Let It Glow

Soft, sparkling light enhances the holiday mood. This glowing centerpiece welcomes guests.

What You Need:

Set a warm tone with soft lighting.
  • Grapevine wreath
  • White spray paint
  • 2 strings of white tree lights on white cord (see Step 2)
  • Large glass or crystal bowl
  • Clear glass ornaments, orbs and stars


1. Spray grapevine wreath white. Let dry.

2. Wrap a string of lights around the wreath. If the decoration sits on an end table or in an entry, you can use plug-in lights. Otherwise you'll need to use battery-operated ones.

3. Nest the bowl inside the wreath, and lay more lights inside the bowl.

4. Fill the bowl with orbs, ornaments, and stars made of clear glass.

More Ideas:

  • A bowl of multicolored lights will also add a seasonal touch.
  • Other ways to soften the lighting around your home: Lower the wattage in table lamps, and supplement them with small decorative lamps, picture lights over artwork, and candles.
