More Upcycled Holiday Table Decor

We had a feeling you would love the upcycled holiday table decor that Morena had to share with us yesterday. And we are just as sure you will love these additional ideas she has for making your holiday table sparkle and shine!

Now that I have shared the Thanksgiving themed table center piece, next is a smaller piece that would be pretty for a bridal or baby shower.  You could add a little tag to the cup and use it as a place card if you like.  The French Vanilla scent is so inviting, and I'm keeping this piece on my craft desk because it leaves the room smelling so nice!

Upcycled Holiday Table Decor

By Morena Hockley
My absolute favorite way to craft is by using thrifted and recycled items.  I love to turn something unwanted into something new and unexpected.  My go-to craft items for upcycling are my glue gun and spray paint, and now I'm adding a new must-have item to the list:  scented glue sticks.  The pleasing scent of these new glue sticks from Ad Tech bring a delightful new dimension to these craft projects!  I'm going to show you three different projects using scented glue sticks and thrifted items to create pretty table decor and centerpieces for your home.
