Pottery Barn Knock-Offs #2

When I saw this, I couldn't belive they charge $30 to $50 for some of these cylinders.
Mission:
I set out to make a knock-off of this arrangement using glass cylinders I purchased from resale stores for no more than $1.99 each. Filler materials were mostly from the Dollar Tree.

Some of this was free (from box of yard sale stuff Annette didn't sell -- but don't tell her I'm using it.)
Total cost (less than $20):


Fake silver Poinsetta...white Dollar tree candles and jingle bells
(You see my silver acorns from Saturday's post?)

Real cranberries and clear liquid marbles from Dollar Tree. The angel thingie is something Annette gave my daughter, but I needed for height...a little fake snow inside and it's all good.

Grand Finale: Video entitled "Jazzy Knock-off"

I love a good PB knock-off! We can beat them at their game, can't we? Looks beautiful!

Really liked the video. I've been looking at some stuff like that too--it's so easy to recreate the looks (well, some of them)!

I saw these at PB the other day and the price actually made me angry. They are selling a little box of bells for $20! You can get that online or at Michaels for $5! Great job!
