DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece

I’ve been wanting to create a DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece for my mantel for quite some time.  I finally figured out what I wanted to do, and found the time to do it!  It all started as an excuse  pick up a few four packs of Starbucks Iced Coffee and an excuse to go to Michaels.  No, I didn’t really NEED an excuse, but anyway!  After I polished off my Iced Coffee, I removed the bottle labels and sent the bottles through the dishwasher.  I put the caps in my craft supplies, as I have another idea in mind for them.

How to Turn Iced Coffee Bottles into a Centerpiece

I cut strips of colored burlap long enough to slightly overlap, then used my hot glue gun to secure them onto the bottles. Once I had my bottles wrapped and my flowers cut the way I wanted them, I set them aside and used my diecutting machine to cut out the letters from chipboard.  If you don’t have a cutting machine like mine, you can pick up chipboard letters at your local craft store.  Then I used hot glue to affix them to my wrapped bottles, let it dry, and then put them on my mantel for display!

Eeek!  It turned out so well! I’ll be using this one for years to come!

  1. Oh! I love those! I love seeing all the different things you can make with them! I have an the very first version of the Cricut and just upgraded to the new one! I cannot wait for my office to be done because I am dying to play with mine and get it out of the box!

  2. That is a great craft! I think I could probably handle this. But first I need to finally take down the Halloween decorations!

  3. This is such a cute centerpiece! I really want one of these machines. At least I think I do. I am afraid I won’t get anything done because I will be too busy crafting LOL

  4. I really like that centerpiece you made! What a great idea for reusing iced coffee bottles.

  5. Oh wow! That did turn out so good!! I like.

    Gosh…I don’t know what I would make with the Cricut, but I know I want one! I’d probably use it for scrapbooking!

  6. Isn’t that nifty? I think the bottles turned out cute. I am not sure what I would make – I am not that familiar with cricut.

  7. Oh that’s cute! I love how it turned out! I don’t know what I’d make.

  8. Oh, I love the way these turned out. This makes me want to drag my Cricut out and dust it off! I could totally see some twine wrapped around them as well.

  9. How neat! I don’t have one of these, but I have heard people rave and rave about them. I can easily see why. By the way, I love how you have everything decorated on the shelf. 🙂

  10. That turned out really cute and it seems like it really was simple. I have always wanted a Cricut they are super helpful for the crafting challenged like myself.

  11. I LOVE that! So simple but so pretty! Super cute. I labeled everything in the house when I got mine LOL

  12. I love your centerpiece! I’m a scrapbooker and I’ve always wanted a Cricut. I’d use it for making titles on my pages and I’m sure a lot more.

  13. What a beautiful centerpiece and what a fun machine! I want a Cricut Explore lol… I could thinks of dozens of projects I could make with (or without) my girls 🙂

  14. What a cute idea. I would put fresh daisies or mums in the vases 🙂

  15. I don’t have Starbucks bottles but I have been saving my spaghetti sauce bottles. Maybe I can use those to do this. Thanks for the idea.

  16. That is so creative! I LOVE that it’s simple and yet such a classy centerpiece to show off in one’s home. I would to try and make a Give Thanks banner too,
