Get a jar or a vase.
Take some twinkle lights. I bought a bulk pack of warm white from Amazon for about $2/string.
Wind the lights loosely inside.
Put Christmas balls in amongst the lights. I found a pack with gold and white ornaments for $1 at the Dollar Tree.
Voila! You’re done.
Since this jar had a lid, I taped the switch inside the lid. If you use a vase, just tuck it under a Christmas ball at the top.
This works with anything-colored balls, pine cones, garland, peppermints, cookie cutters. Tall vases in your center piece, Mason jars in kitchen, a fish bowl in the bathroom. Don’t limit yourself!
In other seasons you can fill the jar with other kinds of decor, corn in the fall, flowers in the spring, tiny drink umbrellas in the summer.
Go forth and be creative! I’d love to see that yours look like.
