Easy Christmas Centerpeice

I saw this idea in a Crate and Barrel catalog and decided to make my own. Of course kids could help make this easily.

I first used a vase filled with river stones (from the Dollar Tree), sticks from my tree and ornaments.

Arrange the sticks in the vase.
Hang the ornaments.
Then I made the snowflakes from craft sticks, glue and glitter.

I love the way it turned out.

This looks really cool in person and the homemade snowflakes really pop on the tree! Great job!!!

This is beautiful! I have had in mind to do something similar but with a partridge in a pear tree theme. I did it a few years ago and loved it! Yours is inspired. Thanks for sharing it.
