I'd love to see your arrangement! Tag me on Instagram @myfashionabledesigns.
Wire Basket or box (plain or paint to your desired color!)
Branches from evergreen/pine/spruce trees, various types and sizes
Pinecones, berry stems, embellishments
Wire and/or Branch Cutter
Step 1: Soak the wet foam in a sink or bowl of water. Allow to absorb water naturally, usually about two minutes.
Step 2: Cut to fit your container.
Step 3: Place in the bottom of your container.
Step 4: Trim branches as needed and stick into the foam. You can't go wrong! Just start pushing them into the foam and add more and more until your desired fullness.
Step 5: Use floral wire to attach any embellishments.
Step 6: To cover foam block, just shove in some greenery!
Step 7: Attach a bow with floral wire or just tie it around a branch.
Great gift idea! Get creative by adding ornaments, glitter branches, candy canes, lights, etc.
Here I added a few embellishments:
Don't forget to add water to your foam every day or two to keep it from drying out!
