Here is another great DIY project from Avanti Morocha. This time she has brought us a wonderful holiday centerpiece idea using our new collection of 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!... all ready to adorn the holiday table or mantle!
