Holiday Decor Using Cranberries

Here is an easy way to dress up a mantle, kitchen table, or counter.  This is one of my favorite holiday decorations to make.  Super easy and cheap!  I got this idea a long time ago from a neighborhood friend Cathy.

Materials:
Mason Jars (I used my grandmother's Ball Mason Jars that have a blue heu to them.)
Bag of Cranberries
Cinnimon Sticks
Pieces of Pine Tree (I don't have any in my new yard, so I omitted these, it just adds another touch of color)
Water
Votive Candles

Directions:
Fill the jar to the neck with cranberries, and then fill with water to the same level.  Then, stick about 3-4 cinnimon sticks (and pine tree) around so that you can see them through the jar.  Next, place a small votive candle on the top and you're finished!  I like to put my jars in the refridgerator at night, so they last longer.
