Centerpiece and decor on a budget

So this is what I showed you 
Just scrap wood and paint. 
Now it comes the fun part of making a statement centerpiece.
I used one of the twine bottles I made here.
Wine corks that I have been stashing away...
A large wine glass from a set a friend gave me several
years ago

A tin can I had,
 and various decorative balls

I played with various  heights and textures.
Glass, metal, twine, cork, see through and solid...I like to mix.
For this centerpiece I used free recycled materials (tin can, glass bottle, corks) and few things I already had (wine glass, glass pillar and decorative balls)
So, no money has been spent in the making of this, and even the wood board was made from free scraps.
My favorite!

Stay Frugal,

Love the mix of materials - and the neutral palette. When I see this, I love that you spent zero on it, and I love that you must have enjoyed many meals with a nice glass of wine from all the corks! :)

Nice use of recycled materials! It looks lovely! I keep telling myself to save the corks but seems I always forget! Going to make a point to do it now!! Traci

Very very cute! And so satisfying to use stuff you already have!

I like the mix of textures too! Love those twine wrapped bottles of yours. One of these days I need to give that a try!

I love the twine bottles! Plus, what's not to love about a centerpiece with 2 references to wine in it:)

That looks great. I love how you mixed your textures. It has a much more interesting look and gives it a lot of depth and character.

I love the large trivet and assortment of textures and pieces atop the trivet. Perfection!
