We used a silver cylinder, but you can start with any straight-sided vessel and paint it.

Introduction

Think outside the box (or rather, below the treetop) by adding starry ornaments throughout your Yuletide evergreen. In keeping with the metallic mode, the container is made from silver-sprayed twigs glued to a round pot. A splendidly decked-out concolor fir, enticing displays of cookies, and a crossed pair of linen runners painted with stars -- who knew an entire holiday universe could exist on a tabletop? Use our template to stencil your own.

Materials

  • Straight-sided container
  • Silver spray paint
  • Floral shears
  • Straight twigs
  • Screwdriver, screws, and wooden disk; or rocks

Steps

  1. Step 1

    If container is not silver, spray-paint it silver. Use floral shears to cut twigs so they're 1 inch taller than container. Spray-paint twigs. Let dry.

  2. Step 2
