DIY Christmas Centerpiece and DIY Holiday HighLights

This was my Christmas centerpiece last year.  I loved it.  I mixed fresh pine clippings, faux pine wreath, fake snow in a hurricane vase, pine cones and added some ornaments.

I loved the arrangement and natural elements.  This year I did something similar but I added my favorite things including white candles tied with twine, pine sprigs, cinnamon pine cones, ornaments and beads to an old tin chicken feeder painted white.  
Fresh pine and cinnamon pine cones smell so good!





Candlelight is so cozy...

It looks so pretty on the mantel too...

That's beautiful! I have a long wooden tray that I made, similar to yours, that I was planning to use for a Thanksgiving centerpiece. I knew I wanted to include a ton of candles - I love that you included tapers tied together and standing up - that's a great variation I'm going to have to use! Thanks for the idea!

These are some lovely holiday decorations. I love your use of real pine - it probably smells as wonderful as it looks. Thanks for sharing and Happy Holidays!

I don't usually start decorating until the weekend after Thanksgiving...but my head is full of ideas! I love your center piece from last year, the mix of fresh and faux pine... and I may try to do something similar for our church's Christmas banquet.
I sent you an email about Pumpkin Chai Latte...
Happy Thanksgiving!

So pretty and it's something that I could do with just things from around the house-and my mom's yard for the pine!

Happy Thanksgiving.
