I have read a lot about the financial downfall and all their advice to survive the crisis is "Be Creative". I follow their advice and made this center piece from the items that was left behind in our house. I realized that we have 3 candle holders and I dress it up with festive wire and ribbons. Since our Tree is white Christmas so I use the extra red ornaments and place it on the table. My best critic which is my husband love the tree and the center piece though I cannot make it look on photos the way we saw it personally.
