  • Attractive bowls, see through glass containers, cheese tray with a glass dome, cake plate with glass dome and vases are great to use as a centerpiece. Fill them with Christmas balls, lights, pine cones, cut pine boughs, acorns, whole nuts in the shell or any festive holiday decor items you already have.
  • Place candy canes in Mason jars and group together.
  • Fill a glass vase with rocks, acorns, pine cones or whatever medium is available from nature in your yard. \
