Fresh Ideas for the New Year
Crafts Store Centerpiece
Before you spend time (and fuel) driving all over town for decorations, make a quick trip to the crafts store and create a festive Thanksgiving centerpiece.
For a touch of color, use a glue gun to attach dried flowers to standard wreath forms. (Only clip 8 to 10 blooms for each wreath, leaving about 1 inch on each stem.) Be sure to space out the flowers before gluing, because they’ll be difficult to remove when the glue has dried. And instead of throwing away the extras, save them to use in a harvest arrangement.
Tip: Save the wreaths that are used as candle accents and hang them in your home when Thanksgiving dinner is over.
