Christmas Hurricane

No, it's not really coming a hurricane. The hurricane I'm speaking of is a glass container. I can't take credit for the crafty creation below. This was actually a gift I received. With the holidays and family and work obligations, this has been a very busy month so I haven't had time to do much, if any, crafting at all. However, this was so cute and easy that I just had to share with you all.

Here's all you'll need to make this cute centerpiece:

One glass hurricane or other similar container (basically you just need enough room around the candle for the decor).
One styrofoam ball (this will be your "snow").
One pillar candle.
Mini candy canes, peppermints, or any other decoration of your choosing.

Take the styrofoam ball and run it across a kitchen grater. This will make your "snow". (Depending on the size of your container, the size of your styrofoam ball, and how much "snow" you need, one styrofoam ball may or may not be enough.) Place your candle in the bottom of your glass hurricane, and add your "snow" to desired height. Then place whatever decorative elements you've picked in the snow.

There you have it! One super easy, super cute Christmas centerpiece!
