White plate (Dollar Store)

Battery operated miniature lights (Dollar Store)

Batteries (Dollar Store)

Sparkly Christmas décor picks (Dollar Store, I used two champagne colored picks; one is an sparkly pine ‘branch’ and one is a sparkly leaf ‘branch’)

Artificial Wreath (had on hand)


Wire (had on hand)

3 limes

Pillar candle (had on hand)

Candle holder (had on hand)

Hot Glue Gun


  • Insert batteries into lights.  Wrap lights evenly around wreath, hiding battery compartment at the back of the wreath.  Secure battery compartment onto wreath with wire:  Cut a 10 inch piece of wire and wrap around battery compartment and wreath to secure.
  • Cut each decorative pick into smaller pieces.
  • Glue ends of picks around wreath, using hot glue gun. I divided my artificial branches into 3 groups and glued them on evenly around the wreath.
  • Cut a 10 inch piece of wire for each lime and fold in half.  At the half way point wrap wire around end of toothpick leaving 4-5 inches of wire at ends.
  • Insert opposite end of toothpick into lime, securing firmly.
  • Wrap wire around wreath to secure toothpick and limes, hiding ends of the wire.
  • Set wreath on plate.
  • Place pillar candle on candle holder and place on the plate in the middle of the wreath.

Love the champagne color of the sparkly leaves and pine!DIY Dollar Store Christmas Centerpiece from Setting for Four #Christmas #Dollar Store #Centerpiece #DIY #Tutorial #Kitchen #Table #Candle

I love how using fresh fruit like limes ties this centerpiece into my kitchen!  If your wreath is larger you could even use pomegranates or apples…DIY Dollar Store Christmas Centerpiece from Setting for Four #Christmas #Dollar Store #Centerpiece #DIY #Tutorial #Kitchen #Table #Candle

    1. Me too Katie! This is so easy and inexpensive to make!

  2. How pretty! I love that it lights up and I love the little limes, they add a natural touch to the sparkliness! (I know that's not a word...but it fits!)

    1. Thanks Danni! I do love the sparkle and the color of the limes are so pretty!

  3. Nice! I just love a good dollar store project! Can you believe I haven't been yet this Christmas? Unheard of! You've just got me all excited for my new kitchen table that'll be arriving in 2 weeks now. I think I'm going to copy your limes!

  4. Love the cheerful limes and the twinkly lights ... great job!

  5. I need to find myself some battery operated lights! I wandered through the dollar store last night and hardly found anything....your dollar store must be better than ours. Love your little centrepiece though, the limes are great.

  6. I love the combination of evergreens and fruit. It's one of my favorite looks. I just love that you got that entire look from the Dollar Tree. That's great!

  7. Beautiful Heather. I love the battery lights, and must get some too. Thanks for joining our party.

  8. Simple. Classic. Absolutely beautiful! LOVE!

  9. So pretty and so thrifty! Love the additional color pop of the limes!
