EASY CHRISTMAS ARRANGEMENT- This pretty arrangment takes only 10 minutes to put together. If you learn this "recipe" you can create so many different kinds of arrangements!

Do you get tired dragging those big boxes of holiday decor up and down the basement steps to decorate your home for Christmas? Have you ever asked yourself, “There has to be a better way”! Well, there is! Today I’m sharing how to use just a couple elements to make a very pretty Christmas arrangement in a bowl. 

This easy to put together arrangement is what I call a “recipe”. If you learn how to make this then you can create all kinds of other arrangements too!

Here’s what you will need to make this pretty little Christmas arrangement…

  • large bowl
  • candle in a glass container or battery operated candle with timer
  • pinecones
  • small bits of greens (either faux or real)
  • any other Christmas decor 

1 and 2  Depending on how tall your candle is and how tall you want it to raise up from the arrangement, put the candle on a small container or anything that is stable and will raise it up. If you have room around your candle add pinecones to fill it in.


Stick greens here and there among the pinecones. Add any other greens and pinecones to the arrangement.

Let some of the arrangement spill out 

That’s all to make this pretty 10 minute Christmas Arrangement! Just remember, any candle must not be left unattended!

  2. If you use a candle in a jar, you could keep water in the bottom of the bowl, increasing the longevity of the greens.

  3. Very pretty, Yvonne. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Hi Yvonne, I love your decorating style and it fits in with mine perfectly. I have tried to pin from your site many times, without any success. I always get the message “Something went wrong” . I’m a subscriber so I don’t know what the problem is. Please advise me as to how to get past this. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
