If you need an idea for a Christmas centerpiece, I’ve got you covered with this $10 foraged arrangement!
Hey friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. A couple of weeks ago, I shared on a post that I made a youtube video on this $10 foraged arrangement. I created this after I
stole clipped some branches from my bestie and SIL’s house. I used it for Thanksgiving but it lasted longer than two weeks. If you need a centerpiece for Christmas, I encourage you to make this one because it’s large, inexpensive and lasts a long time.
The only things I bought were the cabbage in the front and some eucalyptus from Trader Joes. Everything else was clipped from outdoors. You could so many different types of greenery like holly branches, boxwood and tree branches.
I used the same techniques to create this centerpiece using this floral arrangement instruction. Basically, you hang long pieces of greenery off the sides and keep filling in the bowl until it gets full. I added the cabbage in the front and continued to add a bunch of greenery throughout the top. I think it looks a bit wild and crazy but I love how full and large it came out. I took a photo with it so you could see the size of of the arrangement next to me.
Here’s the youtube video I shared a couple of weeks ago.
I also had it on my island for my kitchen tour since it lasted long after Thanksgiving.
It was used on my Christmas tablescape for the Merry and Bright Holiday Home Tour.
I received a comment from a reader stating that he/she was disappointed that I reposted an old blog post specifically my marshmallow recipe. I actually didn’t use old content and repost it but I bumped it up on the timeline so that my readers could easily find and access the new step by step video I added. You can tell it’s an old post by the not so great photos and my Emmy is a baby. Since I’m creating a lot more video content, I will sometimes take old posts and add these videos. I think videos can really help with certain recipes and DIY especially if you are a visual learner like myself. If you see me promoting any of my old content in the future, just know that it’s because there will be a video link added to it. My hope is that you will find that specific tutorial a little more easy to follow. I hope that makes sense!
Thanks so much for reading! I truly do appreciate the comments even the constructive criticism. I love sharing ideas and tutorials here in this space and always hope that you leave with a bit more inspiration and encouragement to create something. Remember, it doesn’t always have to cost a lot of money to be beautiful!
Have a wonderful start to the week. 1 more week till Christmas!
Let all that you do be done in Love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
