Hello and Welcome to October’s Pinterest Challenge!
Each month, our lovely host Cindy from CountyRoad407.com, chooses a photo each month to inspire a group of creative blogging buddies. Using the inspiration photo, we recreate something similar, but in our own personal style.
Cindy put a little twist on the challenge this month. The Pinterest Challenge for October is all about cranberries! Isn’t that perfect for the fall?

Tips and Notes
- Trade out the fresh boxwood for other greens. You might like clipping of spruce, cedar, holly, or ivy.
- Add some pretty seasonal ribbon to decorate your jar. Please be mindful of the ribbon when lighting the tealight candles.
- Do not use battery-operated tealight candles in water.
- Change out your greenery and cranberries every 5 days or when the water begins to look cloudy.
