To decorate your holiday tables or simply add a touch of natural Christmas decor to your home, I’m sharing with you this little tutorial that was strongly inspired by a recent visit to England.

It’s an easy-to-make decoration that instantly beautifies your home with natural, colorful elements reminiscent of an authentic, old-fashioned Christmas. If you don’t have this type of candleholders at home, you can replace them with antique candleholders, which will also look very pretty.

What you need

Rosehips (fruit of rose bushes)
Crab apples (Malus Everest)
Shrub stems
Candles in a pretty colour

Step 1

Place the moss all around the inside of the candleholder, leaving the hole free for your candle. Fill the cup well – it’s okay if the moss falls back a little – it will accentuate the authentic look.

Step 2

Insert small stems you’ve found on a shrub – jasmine or ivy, for example. You can also choose to insert tiny fir branches.

Step 3

Cut your rosehips into small groups of two or three fruits, then prick them vertically into the moss. There are many different varieties, and I like the red ones for my Christmas decorations. These have a more elongated shape, which makes them original in this little composition.

Step 4

I add a few small crab apples because they make a very pretty decoration. I use them a lot to set off cakes, especially Kouglof or Bundt cakes, but they’re also perfect in small decorations like this one.

Step 5

Place your candle in the cup, and make sure you choose different colors (while keeping to the same tones). The accumulation of different-sized bowls will look great, and you’ll be able to keep this natural Christmas decoration in your home for several days.

These natural arrangement enabled me to decorate a mushroom-themed Christmas table, giving a certain rhythm to the centerpiece, composed of fabric garlands, fir branches and ornaments. You can see how they look in this article.
