Fill a shadow box with ornaments. Vinyl lettering or stickers in bottom corner. This would be cute filled with jingle bells too! I could use this idea for older ornaments that don't always get placed on the tree... but for a large amount of balls I prefer a wreath...
Center of Attention:: Use your pinecone-filled vase as a centerpiece. Remove the tall branches and place the vase in the middle of the table. Group pinecones and greenery around the base. For a more dramatic look, fill several vases and line them up along the table
Easy Marbelized Ornaments by alisaburke - Fill a container with about 2-3" of water - mist the surface of the water with spray paint (outside!) - Add more colors - Let the colors blend together, shake or even stir to create swirls - Dip ornament & quickly remove. This tutorial is really for marbelizing paper, but you can use the same process on ornaments, and the color will dry to a permanent finish that won't peel or flake off.
