Bringing you a quick and festive DIY today; it’s one of my favorite ways to add a touch of nature during the holidays. I will show you how to DIY a Holiday centerpiece in 15 minutes with mini Topiary Trees.

Seriously, this could not be any easier. These adorable topiary trees come in various shapes and sizes, and they’re surprisingly affordable! I found these at Trader Joe’s, but you can also find them at most grocery stores. I’ve even seen them on Amazon.
What you will need:
Prep your container.
A pic of the vintage bowl before starting.
Line your container with plastic (unless you have chosen a basket with drainage holes), then add rocks for drainage.
I taped my plastic garbage bag in the vintage bowl. Then, I added a bit of paper (any kind will do) and more plastic to hold the plants in place.
Now, it’s time to add the plants.
I used three topiaries in each container. I chose three because I like odd numbers. You could add as many as fit into your container. Both of my containers are about 20 inches wide.
Quick tip: Vary the height of the topiaries, as it will be more visually appealing.
Keep the tops of the pots to the height of the edge of your container.
Once you are happy with the plant’s placement, add moss. I snuck in the mini lights to see what they would look like (and to cover the battery pack). You could also add these at the end.
The moss needs to cover all the plastic. I’ve used a variety of types here for more texture.
Adding touches of nature to the holidays is one of my absolute favorite ways to decorate. You can see a similar idea here. I usually make these arrangements around Thanksgiving, leave them natural, and then add decorations afterward for a more festive feel to take me through the Christmas season.
Here is how they look once I’ve added a few festive touches.
You can add ribbons, mini ornaments, mini string lights, and colored moss to make it more festive.
The lights are probably my favorite.
The beauty of using these Mini Topiary Trees is that they are easy to care for. Keep them in a cool, dry location and water every 2-3 days.
I told you it was easy! What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
