Did you catch our Spring orange brunch on The Sip earlier this week? The centerpiece for this party is an easy DIY that adds a lot of personality to your table. All you need are a few supplies from your local craft store and oranges.
Oranges with Leaves (smaller mandarin or clementine oranges work the best)
Extra Orange Leaves
Step 1// Gather your supplies. Start with your desired vase you want to use for your centerpiece. I found this blue and white vase at a local interior design shop. Purchase a styrofoam cone and discs that fit into the vase. I took my vase with me to the craft store to ensure a perfect fit.
Step 2// Place styrofoam discs inside the vase. Place toothpicks in the discs then top with the styrofoam cone and make sure it is sturdy since the oranges will add extra weight. You could also use hot glue to keep the discs and cone together.
Step 3// Beginning at the bottom of the cone use toothpicks at an angle to place oranges around the styrofoam cone. I staggered the oranges to try to cover the majority of the styrofoam. Poke one end of the toothpick into the styrofoam cone, then the other into the orange. Make sure the oranges all face the same direction and are similar sizes.
Step 4// Go back and ensure there are no large holes showing where you could add another orange and move oranges around until you have your desired look. Then using straight pins, pin the extra orange leaves in the empty places on the cone where the oranges do not cover the styrofoam.
