Sometimes you land on something so utterly fabulous, it bears repeating year after year after year. That’s how I feel about my cranberry pine holiday centerpieces. I first made a couple of these simple seasonal centerpieces about 5 years ago. They are so easy, even during the hustle and bustle of the holiday, I can whip them out in minutes.
You will need:
:: 1 mason jar (I use a quart sized jar)
:: greens of your choice (I trimmed some pieces off the back of our Christmas tree)
:: handful of cranberries
:: candle (I use a floating candle. A tea light would work too if you set it on top of the cranberries.)
How to make:
:: Place greens in your mason jar – arrange to your liking. I literally just dumped mine in – no arranging here!
:: Fill jar 3/4 way with water
:: Add cranberries to jar (they will float to the top)
:: Place floating candle on top of berries (flush with -or just above- water level)
:: Light candle!
Purely for entertainment purposes, here’s a video that Lily and I made a few years ago. She was 4 and put together one of these jars herself. :)
