How to Make Christmas Floral Arrangements


Make this Christmas floral arrangement using fresh flowers, greenery and a few basic floral supplies. While making a stunning centerpiece for a Christmas party at home, this Christmas floral arrangement makes a beautiful decoration for a winter wedding or any special event during the holiday season. Making your own floral arrangement at home is much less expensive than purchasing one from a florist and with the relative ease of putting this arrangement together, just about anyone will feel comfortable making it.

Step 1

Soak a 10-inch size floral foam ring in water for at least five minutes until completely saturated. Set on a dish drainer to let excess water drain off, then place the ring on a 12-inch plate.

Step 2

Insert holly leaves into the ring along the top and side, spacing the leaves about 2 to 3 inches apart. Insert ivy leaves in between the holly leaves to fill in the gaps and covering the ring completely with the leaves.

Step 3

Select 20 roses, 10 white and 10 red to use in your floral arrangement. Cut the rose stems to 2 inches long and insert the roses into the ring along the top and the side, alternating the colors and spacing them about 3 to 4 inches apart.

Step 4

Place a few silver and gold ball ornaments randomly throughout the floral arrangement, setting them down in the greenery. Scatter a few ornaments around the edge of the plate.

Step 5

Place a pillar candle in the center of the ring. The candle can be any color of your choosing, such as white, red or silver. Light the candle to finish your arrangement.
