Every holiday season I am on the look out for a new spin on the Christmas centerpiece.
Here are a few of my favorites this year. I cannot take credit for any of them, but I do applaud the designers who made them. A note to any who attempt to construct some of these arrangements.
1. Cranberries float, so if you want to add them to water, make sure you have a lot of them.
2. A vase inside another vase is the trick to most of these. Make sure there's a space for your candy or fruit.
3. Place a large rubber band on a cylinder vase and then stick candy canes that have a bit of double sided sticky tape wrapped around their centers, under it. (this works with pencils, twigs, green beans, anything long and skinny) Tie a ribbon with a bow over the rubber band to hide it. Hot glue the candy canes to a plastic vase is another option. This is not an arrangement you want to pick up and walk around with unless those candy canes are stuck on good.
