I didn't follow the directions at BHG. Instead, I did a little more searching and then just did it my way. Most people suggest painting your stryofoam ball in a complimentary color first. I skipped this step because I was in a hurry, but I do recommend you do that.
I used a 4 in styrofoam ball, 3 different size ornaments and a glitter pick. I also used a dowel rod which I covered in washi tape and a planter from the dollar tree.
My planter was originally bronze, but with a few coats of spray paint it became silver.
You also need some foam for the planter and something to cover it with. I used moss and blue glass pebbles. The pebbles give the bottom some weight.
I think this makes a much better centerpiece for this area than what I had last year, and the ornaments coordinate with my window wreaths.
Check out my mantel and Christmas vignettes to see more ways I've used ornaments in my decor.
