With gifts to wrap, stockings to hang, and Christmas cookies to bake, tabletop decor for your holiday meal can easily be overlooked. But you don’t need to buy a bunch of supplies or expensive flowers to make a beautiful holiday table. Collect bits of nature, reuse garden supplies and delve into the candy drawer to find odds and ends to decorate.
These three Christmas centerpiece projects are made from supplies you might already have and won’t take up any of the time you need to play Secret Santa, orchestrate Christmas caroling and go jingle bell rocking.
