Create a Festive Christmas Arrangement

For a container, I have chosen an oblong container that is a perfect fit for three four inch pots of mini poinsettias!  The empty container measures thirteen inches long, four inches wide, and five inches high.

The poinsettias came with foil pot covers that I was able to cut down so they did not show above the top of the basket.  The pot covers are water proof, so they make great containers for watering the poinsettias as needed.  Additional fresh materials include eight pieces of fresh cedar and five pieces of fresh holly.

Tools and accessories include a pair of sharp scissors, a knife, a round red glass ornament that measures two and a half inches in diameter, and two small silver glass ornaments that measure one inch in diameter, plus a piece of red satin ribbon that measures thirty two inches long.

I started by placing the poinsettias with their covers into the basket.  Next, I added the pieces of fresh cedar and holly directly into the moist soil.  Then I added the large red glass ball and two small silver glass balls. The ornaments are held in place by the stems of fresh holly and cedar.  Next comes tying the red satin bow to create a focal point.

The finished length is twenty inches long.  The finished width is nine inches wide, and the finished height is ten inches.

I wish you each and all a very festive Christmas and hope you enjoy the season with friends and family!

She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
