Easy Holiday Decorating with Glass

Create simple holiday decorations by filling glassware or acrylic items with seasonal objects such as pinecones, holly or tangled twinkle lights.

Hurricane holders

Candle hurricanes show holiday verve when filled with ribbons, gift tags, candy canes, pine branches or other seasonal items.

Fill a jar

Fill apothecary jars with ornaments, pinecones, ribbons, or other seasonal decorations.

Create candle holders

Glasses double as votive holders that you can group on a table or mantel. Top with mini-wreaths, being sure to use non-flammable materials or to keep candle flames well away from fresh greens.
