Here is a last minute easy idea for a hol­i­day cen­ter­piece. This would be great for any­time from Thanks­giv­ing to Christ­mas. It’s fes­tive and inex­pen­sive. Take two cylin­der vas­es of dif­fer­ent heights. These shown are 6 inch­es wide by 6 inch­es tall and 6 inch­es wide by 8 inch­es tall. The pil­lar can­dles inside are 3 inch­es wide. The short can­dle is 4 inch­es tall and the tall can­dle is 6 inch­es tall. I used one bag of cran­ber­ries I bought at the gro­cery store and divid­ed it by the two vases. 
I hope you have a very Mer­ry Christmas!
