Gather supplies. I took trimmings from my cedar pyramid hedge and my golden euonymus shrubs. I also had dried seed heads, pinecones and fake berries in my craft supply box

Cut smaller pieces off your trimmings. I used pieces ranging from 6" to 12".

Layer evergreen pieces in bowl of planter as a base layer.

Keep adding pieces ,making sure the stems are pointed towards the centre so they don't show.

Image for Step 5

I added pieces to the top and bottom to create a full shape.

Image for Step 6

Cut pieces of your secondary greenery. Trim the stems so approx 4" is bare. This will make it easier to add to the evergreens.

Keep adding pieces until you are satisfied with how it looks. I used three larger pieces then added some thinner single stems.

Prep your dried plants. These seed heads need to be attached to some sort of stem. I pushed some craft wire through the seed head and twisted it because the stem broke off.

With the wire firmly attached to the seed head, we're ready to attach it to a stem.

Image for Step 11

I used a stem from some of my cuttings. Cut a 4"-6" piece, remove any leaves, then wrap the wire around it.

Image for Step 12

Place the seed head in the greenery.

Image for Step 13

Prep and place the remaining pieces. Remember that an odd number is more aesthetically pleasing than an even number.

Cut off small bunches of berries from the large piece. These are fake berries I purchased from the dollar store.

Image for Step 15

Again I used a 4" piece of stem from my cuttings. I attached the berries by wrapping it and the stem with florist tape.

Image for Step 16

The berries add a nice pop of colour. I added five small bunches.

Image for Step 17

Prep your pinecones. I twisted some craft wire around inside the cone near the base.

Image for Step 18

Twist the wire around a bare stem and place it in your arrangement.
