Introducing my DIY Christmas ornament bouquet! I love when I can repurpose a supply for a completely different use. This project is a great way to put some of your Christmas ornaments on display beyond hanging them on the tree.
If you have some extra ornaments that didn’t make it on the tree this year, this would be a fun craft to try. It makes for a pretty table centerpiece. I think the addition of fresh greenery is really what makes this bouquet work. I just cut some foliage from our yard (I used some leaves and berries from our nandina bushes).
Supplies for Christmas Ornament Bouquet
- Hollow ornaments with a hole on top (I prefer shatterproof to glass)
- Floral wire (I used 18 gauge wire)
- Floral foam
- Wire cutters
- Fresh greenery
- Vase (I made this jute twine wrapped vase – avoid clear vases so you don’t see the floral foam)
How to Make a Christmas Ornament Centerpiece
Step 1: Add floral foam to vase
If needed, cut your floral foam to fit the bottom of your vase.
Step 2: Insert floral wire into ornament
Cut a piece of floral wire to the height that you want for your arrangement and then stick one end into the hole at the top of the ornament (where the little silver cap is):
Step 3: Stick ornaments into floral foam
Stick your ornament “flower” into the floral foam. That’s it! Continue with the rest of the ornaments you want to use for your bouquet. I used 5 large ornaments and 5 small ornaments for my bouquet.
Step 4: Add greenery to your bouquet
Put the floral foam with your ornaments in the vase and finish off with some fresh greenery. You can make this in a matter of minutes!
