D.I.Y. Centerpieces and Candles for the Holidays
Cheap alternatives and D.I.Y. projects are in. Instead of going out to purchase fancy expensive centerpieces for your home, try making your own decorations this year. All you need are some everyday items and a little patience and creativity. Of course, we’re also here to offer some ideas and inspiration (wink).
Firstly, collect all your jars, vases, and glassware. You can use just about any kind of glassware for decorations–the more variation, the better (think visual interest, folks).
Some unique pieces include the Fred and Friends DRINKUP Carafe and Glass and Glass Zipper Bag. Just dress them up with the following fillers.
