I harvested some holly in November keeping it in a bucket of water in the garage in hopes of making some decorations for Christmas.
Since this is what the garden looked like Monday, I decided to stay inside and try an idea.
I got out a box of old glass ball Christmas ornaments that I use for just about anything except hanging on the tree, collected a few vases and brought in the holly.
I promptly broke one of the ornaments.
After tucking some ornaments into the vases (yes, one of those is a tree topper), I arranged the holly in the vases too.
Now, these are not the best ornaments. The paint on many of them is cracked which I thought might cause some of it to flake off when I added the water (wanting to keep the holly hydrated). However, I never considered that all the paint would come off making the water a mess and ruining the whole look. I pulled the holly, poured out the vases and threw the ornaments in the trash. This was not a good idea.
I found the glass pebbles I store in an old tin, cleaned the vases and went with a simplistic, elegant look instead of a colorful, festive look.
Tomorrow, I show you where I placed the arrangements.
