Glass Vase Display for the Holidays

I know it’s not yet Thanksgiving, but I’m ready for Winter and Christmas! Well, not ready exactly, but very excited.

Holiday Glass Vase DisplayI’ve been having fun making some new Christmas decorations this year. After finishing the bird nest last week, I put together a Holiday glass vase display using the bird nest, along with some other supplies I already had on hand.


  • Glass vase – I picked mine up at Hobby Lobby a couple of months ago. 50% off!
  • Faux snow and/or Epsom salt
  • Faux tree branch
  • Small ornaments, berries, pine cones

I mixed some faux snow and Epsom salt together, then poured into the glass vase.

Using a Christmas “pick” from years past, I trimmed it down and placed it on top of the snow.

Added some faux berries and some small pine cones. Centerpiece complete. Very simple, inexpensive, and very cute!
