Pine Box Christmas Centerpiece. Old soda crate or something similar, 4 lg Mason jars, fresh pine boughs, pine cones, Epsom salts, berries (fake or real), votive candles in glass. Place jars in box, cut & arrange pine around jars, stick pine cones & berries amongst greenery attractively. Pour Epsom salts evenly between the four jars. Press votive candle down inside jars. Epsom salts look like snow. Different look w/wide mouthed quart jars.
