LED Lighted Christmas Centerpiece for your Table

Lighted Christmas centerpiece

I wanted to use these tall vases to bring some light and ornaments to my Christmas table. I use these vases all the time for DIY centerpiece projects, and combining them with waterproof LED lights provided for an easy and pretty tablescape.

Here are the supplies for the project.

First, I cut a 6ft decorated garland into two 3 ft pieces, since I was making two vases. The garland looked like Christmas tree branches and had red berries attached, as well as pinecones.

I placed the waterproof LED puck light at the bottom of the tall vase and added a piece of ribbon around the vase to hide the puck light. This waterproof light is something I also use often. It takes 2 aa batteries, has a remote control and changes light color, and always creates a festive atmosphere.

I’ve also created a holiday centerpiece with fairy lights instead and you can view that one here if you’d like another great idea for using tall vases at the center of the table.

Add ornaments on top of that. I used gold Christmas ornaments, but it would also look great with red ornaments or whatever best suits your Christmas tablescape.

Next I added my garland, filling it in with more ornaments wherever I had open spaces.

It really started to come alive once I added water. The ornaments floated and the water lets the puck light shine more.

You can see how the light shines from under the ornaments. I also ended up adding a second light at the top so that the entire tall vase looks illuminated.

I love this Christmas table centerpiece and the way you can see the pine cones in white and the light shining through the garland.

Here’s how it looks on my dining table. I alternate between setting the light to green, or red, or yellow, so it always looks a little different every night.

Next, I’ll be working on the place settings and other Christmas table decorations. So please check back to see the final holiday table and other holiday decor throughout the house. 

Here’s a video of the process as well!
