I thought this was such a great idea! I have a cupcake holder that gets used at best a few times a year. What a great idea to use it as a centerpiece for the holidays. The most time consuming part of this project was locating the cupcake holder. I eventually found it in the way way back dark corner of a kitchen cabinet. I then took a few ornaments off my tree and filled in the cupcake holder. Voila, I had an instant dining room table centerpiece. I decided to sprinkle a few extra ornaments around the centerpiece. This was so simple!
