Coral Centerpieces?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can purchase fake coral large enough to use as a centerpiece ( I would prefer it to be tan or white colored )? I would much rather buy it at a store and not online, so if anyone has seen them at any stores, can you tell me where? Here's an example of what I'm looking for-

I have been searching too but have not found a thing anywhere around Philadelphia. I did, however, attempt to make some this weekend based on this article I found...

I bought premixed stucco patch at Lowes and mixed it in a bucket with little bits of water until it formed a thick brownie batter consistency. Then we dipped the sticks in and smeared the goop on with rubber gloves. Some needed a second coat but they definitely look coral-like. I think if I tried wiring some together, dipping them again and maybe giving them a coat of paint, they would look more like the cluster kind like you posted.

I'm going to just put little pieces by candles and seashells on the tables. Hope that helps!
