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