Easy Holiday Decorating with Glass
Sprigs of evergreens fill a collection of plain glass vases for clearly inspired decor.
Top off a container
A holiday decoration can be as simple as a jaunty Santa hat draped in a pretty vase.
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.
Cover a tree
A cloche shelters a small cedar tree.
Layer silver and paper snowflakes between plates for frosty fun.
Make a centerpiece
A fluid floral centerpiece: a 17-inch-wide glass bowl and flowers in floating glass tea-light holders.
Decorate a candlestick
Top off a candlestick with a surprise silver bell or ornament.
Tie up tapers
Ribbon-tied clusters of tapers nestle in craft-store snow inside blown-glass vases.
