There are many reasons why you may be interested in DIY centerpieces; saving money is one, but many enjoy flower arranging, and inviting guests or celebrating an event is another good reason to do something you love.
There are also many types of centerpiece – candle centerpieces are very popular, and among the simplest of DIY ideas. You can simply float a flower in a vase, or combine the candle idea with fruit as we did in these very simple centerpiece ideas.
