|A pot. The container should be filled with old potting soil, garden soil, or sand to anchor the arrangement.
|Greenery. You can use a variety of greenery like balsam fir, pine, spruce, false cypress, holly, and boxwood.
|Berries. Including branches with berries - real or artificial - is the best way to add a pop of colour to your winter arrangement.
|Branches. Any type of branches will do. Popular choices include tall narrow branches to provide vertical interest, the twisted branches of curly willow for whimsy, or the brilliant red twigs of dogwood shrubs for bold colour. Or, select birch stems which can be clustered in the middle of the pot to show off their attractive bark.
|Other decorations. Pinecones, glittery stars, and other decorative elements add festive fun to your planter.
