Enjoy this great DIY project from Avanti Morocha. A wonderful holiday centerpiece idea using our 60 gram crepe paper It works extremely well with this project since this paper is lighter than conventional 180-gram crepe paper with grain that is far more subtle. Arranged in a rustic box - add a few pinecones and ornaments and voila! The holidays can come!
