For your holiday décor: Create a festive glow at home. Simply stuff holiday lights into a tall bell jar. For a more dramatic look, cluster several together in a nonfunctional fireplace.
For DIY tea lights: Running errands for a party? Add satsumas (or clementines) and olive oil to your shopping list. In a few simple steps, you can use the fruit’s skin and pith for mini tabletop candles.
For fresh flowers: Everyone loves a bouquet of blooms, but caring for one can prove challenging for anyone with a black thumb. Just pour a small amount of 7UP into a vase to preserve them.
