A while back I came across a cute little centerpiece on Pinterest that I was determined to make so when I was asked to make something small and easily movable for the clubhouse tables it came to mind.
(I would give credit where credit is due but the link led to a questionable site. I’ll just leave it at that.)
This is so simple to make with one exception. It took forever to take off the plastic that covers each individual candy cane, and in the process I broke several making it necessary to purchase some more. By the time I got to the second one, I decided to leave the plastic on, which I should have done in the first place because it really doesn’t make it look any different.
So if you decide to do this, all you’ll need is a glue gun, a container of choice and candy canes. Just make sure the canes are slightly bigger than the container. Make a line of glue down the side of the container and put the candy cane on, continue until the entire container is covered. If you don’t take off the annoying plastic, this process will take around 10 minutes. If you do take it off, you’ll have it finished by Christmas 2014. 😉
I purchased these orbs at Pier I at the end of the summer and they’ve found their way into just about every tablescape I’ve made since then. They’ve super versatile, but not nearly as versatile as the wooden tray I picked up at an antique store for a song.
I made this Mod Podge bowl a few months ago, and it was so much fun and easy to do I made two more! I love how the light filters through it, don’t you? For the ‘how-to’, go here.
Although white, silver and gold are my favorite colors for holiday decorating, reds look great when wood is the primary backdrop, don’t you think?
