Winter Centerpiece

First, I started with a tablecloth and some burlap.  On top of the old childs sled are pieces of a broken mirror.  But not to worry, NO bad luck for me!  The guy at the hardware store looked at me really strange when I saw it in their trash can and asked if I could have it...
As you can see, the broken glass looks like ice and the reflection is divine!  Now of course you wouldnt want this around small children, but I think my teenage sons will leave it alone - ha!
Also, I was looking for a reason to use my new 25 cent garage sale find...this fluffy angora scarf!
Heres a view of the wintery-looking tablecloth layered with a piece of burlap.

Simple Winter Centerpiece has a surprise ingredient...(hint: don't throw anything away!)

a Christmas display that could stay out all winter.
