A Rustic Wedding Centrepiece – Copper LED String Lights in a Jar on a Wood Slab
Today I did a test run of what our centrepieces will look like for our wedding reception. That’s right, I’m married – my husband and I did the sneaky and eloped to San Francisco earlier this year and had a trip of a lifetime in California!
My father in law kindly helped out making the wood slices with his electric saw, he made light work of it! I now have four beautiful hard wood slabs, a decent collection of up-cycled jars (view the tutorial here) and LED silver copper string lights to create clusters like this one, to spread down one very long table. Imagine babies breath in place of the plastic fantastic bouquet I’ve used, and you can get a glimpse of how pretty it’s going to look on the day.
I can’t express how happy I am with the total look, what do you think?
I wrapped some gold washi tape around the base of a normal tea light candle, this is an easy way to add a pop of colour if you wanted too.
The silver copper is waterproof and can be fully submerged, just don’t try it with the battery pack as that is not waterproof. The strings measure out to 5 metres (or 5 yards) and takes 3 x AA batteries.
You can purchase them here via Etsy.
I have wrapped the battery pack in a scrap piece of burlap to disguise once in the jar.
