DIY Summer Centerpieces for a Vintage Garden Wedding

This centerpiece could not be any easier and it will look striking on your tables. Most of the materials can be bought at the nearby dollar store. You will need terracota plates, glasses, terracota or plastic pots and your favorite flowers.
Make sure that the pots are filled with soil. That will make them sturdier and stronger enough to carry the weight of the top levels. Place the glasses with flowers evenly around each terracota plate. If you are crafty and want to turn these centerpieces into a permanent garden decor, you may drill through the plates (the pots already have holes) and secure a stick – a broom stick will do – all the way through.
