Add high impact to your next tablescape design with this traditional DIY centerpiece with a twist, by Steven Sabados. Don't let the greenery deter you – it's budget friendly and you don't need to be a florist to make it look amazing.

What you'll need:

  • Champagne bucket or an urn
  • Foam ball (not the green floral kind)
  • Knife
  • Sheet moss (found at craft stores, plant stores, or the cottage)
  • Glue gun
  • Plant
  • Floral spray (optional)


1.Start with a foam sphere that will fit in your champagne bucket or selected vessel. Carve a hole into the top of the foam. You'll be placing your plant in here later so you'll want the hole to be big enough to fit the base of the plant.

2.Cover the foam ball with moss using hot glue. Then, place the foam ball into the champagne bucket and begin to fill in holes and gaps with your moss.

3. Place the plant into the hole in the foam. You may have to adjust the moss so you can't see the base of the plant, and make sure to fill in any gaps. If your moss has brown spots, use floral spray to cover them up. The spray will also keep the moss from drying out.

There you have it! It doesn't take much time to create a great centerpiece that will add some style to any table.
