Here is the original pin I found. Pretty cute, right? Easy enough especially since we have a ton of pine trees in our backyard!
I already had a hurricane vase with a candle that I used for our Thanksgiving. It's a little embarrassing how sad it was looking. I'm pretty sure I got my money's worth out of those cranberries, though.
I was pretty excited when I remembered my pin with the spruces of evergreen. [Did I make that up? Are they called spruces?] I went outside with a pair of scissors and started playing Edward Scissorhands with one of our pine trees (don't tell my husband). Let me just tell you - those suckers are SHARP! I felt like I was being attacked by a porcupine. I came in with a handful of spruces (?) and tried to arrange them. It wasn't happening. I think I have the wrong type of pine tree...?
It definitely looks a little better with the candle lit, right? Maybe I'm just trying to be optimistic. I blew the candle out anyway because it seemed like a fire hazard. Pinterest fail!
I'm linking up with Stephanie & Katie again today!
