Christmas table arrangement made with snowman hat container, greenery, and big fake candies.

Isn’t this just so darn cute!? 

Let’s get started!


Snowman container (TrendzandGemz)
2 Candy sprays (TrendzandGemz)
1 Cupcake pick (TrendzandGemz)
5 short glittered greenery bushes (TrendzandGemz)
3 red bulb ornaments (Hobby Lobby)
Glue Sticks
Hot Glue Pan
Hot Glue Gun
Wooden Picks
Floral Tape

TrendzAndGemz is one of my favorite floral suppliers. I use their products in many of my tutorials and the wreaths and arrangements that I sell. You can find all of the items that I’ve featured in my tutorials here


Step 1 – First we are going to separate the branches of the candy sprays. You could just stick these sprays in as is, but I rarely do that in my arrangements because I like to have a little more control over the design. Then you’ll just start pressing the greenery branches into the snowman container to make the base of the arrangement. 

Step 2 – Once you have some branches in and you can see where you’d like the cupcake, you’ll take the cupcake pick and trim the stem off, then attach it to the snowman container with a wooden pick.

(I originally just trimmed the stem shorter but even then I didn’t like where it sat. Sometimes you just have to play around with it until you find what you like.) .

Then you can continue to add greenery around it. Make sure you put the shorter pieces (like the glittered greenery) in front of the cupcake so you can still see it. 

Step 4 – Now you’ll start adding the candy pieces to give it a whimsical look. Remember that the cupcake is the focal point, so when you’re adding the rest of the candies, you want to place them so that they draw the eye to the cupcake. (Watch the video to see how I do this.) Add the ball stems at this point as well.

Step 5 – Next comes the ornaments. These are just regular Christmas tree bulbs, so first we have to get them ready to put in the arrangement. First, take the cap off the ornaments. Then for each one, you’ll take a wooden pick, and wrap several layers of floral tape around the end to make it thick enough to plug the hole in the ornament. Glue around the stem where it attaches to the ornament with your hot glue gun and set it to the side to dry. (I took this time to move around some of the candies until I really liked how the arrangement is looking.) Once the glue is dry, add them to the arrangement just like the candies. 

And that’s all there is to it!

If you are a wreath seller, make sure you watch the video because I share a couple tips about what kind of arrangements sell best in the winter and why.
