On The Tenth Day of Christmas...

Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, a simple, natural centerpiece.  So the red toolbox centerpiece I showed you did not stay at my home, but went out to my space at The Antique Barn.  But, that meant I still needed a centerpiece.  This one is easy, quick and in my budget.
Start with a great crate or a tray from the thrift store.
Add some thrift store milk glass and candles.
 Filler is next--I used fresh branches and pinecones.  Not your style?  Other ideas for filler would be glass balls from the thrift store, epson salt and snowflake ornaments, balls of yarn, rusty, crusty piece of junk, peppermints, and...what ideas do you have?  This Christmas, create a fresh centerpiece with pieces you find from a thrift store or garage sale--it is fun, inexpensive, and stretches the creativity.
