Make your own Christmas piece

Make your own Christmas piece. There’s nothing as nice as a bit of December atmosphere at home! With the holidays approaching, it’s time to think about the nicest decorations. In addition to a beautiful tree, wreath or lighting, a festive Christmas arrangement should not be missing. The best thing about a Christmas piece? You can easily make it yourself. Beautiful for your own living room, but also great to give as a gift! In this blog you will find out how to make a Christmas piece step by step.

What do you need to make your own Christmas piece?

To get started, you need a good base with which to make your Christmas piece. Buy green oasis (this is a kind of foam) or clay for this. It is also useful to have iron wire, a knife and a pair of cord scissors ready. And for the Christmas piece itself? You can use anything for that. Choose some beautiful branches from your garden or go looking in the forest. Use Christmas baubles, pine cones, garlands or other Christmas decorations. Also consider including a candle in your Christmas decoration. Of course you can also go to the garden center for the most beautiful materials.

Ideas for your Christmas piece

What your Christmas piece will look like is entirely up to you. Let your creativity run wild! Are you looking for some inspiration? Then think about the shape of your Christmas piece. For example, make a Christmas arrangement on a platter, fill a wicker basket with your most beautiful Christmas material, or use a vase as a base for your Christmas arrangement. Or go for terracotta pots or a Christmas garland. And how about a Christmas piece in the shape of a wreath?

Step by step how to make your own Christmas piece

Your materials are ready and you are bursting with ideas. Time to get started! How do you make your own Christmas piece?

Soak the oasis in water for at least an hour. When the green foam is thoroughly wet, you can start. Of course it is also possible to make your Christmas piece with clay.
Cut the foam or clay to the correct size for the shape you have chosen. This base should extend one or two centimeters above your shape.
Do you opt for a low piece? Then start with the sides. For a high piece, start with the back.

Cut the branches diagonally so that you can easily insert them into the foam or clay. Another advantage is that the branches absorb water better, so your Christmas arrangement stays beautiful for longer.
If you also use a candle in your piece, insert it after the first branches. Keep it safe and make sure the lit candle doesn’t come into contact with the rest of your Christmas arrangement.
Now let’s get started with the rest of the Christmas piece. Continue working from the outside in for a low piece, or from back to front for a high piece.

Make sure that all your material is clearly visible.
Done with the branches? Then it’s time for the decorations. Choose a nice spot for your Christmas baubles, pine cones or other extras. Would you prefer a quieter Christmas piece? Then leave out the extra decoration.
Now just the finishing touches. Fill every spot that is still empty with, for example, a little moss or a few beautiful berries. This is how you complete your unique Christmas piece!

Would you rather have a Christmas piece delivered? At deBloemist.nl you have a wide choice and can easily have flowers delivered to any address in the Netherlands. Choose the date and part of the day that suits you best and before you know it we will be on your doorstep. This is how you will get through the dark months!

Making a Christmas wreath

If you also want to put the Christmas spirit in your house, making a Christmas wreath is easy to make! In this blog we explain how you can quickly and easily making a Christmas wreath.
Start with the base, you can tie it yourself with green. But you can also buy an attached wreath, which often does not make much difference in cost. We give you tips on how to build a wreath from the ground up and then decorate it. If you start with a tied wreath, you can skip the first part about tying the basic wreath.

What materials do you need for making a Christmas wreath.

For the base of your Christmas wreath

  • Straw or iron base
  • Spool of Wikeldaad
  • Christmas green, nobilis, various conifers and possibly moss

For decorating your Christmas wreath

  • Pine cones
  • Dried fruit
  • Christmas balls
  • Ribbon
  • Lights
  • Other Christmas decorations (can be anything you like to put on them)
  • Cinnamon stick and/or anise stars

Making Christmas wreath basic

Step 1: The base of your Christmas wreath

It is easiest to use a straw wreath as a basis, these are available in different sizes and already have some volume. This means you have to use less Christmas greenery. If you use an iron ring, you must first fill it up and give it volume.

  • Cut your greenery into branches of about 10 cm
  • Tie your wrapping wire to the wreath

Now start tying by placing the sprigs of Christmas greenery on the wreath in one direction (it doesn’t matter whether you tie clockwise or counterclockwise).
Every time you have placed some twigs on the surface, secure them by wrapping the wire around the wreath, pull the wire tight but not too tight. If you pull the wire too tight, you will not get any volume in your wreath. Repeat this until you have completed the Christmas greenery.

Step 2.1: Decorating it as a hanging Christmas wreath

If you are sure that you are going to hang the wreath, you can take this into account when decorating. If you are going to hang the wreath on a ribbon, start by attaching the ribbon.
You can also take this into account when dividing the decorations, it can look nice if you attach some decoration to the bottom of the wreath. For example, a few large Christmas baubles on a ribbon, a Christmas bell or Santa Claus, simply divide the other decorations over the wreath. If you want peace in the wreath, make groups with decorations. If the wreath is a bit messier, divide the decorations randomly over the wreath.

Step 2.2: Decorate as a horizontal Christmas wreath

If you are going to place the wreath on a table or cupboard, take the placement of your decoration into account. If you place the wreath on a tray because you want to place a lantern or a large candle in it, make sure that there are no large decorations on the inside of the wreath. These can get in the way when placing the wind light or candle. Furthermore, you divide the decorations as you want, randomly or in groups. If you want to make the wreath as an Advent wreath, start with the four candle holders and distribute them parallel over the wreath.

Why do we put flowers on the grave?

In many places in the world it is a tradition to place flowers on the grave. To have different meanings and purposes depending on culture, personal belief or religion. We have listed a number of reasons:

1: Reverence and respect:

Placing flowers on the grave as a way of showing respect and reverence to the deceased. Flowers are considered a symbol of beauty and tenderness, by placing flowers on the grave you show love and appreciation for the deceased.

2: Commemoration:

Flowers can serve as a tangible reminder of the deceased. They can help recall positive memories and events. These memories are important in remembering and processing grief.

3: Comfort:

For many people, flowers have a calming and comforting effect. Seeing colorful flowers on the grave can bring a sense of peace and serenity in the midst of grief. Placing flowers can therefore provide comfort to the surviving relative and help with the coping process.

4: Symbolism:

Different flowers have different symbolic meanings, and you can also choose to place the deceased’s favorite flower on the grave. Some examples of symbolic meanings, lilies are often associated with purity, roses with love and respect, and chrysanthemums with mourning. By choosing specific flowers, people can convey certain emotions and meanings.

5: Connection with nature:

Flowers are part of nature and are often associated with the life cycle. Placing flowers on the grave can represent a sense of connection with nature and the progression of life.

6: Expression of emotion:

Sometimes words can seem inadequate to express grief and sorrow. Flowers can act as a way to express emotions that are difficult to put into words. Placing the deceased’s favorite flower or a flower with a clear meaning can sometimes say more than words.

7: Tradition and ritual:

Placing flowers on graves is an ancient tradition followed in many cultures. It is often part of religious rituals and funeral customs intended to show respect for the deceased and support the family. In many countries, All Souls’ Day is the day on which Catholics commemorate the deceased. All Souls’ Day is on November 2, the day after All Saints’ Day.

8: Gathering and sharing:

Placing flowers on the grave can also be a communal activity that brings people together to share their grief and offer support to each other. Consider, for example, the date of birth or death of the deceased. In general, laying flowers on a grave can be a way to express feelings of loss, love and respect, and to connect with the memory of the deceased.

All Saints Day explained:

is the celebration of all known and unknown saints. In the year 731, November 1 was designated as a day of remembrance for saints of the Church who did not have their own day. The date of November 1, recognized by the Catholic and Protestant churches, was established by Pope Gregory III (731-741), when he assigned a chapel to all the martyrs in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and ordered an annual celebration. The Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates it on the first Sunday after Pentecost.

In many cultures, All Saints’ Day is followed by All Souls’ Day, which is a day of national mourning for all the people we miss. The most common thing is for families to get together and leave flowers at the burial site of their loved one. Since November 1 takes place in a colder time of year, the most popular flower is the Chrysanthemum, both as a cut flower and in a pot.

How it is celebrated around the world:
In France, All Saints’ Day is called “Toussaint” and is a recognized public holiday. Every year on November 1, approximately 25 million pot chrysanthemums are placed at French cemeteries. The cemeteries are therefore full of color.

In Poland, All Saints’ Day is also celebrated on November 1 and is called Wszystkich Swietych. After All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day (Zaduski) is celebrated. This is always a very busy day. Every cemetery parking lot is full and there are lines of vendors surrounding the cemetery, selling fall flowers and candles. Guard soldiers in uniform are placed at military cemeteries. Chrysanthemums are “THE” flowers and are mainly associated with death. The enormous number of burning candles in the evening provide a beautiful view of the cemeteries and are intended to illuminate the way to God.

Slovak traditions are very similar to those of Poland. Slovaks visit family and sometimes travel enormous distances to do so. They go to the cemetery where their ancestors lie. The graves are covered with a blanket of flowers and candles are burned, it is a day to remember the deceased family. People think about life and eat together.

In Germany the holiday is called All Saints Day. It is also a public holiday in some parts of Germany.
A traditional decoration that you can find at the cemetery is “Newwling” (a traditional candle made of 2 wicks of different colors red, white, blue, yellow or green twisted around a cone and lit. It is a tradition to morning to go to church and listen to the sermons which are all about the message of living as a saint. Then the family gathers for big meals and listening to the church bells ringing. It is said that the souls of the dead wandering around on earth among the living and that the ringing of the bell is a sign to be released from the earth. After the meal, people go to the cemetery to commemorate their loved one, often taking candles or lanterns with them, just like flowers and pine branches. Children are given All Saints’ Day bread “strietzel”. This sweet braided bread is often eaten after noon during a festive “Kaffee und Kuchen”.

In England, families also visit the cemetery and bring bunches of flowers to decorate the grave. In the church, the names of the deceased can be read out upon request and  in some regions the day can end with a play.

In Italy, All Saints’ Day “Festa di Tutti i Santi” is both a religious and a national holiday. Every year on November 1, the Catholic saints are celebrated together. It is a day when people visit family and friends, give each other gifts and extend best wishes. If Italians have the same name as a saint, it is also a special day for them.

Spain celebrates this holiday over 2 days, namely October 31, November 1 and November 2. It is mainly called the day of the dead. Festivals and processions are an important part of this tradition, as is the performance of the play “Don Juan Tenorio”. At the end of the day, people gather at the cemetery to pray for a deceased loved one and lay marigolds and gifts next to the graves of their loved ones.

Combine autumn berries and flowers

Autumn is known for its beautiful palette of colors and abundance of fall berries. As summer turns to autumn, trees and shrubs undergo a metamorphosis that transforms the landscape into a vibrant and warm scene.

The autumn colors in nature are breathtaking and diverse. Leaves on trees and shrubs change from their usual green hues to a wealth of warm and vibrant colors, such as red, orange, yellow and deep red. This change is caused by the decrease in chlorophyll in the leaves, revealing other pigments such as anthocyanins and carotenoids. The result is a picturesque landscape that seems to reveal new shades every day.

Autumn is a time of abundance of flowers and berries in beautiful colors, the season invites you to make beautiful bouquets or a vase with a few berry branches and oak leaves, with which you can make the atmosphere in the house cozy and warm. It is a time when nature displays its artistic skills in color and life before the winter calm sets in.

Autumn, when berries and flowers meet in a dance of color, to paint the world with a masterpiece of seasonal splendor.”
