The Prettiest Ornament Bouquet for Christmas!December 06, 2013 | FILED UNDER: Christmas
Remember that Easter bouquet I made from plastic eggs? Well I thought it would be fun to try something similar with ornaments. Introducing the ornament bouquet! I love when I can repurpose a supply for a completely different use!
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
1. If needed, cut your floral foam to fit the bottom of your vase.
2. 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):
3. 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.
4. 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!
