Create This Look – Rustic Log Centrepiece

We have a super simple DIY project that will transform any rustic style country/garden wedding.  This is the perfect way to get your Groom involved as he gets to use his power tools!  And you get a stunning centrepiece for your wedding that can then be used in your home as a lovely reminder of your special day.

Things you will need:

  • Log of Wood
  • Drill
  • 16mm Drill Bit
  • Test Tubes
  • Flowers of your Choice
  • Funnel (optional)

things you need Blog

Step One:
Drill holes along the top of the log, wherever you would like the test tubes filled with flowers to go.

Step Two:
Carefully twist each test tube into each holes you have drilled, and fill with water.

Step Three:
Trim flowers stems and arrange the flowers however you wish in the test tubes. This style of centrepiece suits a more relaxed, casual arrangement.

Log Steps

We were lucky to recently have a neighbour cut down a tree and therefore had this wonderful long branch to use.  If you couldn't get any branches this would also work on normal timber you can get from places like Mitre 10.  If you did want to use timber but not new pieces a good place to try is The Timber Recycling Company, or similar places that have demolition wood.
