A Christmas copy cat Challange

Today I am joining in on the week long Christmas Blogger Block Party the girls over At The Picket Fence are hosting. First up on the party line is Debbie's copy cat challenge. I love this magazine! It is full of beautiful things and plenty of inspiration, so this is where I took my copy cat from.



Doesn't this urn filled with evergreen, berries and sticks look beautiful! This is my inspiration photo.
And here is my much smaller version.




I used my pedestal bowl, added a little burlap and then filled it with evergreens and berries and  little sticks that look like they're covered in ice.




I love the way it turned out! Can't wait to see all the other copy cats out there!

That's pretty, Martina. At first I thought you were going to copy the sleigh. They have a huge metal red one for sale at Home Goods here. I don't know how anyone even picks it up. It is huge.
