The Christmas Centerpiece

A while back, I wrote a blog about rednecks and included a picture of a centerpiece that was a collaboration between me and my grandson.

Well, autumn is over and Christmas is near.

Lil man went through the shotgun shells and we had only red and green shotgun shells for the Christmas centerpiece.

Then he brought me three yellow ones and asked that they be included. I asked why and he said yellow like the star of "you know, that town" and three because the star led the three wise men to "you know, that town" where the Baby was born.



His first time using the wire cutters.


Please note the "wise man"

Yep, just like we wanted!

He is very wise and so cute!! The yellow made perfect sense to me. :D

Ok, I might be a redneck, because I don't see anything wrong with shot gun shells as decor.

What a unique idea ! He has the sweetest eyes. What a precious little boy !
Suggestion for your redneck centerpiece: make some candle holders out of duct tape and set on either side of it.

That's quite unique. I would have NEVER thought of using shotgun shells for decoration!
