I found this wooden bowl in a thrift shop many months ago. Tried to sell it in my booth, but, as you can see, I still have it. So I decided to stain it with dark walnut stain and then fill it with old pine cones picked up by the health club. I painted some of them with white acrylic paint and the well aged gray ones I left alone. A couple of faux greenery sprigs and, well, here's the finished bowl!
Next is this old blue and off white bowl with gold trim that I picked up while thrifting. It is old, crazed, chipped, and I think cracked slightly because it sounds cracked when tapped. But, it sure looks better with gold ornaments and a couple of blue ones tucked in as well. Those are real greens in with the ornaments.
