Our easy to follow steps are …
Gather Supplies to Create a Rustic Christmas Centerpiece
Wooden Bowl or Container
Three Yarn Wrapped Trees
Moss either Spanish or Green
Greenery from Pine Trees or Arborvitae Evergreen Boughs
Miniature Pine Cones
Miniature Brown Twig Balls
Decorative Woody Filler items such as Seeds, Pods
Small pieces Floral Dry Foam
Yarn Wrapped Christmas Trees
Centerpiece Base – a wooden rustic in appearance bowl
Small Pieces of Floral Dry Foam (from a previous project)
Moss Spanish or Green (from a previous project)
Pine or Arborvitae Green Boughs (retrieved from the woods)
Miniature Pine Cones (local woods)
Miniature Twig Balls (last year’s decor)
Decorative Woody Fillers (last year’s decor – red nut shaped objects) Seeds, Pods in Festive Colors
All supplies used we had on hand. The wooden bowl for the centerpiece was swallow about 1 inch deep. Three yarn covered Christmas Trees (see our tutorial here) previously made. Small scrap pieces of floral dry foam for each tree to stand on. Reused moss. Miniature twig balls found at the Dollar Store. Reused dry seeds, pods, and nuts. And the pine, arborvitae greenery, and pine cones were found in the woods.
Twig Balls can be made using vines from your garden. Virginia Creeper or Bittersweet Vine can be used to form wreaths, spheres, or cones. Remove vines and immediately wrap the vine into the form you need. Allow to dry for a couple of weeks. A great time to remove the vines is in the Springtime.
Decorative balls can be made from twine as well.
Total time to complete is 15 minutes.
2. Insert Three Trees into Dry Foam Pieces
Insert each yarn wrapped tree into a scrap piece of dry foam. The Christmas trees will stand straight up. Place them in the center of the bowl or container.
3. Spread Spanish Moss Around the Base of the Trees
Lay the moss around the container. Cover the dry foam as much as possible. We used Spanish moss. Cover the entire bottom of the bowl with the moss.
4. Add the Greenery Boughs Over the Moss
Add the greenery boughs to cover some of the moss.
5. Add Twig Balls, Seeds, and Pods Over the Moss and Greenery
Carefully lay the twig balls, seeds, and pods randomly over the greenery. We usually add 5 or 7 items to the centerpiece. Adding 2 to 3 items would be too few. And adding 9 to 10 items would be too many. 5 to 7 items looks about right for this size of the bowl. A larger container would need 10 or even more items.
And here is the finished Rustic Christmas Centerpiece.
