche
  • red berry stems (optional)

 

Easy Christmas Centerpiece With Ornaments

My glass cloche was found at a local thrift store for a few dollars. It’s a tad on the small side but I really love the handle on top! I bought it to use until I come across a larger one.

If you are in a pinch and don’t have a cloche, you could use a large glass bowl turned upside down or a cake pedestal and topper.

Next, I pulled out an extra bag of ornaments. I had these in mind to use for the filler inside the cloche. The red and silver balls are vintage and the white balls are newer. a bag of Christmas ornaments for a centerpiece

I held the cloche upside down with one hand and started arranging the ornaments inside it with the other hand.

You will need to play around with getting the ornaments to fit properly. I took my ornaments in and out 5 times to get an arrangement that had alternating colors yet would sit flat once turned over.

To fill in small holes or gaps between the ornaments, you can add things such as berries or small pinecones to it if you like.

I had some extra faux red berry picks left over, so I simply cut them to size and placed them within the ornaments.

When it came to this centerpiece, I knew that this red and green vintage Christmas book was the perfect item to use for the base. If you don’t have a book, you could use a wood round, a platter, or a plate.

This next part is a bit tricky. While holding the cloche upside down with one hand, set whatever base you chose to use against the bottom of the cloche.

Then, while holding the base with one hand and the cloche with the other, flip it over!

As you can see, I left mine really unfussy. But, if you want it to be a tad more festive, you can add garland or candles around the outside of the cloche.

See?? I told you…quick and easy! You don’t need to do much to make your home feel festive and cozy this Christmas.

Closing Tidbits

May you be inspired to take this easy Christmas centerpiece with ornaments and make it your own! Whether you are being called to live simply this season or not, I hope this post encourages you to see that less can be more. By using decor pieces that you already have, just in a different way, you are creating a home that is unique, full of character, and best of all, free! May you find hope, love, joy, and peace during this special time.
