Hi, my name is Terina Gillette, and I'm a professional event coordinator, and we are here today at the Christmas Place Inn located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. And we are going to learn how to make a beautiful Christmas arrangement inside of a stocking. In order to do this project these are the types of things that you are going to need. We are going to need a Christmas stocking, any size of your choice. A variety of different types of flowers that you are going to want to put into your stocking arrangement. A ribbon which is optional. You are going to need either floral wire or a chenille stem, or a pipe cleaner. And you are going to need to have some cutters if you don't have the exact size. And I'll explain that just a little bit later. of stockings so the size of your stocking you may or may not need floral cutters for this. Alright in order to get started the first thing that we are going to do is pick one focal flower. And this can be any type of flower of your choice. I kind of like the larger size flowers but you can pick any size that you want. Just make sure that it's your focal piece. And then we are just going to hand build an arrangement. I'm going to add a couple of pieces of greenery here to that. And some of this pretty greenery here on the side. And the idea is just to kind of look, look at your holding your arrangement and see how it looks to you. Make sure that it's visually appealing. Once you get your arrangement that the way that you like it inside of your hand holding it like this and what you want to do is take your floral wire or your chenille stem and wrap it around. Just wrap it a few times and then secure it with a twist. And then how do we get this inside of our stocking and it look nice? There's a couple of different things that we can do. You can just tuck it inside of the stocking as just like this. And then you want to take a safety pin and secure it. Or if the stems are long enough and you can go further down inside of the stocking. If you want to add a bow onto that then what you can do is take an add your bow onto the front of the stocking. You can add with your chenille stem add it to this arrangement. Or also pin it in place. You want to make sure that you pin the arrangement to the inside part of the stocking if you are going to actually hang it up on a mantle or over a fireplace. If you are not and make sure that the stems are just long enough to stay into the base of your stocking arrangement. And there you have it. A beautiful arrangement inside of a Christmas stocking.
