Country Sampler - - Decorate with Craft -

1. Cabin fever. As­sem­ble a homey cen­ter­piece with a va­ri­ety of el­e­ments, in­clud­ing a tray of can­dles and sen­ti­men­tal wood slice or­na­ments, a frosted tree tucked in a wood box shelf and a lighted log cabin, all sit­u­ated atop a patch­work run­ner and tied to­gether with a dust­ing of faux snow.

2. All-pine glow. Craft cus­tom can­dle­hold­ers by glu­ing sev­eral rows of pinecone scales around the base of a clear glass vo­tive holder or tum­bler. To add in­ter­est to the dis­play, el­e­vate one on a small birch log. “Tex­ture, scent and light com­bine to ap­peal to mul­ti­ple senses,” René says.

3. Win­dow framed. To cre­ate depth in a wall ar­range­ment, layer a can­vas print with a hol­i­day scene atop a com­monly found item, such as this sal­vaged win­dow.
