Are busy decorating for Christmas? Let me show you two easy & beautiful craft projects for a farmhouse style table.
I have been in full swing of holiday decorating over here at White Lilac Farmhouse.
This year I have made a lot of my holiday decorations. My kitchen table centerpiece and napkin rings were made in a matter of minutes.
You will often hear me say that I am all about simple, easy projects! These two projects for a farmhouse style table are very easy to do.
Project 1 – Farmhouse Style Table Center Piece
- Large 32 or 64 ounces jar
- Three cups of Epson Salt
- House that lights up or tea light can be used (my house was approximately 8″ tall)
- Two bottle brush trees (taller than your house)
- Timer Tea Light
What I love about this project, it can go on the counter, the center of a table or book shelf.
First pour approximately three cups of Epson Salt into the jar. With my hands, I broke up any lumps in the salt. I gave the jar a good shake to smooth it out.
The best part about using Epson Salt is it will glisten in the sunlight. The salt is more coarse and works great as flake snow.
Next a ceramic house with a tea light on a timer was added inside the jar. How cute would a snowman tea light look or add a couple of deer.
I found a package of two different color bottle brush trees at target. The link is under my resources below. They were the perfect size and were only $5.
I just love how beautiful this project turned out.
Project 2 – Easy napkin rings
- Four Jingle Bells
- Evergreen Floral Pick – Cut some branches off
- Quick Drying Tacky Glue
Cut your twine to the length you prefer. You will be tying it around the napkin in a bow. I trimmed the end of my evergreen branch at the bottom.
Lay your twin flat and place the evergreen branch in the center and tie it.
Add one jingle bell to the twine and push it to the center.
Let’s add one drop of Quick Drying Tacky Glue on the center tie. You will need to hold the jingle bell for a minute. It will set within a minute.
You will need to set them aside for 30 minutes to let the glue dry.
You will the twine around the napkin and tie it. Any extra tails from your bow can be trimmed.
FINAL Table Setting
This easy napkin ring ties in well with the place setting and centerpiece.
Don’t you just love simple craft projects?

Such a cute table and projects! Loving it!
You are so sweet, Leslie. Thank you so much.
Great ideas, my beautiful friend.
Thank you, Renae. I am keeping this simple here.
I just love the napkin rings you made. So simple, inexpensive and pretty. Nice job, Tammy! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks, Kim. I try to use what I have on hand first. Napkin rings can get expensive. Set of four $15.95 and with large families that’s too much money. Why not make your own cheaper.
I just love putting little things into jars! I don’t know what it is, but it’s one of my favorite things! And these napkin rings are so cute too!
Thank you so much, Danielle. I am the same way.
