Christmas greenery is a beautiful way to bring a sense of the outdoors into your home. I have to admit that I hadn’t planned to do these projects. I happened to get a great deal at Hobby Lobby and decided to add to my Christmas decor this year. Hobby Lobby had 66% off their Christmas items. The greenery was about $3.40 apiece, the ribbon was about $2.00, the two small galvanized buckets were about $1.70, and the bigger one was about $2.72. In the end, I paid an average of $6.77 for each arrangement.

Let’s get started…

  • 3 Greenery Branches (Hobby Lobby)
  • 3 Galvanized Buckets
  • 2 Floral Foam Squares (Dollar Tree)
  • Red Merry Christmas Ribbon
  • Garland Ties
  • Cutting Pliers
  • Glue Gun
  • Velcro Dots or Strips

Prepping the Buckets

There isn’t much to prep the buckets. I used a knife to cut one of the foams in half, and these were for the small buckets. I placed the uncut foam inside the big bucket. I didn’t glue the foam pieces to the bottom, and it still held fine. The reasoning behind this was for storage purposes. Also, just in case I decide to fill the bucket with something else in the future.

Add the Greenery

I cut out the branches from each greenery bundle. I made sure to leave the stem long enough to have a good height. Then I just started adding the greenery to the foam.

Hide the Foam

As you finish adding the greenery, you will notice that the foam is still peeking out. I used the garland ties I bought at Dollar Tree to cover the bottom and hide the foam.

Add the Ribbon

I sized the ribbon by wrapping it around the bucket before cutting it. Then I glued velcro dots to the ends. One velcro dot was on the outer side, and the other was on the inside opposite ends.

That’s all!

I added the ribbon to the bottom, as shown on the left, but I changed my mind on the placement, and since I didn’t glue it, I was able to move it up.
