For Christmas, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®  I made these easy Holiday Centerpiece baskets using craft supplies purchased at Walmart to help give back to my community. 

Quick and Easy Holiday Centerpiece #cbias

Each year at the Christmas my family and I like to think of a small way we can give back to our community; even if it is something small like donating to the food bank, helping a senior get out and about, or spend some time sharing our company with a person that might need a friend. When this opportunity came about to give back to the community with the help of Walmart, I knew exactly where I wanted my donation to go.

There is a local ministry in our area the Lords Ranch Ministry the farm uses animal-assisted and modern therapeutic programs to help women and children who have experienced abuse or abandonment. The charity helps these women with a safe place and supports various individuals and families through spiritual principles. The owner of this facility gives so much, I thought a holiday centrepiece may lift her spirits and show her work is not gone unseen. Plus, I had loads of supplies to make two additional small centerpieces, that would be perfect for her to share with a family that may need someone thinking of them at the holidays too.

I purchased $30 worth of craft and holiday supplies from Walmart. 1 set of wicker baskets ($12), bough garland ($2), raffia ($2), glass ornaments ($4), walnuts ($2), floral foam ($5), wreath picks ($4).

Here is how I created the Quick and Easy Holiday Centrepiece

How to create an easy Holiday Centrepiece #cbias

 

  • Hot glue floral foam into the basket.
  • Using side-cutters, snip small sections of the garland (approx 6″ long).
  • Poke the garland sections into the floral foam, until the foam is no longer visible.
  • Snip a length of wire and run through the hook of a glass ornament. Poke wire ends into foam, embellishing with ornaments.
  • Poke a bamboo BBQ sewer into the wide end of a walnut. (I painted my walnuts with glitter paint I had leftover from my Glitter Holiday Painted sign). Poke skewers into foam.
  • Add small sections of the wreath picks to fill in any bare spots.
  • Take a few strands of raffia and tie around the lip of the basket.
  • Hang a small ornament from the front side of the basket.

I shared my gift with Lisa of the Lords Ministry Ranch and she was so pleased that I thought of her, she is pictured below with children and one of her trusty steeds.

A big thanks to Walmart for making my giving back gift possible. How does your family give back to the community during the holidays? I’d love to hear your ideas!
