Quick and Easy Christmas Centerpiece

Quick and Easy Christmas Centerpiece


Need something on your side table, coffee table, or anywhere, why not create a cranberry candle centerpiece. I needed three for the round tables that we set up on our deck for our annual Christmas party. I knew I wanted candles, but didn't want to spend a lot and I didn't want them to take up too much room. 

I looked in my stash and the fridge to see what might work. This is what I came up with.

Tutorial for making Christmas Lollipops and Christmas Pole

Last week I showed you my Grandinroad Hack - Wooden Christmas Present. I displayed the box with my lollipops and Christmas pole.

These lollipops are adorable and so easy to make and you might already have all most of the materials. 

You will be surprised that I made the lollipops with pool noodles and PVC pipe.

Cheering up the light

I am continuing my Christmas decorating on the cheap at our other home. I made the JOY banner, the book page banners for the windows and now for the dining room light. 

This was very easy and rather cheap. I saw this light decorated on Pinterest for Christmas and for some reason it stayed with me. So when I had finished my banners, the light looked so plain. I still had some berries left and the light called to me.

Adding the holidays to wire baskets

In many parts of the country, the hanging baskets have been put away. However, here in Florida, mine stay up all year. Usually this time of year, I don't have potted plants in my baskets since the selection is minimal with holiday flowers in demand. So what to do with those wire baskets?

Decorate them of course.  Many of you have pine trees where you can get fresh pine, but here not so much or at least not the good kind. I went to Home Depot and they had two carts filled with pine branches that they trimmed off the trees and said I could have all I wanted. Yeah!! 

Free pine branches are added to wire hanging baskets.

Holiday Mason Jars

It seems that so many of us just love mason jars, myself included. They are so great to decorate with.  I have many from my Grandmother which I try to keep separate. About 5 years ago when I lived in Pittsburgh, I drove to Vermont to visit my grand kids in the summer. That year I went to a garage sale late one afternoon. They still had many items to sell and I think they were getting tired. 

There were three boxes of mason jars. Needless to say, I was on them immediately. She had them priced at $5 per box. I am not sure how many were in each box - somewhere between 10 - 14 each. Some were large, but most of them were the small ones and all had their lids, like the ones in my picture below.

She saw me looking at them and said, "you can have all of them for $5". I tried not to fall over and grabbed them up before anyone else did. Since there was only one other person there, I was pretty safe.
