Growing up, my mom never missed decorating our home for the holidays. Not just Christmas and Halloween but every holiday, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day – you name it we had decor to celebrate it. Well, I try to carry on that tradition, even if just in a small way, in my small apartment.
This year, I wanted to have a little fun while keeping it minimal. And so e the couch is truly the heart of my apartment, I thought it was a great idea to create a centerpiece for my coffee table.
I love terra-cotta and wanted to bring the color into this arrangement. And true to me, I also wanted to make sure to incorporate some greenery. The result – an Easter gardenscape candle holder.
This is a perfect DIY Easter decor project for all my plant ladies who have extra terra-cotta laying around.

How to create your centerpiece
The beautiful thing about this project is that it is really DIY-light project. There’s no wrong way to put it together!
I separated my moss, pulling pieces to go into the terra-cotta. I filled it about an inch tall and folded all of the loose ends under.
I hadn’t planned to add the candle, but after placing faux eggs on the moss. So, I ended up placing a candle in the center of the arrangement.
I DIYed the candle in the arrangement – check out that project here!
Last, I layered a few more items from my collection. I placed on of my dinners lates under the terra-cotta and then rattan placemat as a base.
