Those Christmas Berries…

Oh, those Christmas berries.  You know, the ones that come on branches that you can find in the midst of the hustle and bustle that is Hobby Lobby?  We have inherited all of our tree decorations from my generous mother-in-law, and usually the top of our tree is decorated with strands of berries jutting out of the top.  It’s really fun, and it’s the way we’ve had it for the past few years; but this year I wanted to try something different (which you will see in the next few days, my friends).  So, the berries needed a home.

Enter…the tree trunk vase.  My mother-in-law picked it up for me at AJ’s and it was only three dollars!  I was so excited when I saw it because I know that this is a vase that will be completely multipurpose throughout the seasons…and I love that.  But upon staring at the massive amount of berry strands that I had acquired, I just knew what I had to do.

Easy peasy, my friends.  Just cut and stick.  So simple, and such a pretty coffee table item.

Do you have an abundance of Christmas berries, too?  How about a tree trunk vase?  Any other ideas of what I could put into this cute little vase?
