Back in October, I had shared an article called Transforming A Hurricane Vase Into A Fall Decoration which discussed how I decorate my hurricane vase for Autumn.
Now that the Christmas season is here, it is time to freshen it up with a Winter theme.
The “How To” on this is really easy. Simply put pine cones in first, position a candle in the middle (the top should be above the pine cones and move them around until the candle is secure and center), then add your ribbon last. If you burn your candle, as always it should not be left unattended.
I suggest using a ribbon that has the built-in wire along the edges making it easier to mold it into place. Once I tied my bow and got the ribbon size I wanted, I cut off the extra and twirled the ends.
Since my vase was already set up, I kept the pine cones in place and added a Snowman Ribbon I had previously bought from Michaels. I then added a small red candle I already had on hand. I suggest looking at the Dollar Store for a candle and ribbon.
If you don’t have a Hurricane Vase take a look at Wal-Mart, Michaels (use a coupon), or ones like these Hurricane Vases, at Amazon. Mine is 12 inches tall by 7 inches wide. Obviously, if you have a pine tree, you can pick the cones up for free.
Do you own a Hurricane Vase? If so, how do you decorate yours for the different seasons?
When winter is over, I will simply replace the ribbon, pine cones, and candle and make a new spring related creation.
