You can dress up your home this festive season with a Christmas silk flower arrangement so spectacular you'll wonder how you did it on your own. Most people find themselves humming along with the Christmas classics the minute they set their eyes on the festively bright arrangement of green, red, and white poinsettias, Christmas cactus, and berries that typically come in a traditional arrangement. However, you can also achieve this festivity with silk flowers.

Besides being festive and beautiful, you silk flower arrangement will be more economical, and they will last longer. An additional benefit is that they are very easy to make and can therefore be prepared seasons before the rush of the Christmas holiday sets in. In addition to a container and floral adhesive, you must also have a pair of pliers, wire cutters, flora tape, foam, and tape to make your Christmas silk flower arrangement.

When deciding on a container for your Christmas silk flower arrangement, make sure that you pick an object that is lightweight, and isn't too wide or too narrow. Urn-shaped containers make a good starting point when making your silk flower arrangement. Different textures for your flowers will lend your floral arrangement a sense of variety. Picking the right color of the silk flowers, holly, and berries is of course very important, as is examining their edges carefully before buying. Reject frayed or damaged edges over ones that look fresh and natural.

Then you should start arranging the flowers. Open each flower carefully so that it is wide open and reveals its actual shape. Carefully slide the stems of the flowers you purchased into the foam. Many people simply add a bit of floral wire to the end of each stem to give it a longer appearance. You should vary the size of your Christmas silk flower stems to have the prettiest arrangement. A more beautiful arrangement will result, and will have more shape.
