5 Quick and Easy DIY Centerpiece Ideas Perfect For Any Occasion

While looking for easy-to-do centerpiece ideas, I came across several that were perfect for anyone looking for unique DIY centerpiece ideas they could create themselves for a wedding, holiday party, birthday party, or anniversary celebration.

I wanted to find arrangements that anyone, no matter their experience level, could do. And I wanted the cost to be reasonable.

I did find several centerpiece ideas shared by some of the best wedding and home decor bloggers that would work well.

Caterpillar Vase Arrangement


The first is an easy idea using this versatile glass caterpillar vase. It’s dead-simple to do, even for a novice, and it only takes a few flowers.

The example pictured uses a few garden blooms but could be done with any type of flowers.

If you have a small budget, this is a perfect idea for a small table accent. Because the vase is unique, it’s certain to be a conversation starter!

You can find more information on the caterpillar vase here.

DIY Flower Arrangement


Another one of the DIY centerpiece ideas I ran across was this simple arrangement of white hyacinth stems, arranged in decorative milk jugs with a wire basket.

This arrangement can be created in less than 15 minutes, with a minimum flower cost.

One tip is to always select flowers that have healthy looking foliage on the stem, as that can also be used as additional filler in your arrangement.

Using a rectangular basket like the one pictured, it a perfect centerpiece for a rustic bridal table, or dinner table for a more intimate gathering.

This arrangement featuring yellow tulips, alstroemeria, and peonies, is one of the DIY centerpiece ideas I found that might be a little more advanced, but still doable for the newbie designer as well.

It uses a grid to hold the flowers in the shallow bowl, which is a technique that anyone who arranges flowers should have in their arsenal.

Perfect arrangement style to use on round guest tables at a wedding or event.

This arrangement is probably better suited for the home, but the technique can easily be applied when doing multiple centerpieces for a wedding or event.

Not the least expensive of the centerpiece ideas featured here, but not every arrangement you do can always be done on the cheap. Sometimes you just need to make a statement.

This arrangement delivers that message, loud and clear.
