It’s not even December yet and I swear I have more tablescapes than I have time to do! I knew the first look I wanted to share with you was my frozen winter icicle table decor. With so much of the materials needed already on hand, and partly because it’s not overly Christmas themed, I thought this would make for a pleasant transition into the holiday table decor world. Without further ado, please enjoy my frozen icicle table decor for winter, which now has 3 video tutorials live and ready to show you how to recreate this look.
I mentioned earlier how a lot of the elements used in this tablescape were already on hand. Let’s see how much this cost me to make:
Most of the items in this tablescape are from the thrift store or are upcycles, but if you are in a pinch, here’s where you can scoop everything up.
For the centerpiece:
- Clear gel beads – had on hand! You can some at http://amzn.to/2A9cWgW
- *Dragon ball water gel beads are on Ebay, not Amazon yet, but you can still use pastel gel beads like these – http://amzn.to/2BmTOKt
- Glass cylinder vases – had on hand, most notably from my unicorn table decor http://amzn.to/2swg7Zt
- Plastic Icicles – picked up a whole box at an estate sale for $2 remember you need 5-10 per glass depending on the size and density – http://amzn.to/2zr4vdj
- AB / silver tinsel garland – had on hand from last year’s holiday season. Though this silver tinsel garland has holographic snowflakes and could do fine: http://amzn.to/2zrsSrD
For the table:
- Mesh – I also had on hand for last year’s holiday season as part of my snowing machine faux snow base. I think this mesh may be a little too stiff (the one I used was able to be flowy and soft), but this could work – http://amzn.to/2zt7Gl7 TIP** Look at my 4th of July Patriotic centerpiece for tips with working with deco mesh
- Blue lights – another stash from holidays past! Though I wish I had these, would have been waaayyy easier to hide the cord: http://amzn.to/2hU4bg4
- Light blue table-cloth – thrifted find that was used in my peacock tablescape, !!!!! but you can find something similar on Amazon – http://amzn.to/2zqGdQG
- Clear glass textured chargers – mine were from Goodwill with no marking, and previously used in my summer sea glass hues tablescape, but I did find 2 awesome options: http://amzn.to/2iS0pou OR for a wow set, these: http://amzn.to/2BmX88p
- Clear bud vase napkin rings – I picked up 8 pieces at my local Salvation Army for only $3, but I found the exact ones I’m using online if you want to match- http://amzn.to/2BoHSYD
- Peach napkins – the very same ones used in my sari inspired black, peach, and green tablescape. Not sure I love this particular shade, but this seller does have some other colors that I think would work beautifully – http://amzn.to/2A9242q
If you’re following along, you should see that this whole, amazing winter table decor with frozen icicles submerged in frosted goodness only set me back…… $5!
Is it just me or does knowing this make this even more of an amazing look?
My 2017 tablescape challenge has taught me so much about saving and thrifty ideas. I feel like each look is better and better.
