As Christmas approaches, you will want to start thinking about how you can slowly start to transform your home to match the season. When considering decorations, you may want to include and build upon what you already have.
Artificial plants have long reigned as popular decor to have in the home. You probably have a few placed together on tabletops and window sills around your home. They don’t have to be left untouched during your Christmas decorating! Read on to see how you can create simple but stunning Christmas vignettes with the artificial plants you already have.
1. Add Some Preserved Flowers
You may like to add colour and texture to your artificial plants. What better way to do that then to add another natural element to the arrangement? Preserved flowers are similar to artificial plants, wherein they do not need watering. However, it is important to keep these away from sunlight if you are adding them to your artificial plant.
Fitting into the Christmas theme, your preserved flowers should be white, red, or a rich red-pink. Simply place them within your artificial plant pot if there is enough space, or place them in a thin, clear vase to place alongside your artificial plants.
2. Wrap It Up
If you have spare wrapping paper on hand, then this is for you! An easy way to add Christmas flair to your plant is to wrap the pot in wrapping paper and Christmas ribbon.
We would recommend using subtle white or red paper with little to no patterning, but feel free to use whatever paper prints you desire. All you need is scissors, tape, (or glue) to wrap the base how you would a Christmas present, and ribbon to finish it off. You may like to add a few small wrapped gifts to be placed along the plants for an even more festive vignette.
3. Add Some (Tea) Lights
In your artificial plant arrangement, you can’t go wrong with adding a source of light for timeless beauty and holiday spirit. For a no-fuss but effective option, you may like to add tealights interspersed through your artificial plants.
Place these tealights atop a Christmas candle holder. Christmas candle holders refer to gold, silver or white pieces with curved pillar shapes. These will elevate your tealights physically, and present a more refined look.
4. Fun With Baubles & Berries
Like the wrapping paper idea, if you have some spare baubles and artificial berries or holly berries, then this will be a great idea! The berries will particularly look festive inside the pot plant or amongst the artificial plant leaves. Or if you go with the baubles, they will make a statement placed in between the potted plants, and even inside! There is a lot to play with here!
5. Add Flare With A Bow
Ribbons are a must-have when it comes to Christmas decorating and wrapping. They are
an easy addition to potted plants. Whether it’s a simple circle of ribbon along the base and rim of the pot, or a bow secured perfectly at the centre, you can’t go wrong with one!
1. Think Of The Walls
Your potted plant arrangement might be against a wall that is looking a bit bare. For example, your arrangement may be atop a console table. You might want to add wall art that is Christmas themed onto the wall above it. This could range from visuals that include Christmas colours, biblical themed art, or even a family photo to invoke a nostalgic Christmas aesthetic.
If you don’t want to replace your existing wall fixture, then the simple addition of fairy lights weaved across your plants and along the frame will surely do the trick!
2. Fill A Mason Jar
To add a more natural yet festive element to your artificial plant arrangement, you may want to consider filling a mason jar. Pine cones and leaves, Eucalyptus, and artificial berries are all strongly associated with Christmas, and can be found in your backyard to create a rustic scene.
Mason jars allow for endless versatility. If you don’t want to go with a more flashy approach for your mason jar, you can fill it with shiny baubles and tinsel instead. The choice is yours!
