Make your own Christmas centrepiece

Follow these 4 simple steps

Step 1

Assemble your flowers and foliage and cut the oasis block to fit your decorative bowl before soaking in water for 10 minutes. Hint - if using a candle, cut a 3cm deep well in the oasis the same diameter of the candle before soaking.

Step 2

Cut the stems of the foliage at an angle and remove excess leaves before starting to insert into the foliage. Hint - place your stems in a circle shape so you can see the formation of the display before piercing the oasis.

Step 3

Add your candle so you can gauge how high you can arrange the flowers and berries,and cut the stems of the flowers at an angle before placing between the foliage. If using clumps of berries, wrap the stems in florist tape to make one stem.

Step 4

If you have cones or baubles, thread wire through then trim and twist the ends to make individual picks and insert between the foliage and flowers. Once complete, display on the table and water every few days to keep the oasis damp.
