DIY: Easy Christmas Centerpiece

I put together this simple Christmas centerpiece for my dining room table last year (and again this year) and, to my surprise and delight, I have gotten a TON of compliments on it.

-Clear plastic (or glass) bowl
-Ball ornaments of various colors and sizes (I got 4 boxes: 2 with smaller ornaments and 2 with larger ones. They were from Target and I snagged them on Black Friday for $1 each!)
-Pillar candle

1. Fill bowl with ornaments
2. Stick the candle in the middle.

See? Super easy. The hardest part is popping the ornaments out of the plastic. After that, it takes about 2 minutes to put together (unless you get really fussy with the placement of the ornaments and making sure the same colors aren't touching).

And, it has a huge impact. The candle light looks gorgeous reflecting off the ornaments.
