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.

Try different color combinations of ornaments in clear vases. 

Add different elements to your decor, like long branches.

Idea #3: Pine Cones

Add ribbons, spray paint, and doilies for fun.
