Christmas Ball And Candle Centerpiece

This arrangement looks particularly elegant on a silver tray, but any kind of tray -- or even a shallow bowl -- will do. If you can't find clip-on candle holders, use regular candle holders held in place with a bit of Fun-Tak, a gummy reusable adhesive available at crafts stores.

What you will need:
Round tray
Blue spruce sprigs
Dried pepper berry sprigs (available at crafts stores)
Large silver Christmas balls
Clip-on candle holders
Small no-drip white tapers

Fill the tray with sprigs of blue spruce and pepper berries. Then tuck in the Christmas balls. Attach small clip-on candle holders to spruce sprigs in a circle around the edge of the tray, and finish with small no-drip white tapers.
