A pretty winter decoration
Remember those pretty colander centerpieces I shared from Thelma’s Days, back before Christmas, where Thelma shared several colander centerpieces she had made? The Christmasy one I made using Thelma's idea is pictured at top.
At the time, I thought this idea could also be used to make a centerpiece that was "winter" and not just Christmas. Here is what I came up with:
I put this together as the Christmas tree was being undecorated. I used some new silver and gray balls bought at Walmart after Christmas,
along with vintage balls in various shades of blue and some silver pine cones which I had on hand, plus various sizes and shapes of snowflakes. I'm really quite pleased with how it turned out.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
