Turn A Colander Into A Centrepiece

Give your guests something to remember by creating a unique centrepiece using a colander 

Turn A Colander Into A Centrepiece

With a little imagination and creativity, everyday items can be turned into unique decorations 

Dotted with holes for draining, this everyday cooking tool makes a perfectly charming luminary for your kitchen or dining table. Turn a silver or coloured metal colander upside down and place a small battery-operated candle underneath to create pinpoints of light. On top, use the base of the inverted colander to hold an array of shimmering ball ornaments, pinecones or potpourri. 

Want another fun option for the top of your colander luminary? Instead of finishing it off with an arrangement of ball ornaments, create an even brighter glow by adding a votive candle, or tealight candle with a holder, on top of the inverted base.
