Wooden box or any watertight container
Block of wet floral foam
Assorted evergreen branches (fir, cedar, Magnolia and eucalyptus)
Pine cones and mini pumpkins
Echeveria
Hypericum berries and dried wheat
2  4” diameter glass cylinders
2 – 3” diameter floating candles
5-7 roses or any other face flower

What to Do

Cut and place floral foam in the container and fill with water until fully soaked.

Insert cut branches into the container.

Wire and stick the pine cones, pumpkin and succulents into the arrangement.

Place flowers and berries in the arrangement.

Take a group of the hypericum stems and tie into a small bouquet. Place the bouquet inside the glass cylinder, add water to just above the berries and place the floating candle on top.

Notes

Check the water often, as homes are now warm.

With the exception of the flowers, this arrangement will last throughout your winter holiday season and can easily be refreshed.
