Casino night for my daughter softball team was coming up and I had the opportunity to make the centerpieces for the cocktail table. I wanted to make something fun, which went along with the theme, so I decided I would make a couple different ones, there was going to have 9 tables. I also wanted to keep it low cost; I was going to be donating them. Dice centerpiece was one that I came up with, along with two more so don’t forget to stop back by I have two more really fun ones.
What you will need:
- Hot Glue and glue stick
- Red Wrapping Paper
- Styrofoam Ball
- Playing Cards
- White paper
- Black Tulle
- Poker Chips
The first thing I did was make a square box using a waffle box and cereal box cut up and hot glued together.
Next, I wrapped the box in red wrapping paper. I wrapped the box so it would not show folds on the sides; here is the step by step.
First, glue the box to the middle of the wrapping paper. Next, fold two sides of the wrapping paper up and hot glued it to the box.
Then, fold the third side of the wrapping paper up to make a crease on the bottom of the wrapping paper.
Now, fold the side of the paper inward. See below.
Glue the wrapping paper to the box.
Fold the other side of the wrapping paper inward and you will have a solid side with the folds hidden. Glue the wrapping paper to the box.
Repeat on the other side of the box and you will have a finished wrapped box.
Now back to creating the centerpieces, cut the Styrofoam ball in half and glue it to the inside of the box.
I filled the box with tulle that I folded and glued to the inside of the box along with some metallic basket filler. I glued poker chips to the tulle. I glued playing cards with and Ace and a face card to represent Black Jack to skewers and placed them in the middle of the centerpieces.
Once, I had that finished, I punched out 1″ circle out of white paper and used a glue stick to glue them to the sides of the boxes to look like dice. I would recommend doing this before you fill them, I couldn’t find my hole punch so I did this step last.
Here is the finished Dice Centerpieces!
Don’t forget to come back by to see the other two centerpieces I create.
