I started with a glass hurricane (any glass vessel will do) and then began to place ornaments in bit by bit. I put the prettiest ornaments along the outside edges, holding them in place with more ornaments. I varied the sizes and layered in a modern silver garland to fill in the tiniest of spaces.
I filled it to the rim... and then some!
I added a pretty cut glass tray underneath it.
And here is my centerpiece! Crazy easy, right?
