How-to:

  2. Place near candles.

Add a distinctive flourish to the table or buffet with ribbon and natural elements.

You will need:

  • Decanter
  • Ribbon
  • Acorns
  • Berries
  • Leaves
  • Glue gun

How-to:

  1. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the decanter.
  2. Tuck leaves and berries under the ribbon, using a little glue to hold them in place.
