My third floral arrangement with L’Atelier Rouge might just be my favorite, because a) it’s incredibly creative, and b) it’s a great way to repurpose something you probably already have… your Christmas tree! This one, while easy to make, does take quite a bit of time (attaching the individual bundles of baby breath is time consuming…) but it is so worth it. If you get a few people to help you with it, it will go by much quicker.
- Pine Tree (stripped) // aka, the top of your Christmas tree!
- White Baby’s Breath
- Pine Cones (optional: spray them silver with spray paint!)
- Floral Wire + Clippers
- Large Vase
Begin by clipping off a little bundle of baby’s breath, as shown above.
Using a piece of florist’s wire, attach it to a branch on your pine tree by wrapping the wire around the branch.
Continue, until the entire tree is covered in baby’s breath.
Insert it into a large vase.
Using more floral wire, begin attaching the pine cones to your tree.
Done! So pretty!
