Annual Memories Ornament:  This ornament is made with a plain silver ball ornament and a sharpie.  It’s so easy!  All you do is write the year and have everyone in the family pick a favorite memory.  It’s a great little family activity to do around the dinner table.

Ornament Tree:  A Dollar Store vase and pebbles (found in the craft aisle), branches, and ornaments make a quick and easy centerpiece.  *Tip:  Rather than those stones, you can use those clear stone pebbles they sell in bags.

Tiered Platter:  I’ve seen these done before and they are amazing!  They are basically made of a large plate, candle stick holder, and a dessert plate.  This one is made with clear plates, Mod Modge glue, and fabric.  You could also use scrapbook paper.  Or you could find plates and use super glue or a glue gun.  Either way, platters are so easy to make!
