DIY | Christmas Ball as Vase with Dried Flowers

Weihnachtskugel als Vase mit Trockenblumen

Maybe you are looking forward to the winter and Christmas season as much as I do? I’m already in full crafting mood and decorate the apartment with homemade decoration elements. Today I show you my first Christmas DIY this year: a Christmas ball as vase with dried flowers.

Dried flowers are just so simply to use and should not be missed in the Christmas season. For today’s DIY, a Christmas ball serves as vase for dried flowers, such as pampas grass, bunnytail, lunaria and eucalyptus. The small Christmas decoration is attached to a wooden star and makes a beautiful table decoration.

With the following step by step instructions you can easily make the Christmas vase yourself!


Here you can see what tools I used for the Christmas tree ball with dried flowers. You need a hot glue gun with hot glue sticks and scissors.

Step 1: Prepare ball

In the first step I remove the golden holder from the Christmas ball.

The golden holder can be easily pulled off.

Step 2: Glue Christmas ball on star

I glue the Christmas ball with hot glue onto the wooden star.

It will look like this:

Step 3: Attach ribbon

Now I attach the gold lace ribbon to the opening of the Christmas ball.

To make sure the ribbon holds well, I hot glue it to the Christmas ball.

Then I cut the ends of the lace ribbon.

It will look like this:

Step 4: Cut dried flowers

Now I cut the dried flowers with the scissors.

To make the dried flower arrangement look more interesting, I cut the stems to different lengths.

The final step is to simply insert the dried flowers into the Christmas ball.

And ready is the Christmas decoration! I hope this DIY has made you as much fun as me and you like the sight of the special Christmas vase!
