I don't consider myself very creative but I was recently inspired by a lovely lady to make a Christmas centerpiece. She used many items with sentimental value and great memories attached. Also, she used many organic items such as branches, berries, pine cones and water. I was in awe of how simply yet beautifully she crafted these centerpieces in mere minutes so I thought I would give it a whirl.
First I bought something to start with, I went to a second hand store and pick up this beautiful rectangle red metal tray for $4.99 and while I was there I spotted a set of ornaments (red & orange with gold) for $.99. I then went through my own ornaments and picked up what I thought would go with it and put it all together. In the end, it did not cost me much and it brightens up my table. :)
Thank you Tanya Payzant for the inspiration!
