If you ever follow me on Twitter; you will see blow by blow updates of my wanderings. Yesterday I announced that I had seen it snowing in summer. It is true. I visited Movie World’s White Christmas. It was beautiful and it was snowing!
I had sooooo much fun! What a great job Movie World did to really start the Christmas spirit!
While throwing together some last minute Christmas decorations; I came across my faux poinsettias. I use them throughout the house to tuck into “undecorated” spots or fill holes in the tree. I also use them in simple arrangements, as I did today. It is soooo easy and quick that anyone could do it. Here’s how:
Gather your supplies…I used an urn, one bunch of flowers, and two different bunches of greenery.
I placed the vine into the urn,
added the large ivy leaves throughout,
then stuck the bunch of poinsettias in the middle. I pulled the ivy through the poinsettia bunch and I was done.
Okay, I do feel like I cheated a little. This really is too simple, but that’s the way I keep it real.
If you would like to make a proper arrangement, you would add the foam to the urn and hot glue each addition in place. I didn’t want a permanent arrangement because my tastes change each year. At the end of Christmas, I will simply remove the poinsettias and have a lovely urn of greenery for the bathroom counter.
In the meantime, this is where I put my arrangement.
You can find my wicker chair makeover here. I removed the pillows. I have new ones in the making. You’ll want to keep a watchful eye out.
