Incorporate sparkle into a centerpiece by creating a custom candleholder from your cherished heirlooms. Stretch a rubber band around the middle of a Mason jar. Slip forks and spoons under the band, and adjust until you are pleased with the arrangement. Attach the flatware to the jar, using glue dots where each piece touches the glass. Securely tie a decorative twine or ribbon around the assembly to help keep your flatware in place. Carefully cut or slip off the rubber band. Place a candle inside the jar, and light for a festive shine.
