Skiing centrepieces are unusual decorations inspired by the chill, speed and fun of the winter sport. But these themed decorations are not the sort of thing you can find in a store. You need to combine some creativity, time and effort to make an impressive skiing centrepiece by hand. Fortunately, skiing is a versatile enough theme that there are centrepiece crafts available for any skill level.

Pine Cone Man Centerpiece
Turn a giant pine cone into an adorable skiing man for a centrepiece with an earthy style. The centrepiece consists of a large pine cone body with wood bead head and two googly eyes. Felt covered wooden skewers form the pine cone man's arms and tiny wooden beads form his hands. Large, painted craft sticks provide the colourful skis and painted wooden skewers provide the poles. Decorations for the centrepiece can include a felt hat, felt scarf and wooden bead boots.
Candy Cane Snowman Centerpiece
Combine plastic candy canes and wooden balls to create a cheerful centrepiece of a skiing snowman. The snowman consists of a large, medium and small wood balls stacked into a snowman shape. White paint covers the balls for a snowy look and tiny black beads form the snowman's eyes and mouth. A painted, carrot-shaped piece of wood forms the snowman's nose and wooden skewers with short toothpick fingers form his arms and hands.
Large plastic candy canes provide two skis under the snowman's bottom ball and two poles in his wooden hands. Decorations for the centrepiece can include a dusting of fake snow, a felt hat, felt mittens, a knitted scarf and aluminium foil goggles. The centrepiece can sit flat on the table for a simple look or sit on a flat pile of craft stuffing for a snowy hill look.
Skiing Bouquet Centerpiece
Create a hill-shaped flower bouquet with plastic skiing figurines for a centrepiece that looks like a ski hill. The bouquet consists of tightly packed, small white carnations covering a large foam ball with a flat bottom. Small, plastic, skiing figurine cake decorations on wooden skewers stick up from the foam base so that the figurines appear to be skiing across the flowers.
Ski Boot Bouquet Centerpiece
Transform a single ski boot into an unusual vase for a simple skiing centrepiece. A spray-shaped bouquet consisting of white carnations, light blue carnations, baby's breath, white-tipped ivy and sparkling white snowflakes on wires fill the buckled boot for a festive style. A light dusting of glitter or fake snow across the boot and flowers adds an icy accent to the centrepiece.
Silvery Skiing Centerpiece
Keep things simple with a poster board, tinsel and foil skiing centrepiece. The middle of the centrepiece consists of a foam block with a tall spray of silver and white snowflake-covered tinsel rods springing from the top. Silver foil paper wraps around the block and gathers tightly around the bottom of the rods. A piece of white poster board cut into a skier's silhouette decorates each side of the block.
