Amped it Up

I was really happy with how my centerpiece turned out...for a day or two.

Then I had to go wandering around Target, where I found these adorable miniature fruit vase fillers! The tiny pears were a perfect shade, but there was only one box of them. When I spotted the red apples, I was reminded there was a still a smidge of silver spray paint left from the wreath...

Multiple items like this are simple to paint if you put them in a cardboard box and spray, shaking the box, until everything is lightly coated. Go have an eggnog. Come back and repeat the process. Have another eggnog. Mist your creations one more time, and then let them dry thoroughly.

Since I raise orchids, I have tons of spagnum moss on hand, which made the perfect nest around my hurricane candle holder. After that, I added the pears, and then the apples for a little bling bounty. I even had a few to tuck in with my coffee table centerpiece for a touch of holiday shine.

The Budget News:

2 packages of vase filler: $7.98

Yeah, I'm good with that.

Where did I leave my eggnog...
