It’s Looking A Lot Like Christmas, So Let’s Set The Mood Shall We

An easy to put together centre piece. It emits perfecto ambience.

You will need:

A Base (I used an antique Pepsi Crate but you could use a wooden wine box, a tray…endless possibilities)

Battery operated candles (I got my from Home Depot, they are pretty cool. 3 in a pkg for 14.99). The best thing about them is you can set on the timer mode which stays on for 5 hrs shuts off for 19 then turns back on same time as the day before. I use outside as well. It says for interior use only but what are they going to do to me throw me in Home Depot jail….haha I am a rebel.

2 or 3 Plants (I used 2 small Norfolk Pine 6.99 ea at Home Depot)

Berry Sprigs (I have 3 in mine. If you go to today you can buy 1 get 50% off one & 20% off entire purchase)


Now the fun part…stick plants in & start tricking out w/Didi’s! You have just created what a florist would charge over $100.00 for under 40.00. The real beauty of this is that next year, spend 15.00 for the fresh plants & voila an inexpensive looking display for practically nothing.

Tell me how yours turned out.

Stay tuned for next Tuesday, I will show you how easy it is to build a Wintery Christmas Outside Urn. Here is one I have in my yard.
