Learn how to arrange our evergreen bundles to create gorgeous containers in a snap.
One bundle contains two large Fir pieces, a bunch of Cedar, a bunch each of Pine, Cedar and Juniper to easily create evergreen arrangements. Each bundle with fill a 12-16″ container. For this example a container with a 14″ opening was used.
After separating out the different types of greens trim the edges of each stem and soak in water. (To read more about caring for greens click here.) Trim the first couple side branches off the base of your Fir stems and set aside.
Place the Fir stems towards the back of the container. This 14″ diameter container is filled with fresh potting soil. If using leftover potting soil use a soil knife to break up roots so that the evergreen stems can easily be pushed into the soil.
If using Birch logs add them now. Since they are top heavy they need to be buried deep.
Use the Pine stems and leftover Fir trimmings for filler. The pine will slightly trail, have some stick out the sides of the pot.
The Cedar stems perfectly spill out of the front and sides of pots. Use the stems to circle the outside edges of the container.
Add Juniper stems at the end to fill in extra spots. Because they have berries they are a little more delicate than the rest of the greens.
Most decorations like picks and twigs have skinny stems that can easily be added and removed. To add depth to your container put these decorations throughout the entire container and not just in the front. Two tinsel and bell stems were added about halfway back.
A berry bomb and 3 pine cones were placed toward the front of the arrangement. From start to finish this container took about 10 minutes to create.
