This arrangement will set a wintry mood. Half-fill a vase with faux-crystal beads. Fill another with faux snow and top with hydrangea heads. Fill a third with spray-painted pine cones, and another with willow branches supported by walnuts painted silver. Hang icicle decorations from the branches and finish with ribbon bows. Tea lights complete the look.
