Y’all know we are in full swing holiday crafting mode over here. Today I’m showing you how to make a beautiful Christmas floral arrangement that is perfect for any table!

All right y’all, it’s confession time. Floral arrangements are really not my thing. I am a pro when it comes to wreaths, door hangers, and centerpieces. Florals, however, are not my forte. Never the less, today I am showing you how to make an elegant DIY Christmas floral arrangement that I am super proud of. When it comes to this type of project I kind of just wing it and I’m so happy to have y’all along for the ride!

How to Make a Christmas Floral Arrangement

Like I said, floral arrangements are not my area of expertise. The good news is though that if I can do it you can do it! I’m used to working with a design plan y’all but that’s just not how I roll when it comes to florals. I think that what you really need for this is a good eye for balance and flow. That way you can just roll with it and make your design creations as you create. When you watch the video below you’ll see exactly what I mean.

Don’t let the lack of a by-the-book design plan intimidate you though y’all! You can still have a game plan. What I do is decide on a color scheme, collect florals that go with that, and then see what happens at the craft table. I know for some creative artists, this is the way they prefer to work. If that sounds like you, this is your perfect project! You do also need the basic skill of attaching florals. If you want to learn more about how to add greenery, we have a blog post for that too!

This project involves a lot of floral cutting and securing. There are a couple of things I want to tell you about this to make your life easier. First, make sure you have the right tools. Don’t try cutting floral stems with scissors when you can use a set of wire cutters, your hands (and scissors) will thank me later! To learn more about the must have tools to cut flower stems, check out our post on that. The other thing I want to tell you is that if you work with florals often, a pick machine will save you soooo much time! It’s an investment for sure but it is so much better than hand wrapping all of your stems. When you watch the video, you’ll see exactly what I mean!

DIY Christmas Floral Arrangement

How to make a DIY Christmas Floral Arrangement
Yield: 1 arrangement


  • Start by filling your bucket with spray foam and let it expand.
  • Use hot glue to attach the moss to the top of the foam.
  • Start by adding the large poinsettias. Put hot glue on the end and add one flower to the center, front, and back of the arrangement.
  • Next, take the pine stems and trim them. Add a pick to the end of each, dip it in the glue pot, and add evenly to your arrangement.
  • Here's where things get less structured. Select different Christmas stems, trim them, add a pick, and then use hot glue to add them to your arrangement. Alternate your colors and evenly space them through your arrangement. Continue to fill in the remainder of your arrangement until it is beautiful and full.


And that’s it y’all! I don’t give you as much detailed direction for this project as I do with my wreaths but you’ll get the idea. This is all about you partnering with your materials to make one amazing creation. I absolutely love how this floral arrangement turned out y’all and I know yours will be amazing too!
