One Glass Jar, Two Easy Holiday Centerpieces

The count down to gravy and stuffing is SO ON!  With only two days to go, I’m in a bit of a frenzy trying to stuff crap under beds clean and make everything all warm and inviting for our house full of guests on their way.  Like all things I do in life, leaving things to the last minute for Thanksgiving is no exception.  So, with the help of Floyd, my camera totin’ husband, I thought I would show you how I created a quick centerpiece for Thanksgiving that can quickly transition into a Christmas holiday look using the same glass jar and some of the same materials.  That’s right folks, two looks for the work of one!  This jar is pretty large, so for me it works best on the kitchen island rather than the dinner table.  For those of you not into videos (aka your boss might hear it!) I’ve included the final pics below.

    Love the image in my head of you stuffing things under beds! Glad it is not just me who does just this, oh and cramming in cupboards until I have to force the door closed.

    @Cassie, Don’t forget the junk drawer! Here’s hoping no one goes looking for anything…

    I just purchased one of these big apothecary jars last week at Home Goods and I bought two boxes of Christmas balls and some beads but am not satisfied with the look so when the weather clears up I’m going back to get some other stuff to put in mine. I emailed a picture of yours that I can use as a guidelines, to my own computer. Hope you don’t mind.

    It looks like you might have some small sprigs of decorations in there and some smaller beads than mine. I thought mine would be 2 strands but it is only one large strand. I guess somebody creative needs to do a step-by-step tuitorial on how to fill one and decorate one of thse apothecary jars for the holidays. I like the fact that it could be used as decoration for any holiday or special occassion. Valentine’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas

    These are absolutely gorgeous. I have a great apothecary jar for this, but am having trouble figure out exactly what the silver and red balls on the branch are called. We are military overseas and do not have a Michael’s or Hobby Lobby (or an equivalent) nearby so am trying to order offline. Can anyone help me on what exactly to search for? I’m looking at save-on-crafts.com and Hobby Lobby’s online shop with no luck. Thanks so much for any help!
