This little arrangement was WAY TOO EASY to create! Just wait until you see how I created it! Sometimes I get a stroke of brilliance and the idea in my mind turns out so much easier and prettier than I imagined! This happened when I styled this little Christmas arrangement.

Today is 20 MINUTE DECORATING, THE CHRISTMAS EDITION!
My blogging friends and I have created some easy, so pretty things you can do to decorate for Christmas in 20 minutes!
Thank you Lory at Designthusiam for organizing us!
I’m sharing how to make the easiest and sweetest little arrangement you will ever make!
Here’s how this little pot looked “before”…
You probably have a little pot of faux greenery kicking around your home somewhere.
I found 5 little plants I got at Ikea in my basement. I think I paid 3.00 for each of them.
Yes, those are the little faux plants you want to transform! They are the perfect base for a darling Christmas arrangement!
I transformed all 5 of them into Christmas decorations!
Here a before and after of just one! It’s hard to believe they are the same plant!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
With just a few faux green clippings and a couple other embellishments, I made 5 of these pretty arrangements in 20 minutes! All a little different!
Here’s what you will need…
- small faux plant
- pretty container- I used a white pot I had
- assorted faux evergreen clippings
I assembled all the thing I needed in one place to make it easy to create my evergreen arrangement.
LET’S MAKE AN EASY CHRISTMAS ARRANGEMENT
The first thing I did was put the little pot of faux greens into another pretty white pot. What a difference already!
I have a few plastic shoe boxes of what I call Christmas “bits and pieces”. Little snippets of faux greens and sparkly branches and leaves and more!
I love to cut apart garland and sprays of greens to makes “bits and pieces”. They come in so handy!
Using the bits of evergreen like the ones above I went to work and tucked them evenly into the plant. I didn’t even glue them in. One of the bits of evergreen had a pinecone stuck to it so I just added it to the arrangement too.
Starting to look like a Christmas arrangement already!
An arrangement looks nicer if there is more than one type of greens in them. So I found these little juniper type bits and pieces and added them to the arrangement here and there.
These little greens added so much more interest! I added them to the faux plant.
I also added a few sparkly leaves just for a little bit of bling!
In just a few minutes, the little faux plant was transformed into a pretty arrangement!
So easy, right?
I used this evergreen plant in a holiday vignette on my white buffet.
Now, it’s your turn! Grab a plant and create!
