Winter Vase Arrangement

4 Materials
30 Minutes

Do you hate letting go of the Christmas decorations? I am in the same boat... I like to keep decorations up as long as I can and why keep spending money on new decorations all of the time? I like to stretch my dollar and my décor.

When I am working on a new project, it is a process. I may have one idea in my mind and it may turn out terribly so I have a lot of things on the table while I work. It is a mess... but a creative one, LOL.

I started with a regular thrift store vase, filled with diamond like pieces in the bottom. As you know, I love sparkle... and it kind of reminds me of snow when the light hits the snow just right.  

Here is an oversized ornament from Hobby Lobby. I use these a lot in my regular décor. Fancy Pants look on a low cost budget.  

I placed the ornament down in the vase and pushed down in the "diamonds". While I thought this was a cute look, I felt like it needed something else. 

I started looking around at my loot on the table and decided to use the cedar pieces I spoke of earlier from Target (they must be sold out now, $5.00 for a bunch).  

I started placing the cedar branches into the "diamonds" and lining the back of the vase.  

I did not care for the ornament facing forward, so I turned it to the side and kept the cedar along the back of the vase.  

What do you think? It is different than other arrangements I have put together and I am loving the "sparkling snow" surrounding the ornament. We will see how long this one sticks around before I pull it a part and see what else I can come up with.  I already had everything on hand so this was another free to me project. Those are my favorite!
