by Northern Life

A trickier one but perfect fit for today’s massive woodland trend


  • 1 rectangle wooden board
  • Red paint
  • 1 red poinsettia (10 cm diameter pot)
  • Moss
  • Cones
  • Twigs
  • 1 red, self-extinguishing candle
  • Adhesive tack
  • Freezer bag
  • Branches and leaves
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun


  1. First, paint the wooden board red.
  2. Attach three balls of adhesive tack to the underside of the candle. Then press the candle to the board to fix it.
  3. Wrap the poinsettia with a freezer bag. This will protect the arrangement from leaking water. Afterwards, cover the pot completely with moss.
  4. Decorate the moss pot with different add-ons of your choice. There’s no limit to creativity!
  5. Fix the poinsettia to the wooden board using the hot glue gun.
  6. Cones, branches and leaves are glued between the poinsettia and the candle to make the arrangement flow.
