During Christmas, we love to decorate our home. We prefer to make our own Christmas decorations, for example with flowers and plants. Whether you choose a modern, oblong or unique Christmas arrangement, making your own Christmas centerpiece is not difficult! Here we give you an example on how to make a Christmas arrangement step by step. Of course, you can also just order a beautiful Christmas centerpiece from Euroflorist.

What you need to make a Christmas arrangement

Start by finding an object to make the Christmas piece in. This could be a nice bowl, an old clay pot or even a coffee cup. Next, you will need soil, seasonal plants, green moss to cover the soil with and finally decorations. You can use pine cones, Christmas baubles, cinnamon sticks and other decorative ornaments.

Step 1: put soil in the bowl

Start by adding a few inches of soil to the bottom of the bowl to create a base for the plants. This will ensure that the plants are stable at the bottom.

Step 2: Adding Christmas plants

Place your plants in the bowl. In this Christmas arrangement, we chose a poinsettia, Hedera, Kalanchoe, succulents and a fir. Choose plants that have different shapes. One that is tall, one that is low and one that hangs. Try to think of where and in which direction your Christmas arrangement should be placed, so it will be easier to decide how to plant the plants. Think about whether it should have a front or back, or whether it should be in the middle of a table and will be seen from all sides.

Step 3: adding moss

Once you have potted all the plants and are satisfied, add soil to cover the roots and keep the plants firmly in place. Next, cover the Christmas arrangement with green moss. Make sure you put green moss everywhere so it looks really pretty.
