A Quick Personalized Stocking and Centerpiece for Under $5

Remember I said I wasn't sure what I was going to do about Luvah's stocking this year?  I decided just to buy him a cheap one at The Dollar Tree and iron on some velour letters I got from WalMart last year.  So cheap and pretty good for a guy's stocking, right?



Alissa from 33 Shades of Green had a great idea for centerpieces.  I think she used fresh cranberries for hers, but I have these red berries in my back yard so I used those.  Mine isn't quite as pretty as hers, but it will do.  I bought the glass container at The Dollar tree and the gold floating candles at Micheals.  The floating candles were $3.99 but you get a bunch.  Considering I spent about $5 total for both these Christmas projects they look pretty good wouldn't you say? :)
