YOU WILL NEED:
Templates or Christmas centrepiece SVG files
Cardstock, various colours
Digital cutting machine (optional)
1. Print the templates from our website or trace around them overleaf, or use the SVG files with your digital cutting machine instead. Cut the foliage designs multiple times from several shades of cardstock. Stack the pieces into piles of the same or similar colours.
2. Crease down the centre of each holly leaf, pinching the card between your thumb and finger while following the natural curve of the leaf. Cut A4 card in half diagonally. Glue the two triangles together along the short edge with an overlap to form a diamond-shaped base.
3. Begin securing the foliage pieces onto the base with PVA glue, starting with the palest shades. Work around the edges of the base and position the leaves so that they radiate out from the centre. Add the darker foliage, overlapping the previous layer.
4. Allow the glue to dry completely. Add the stems of the berry sprigs and pine needle sprays in between the layers of leaves so that they stand out and add contrast to the arrangement.
