Rustic charm meets elegant style in this easy Christmas centerpiece tutorial that will add a touch of sophistication and warmth to your holiday table.
Supplies Needed– Container vessel – Floral foam or a floral frog – Christmas greenery mix – Pinecones, holly berries, etc. – Small ornaments or decorative elements – Twine or ribbon – Pruners or wire cutters– Waterproof liner
Select the ContainerChoose a container that fits your rustic-elegant theme. Wooden crates or vintage toolbox can provide a rustic touch, while galvanized metal troughs offer an industrial look. Metallic or vintage ceramic bowls can add an elegant flair.
Prepare the ContainerIf your container isn’t waterproof, line it with plastic or a waterproof liner to protect your table. This is really important if you use something like a crate or vintage basket.
Secure the GreensPlace your floral foam or floral frog at the bottom of the container. If using fresh greens, soak the foam in water until it’s thoroughly saturated. If your foam block is larger than your container, cut it down to size.
Create a Base LayerStart by arranging your base layer of greens. Use longer branches around the edges of the container and shorter pieces in the center to create a layered effect. Mix different types of greens for texture and depth.
Add VarietyLayer in additional greens with different colors and textures to create interest, depth and dimension.
Decorate with Pinecones, Berries and Other Christmas DecorDistribute pinecones, holly berries, or other seasonal embellishments throughout the arrangement. These touches add a festive and charming element to your centerpiece.
