  • Make your own wine charms by tying different colored bells onto the stems with ribbon.
  • Keep a tablecloth in place with bells stitched onto each corner.

  • Instead of sand, pebbles or shells, fill a large glass vase with bells and set a pillar candle inside.
  • Create a sweet-smelling table centerpiece out of cinnamon sticks.
  • Découpage holiday cards onto a red-painted tray for a festive way to serve drinks and hors d'oeuvres.
