  • Christmas ball

  • Floral foam island

  • Planter

  • Wreath

  • String lights


  1. Crown a double wreath with Christmas ornaments: Place a floral-foam island inside a planter and our wreath (get the how-to) on its rim. 

  2. Fill center with matching ornaments, using floral wire to secure a few at a time to the island.

  3. Interweave two 35-light strings among balls and boughs, wrapping up and down around topper.
