Pencil Candles in a Bucket of Sand. Fill a galvanized tub with sand, slide in a handful of candles, don with a festive ribbon, and you have an instant centerpiece; perfect for a Christmas table. I could change the colour for other celebrations.
Place votive candles (in a variety of Christmas colors) on a red rectangular serving dish. Fill with cranberries, garnish with a few pine twigs and dust with artificial snow ~ easy and festive holiday centerpiece.
