Christmas ornament making supplies
By making your own Christmas arrangement with orchids, you can vary endlessly and add your favorite orchids and Christmas decorations. In this video let's see what you need when you lay out a Field Inlay and how to put it together step by step.
What do you need to make your own Christmas arrangement?
- Inlay of your choice
- 3 Kolibri Orchids (note: make sure you have the correct pot size Kolibri Orchids chooses that fit in this inlay)
- 3 Kolibri Greens with pot size 6 cm
- 6 WaterWicks (watering wicks)
- Christmas decoration
- Watering can with water
Take the tray and place the inlay on the tray. With a watering can you can fill the inlay with water up to the indicated line. Make sure that the water does not exceed the line/curvature of the inlay, this will prevent the orchids and green plants from getting too much water.
We have arrived at an important step in making your Christmas arrangement. Take the WaterWicks and push them to the bottom of the grow pot Kolibri orchids and Kolibri greens. Make sure you have the Kolibri Orchids by the heart. This keeps the Kolibri Orchids are well placed in the breeding pot.
Place the Kolibri Orchids in the inlay of the Christmas piece. The strings of the WaterWicks must fall into the water. Thanks to these strings, the orchids and green plants can provide themselves with water.
Take the moss and place it around the inlay. Secure the moss with a gold iron wire.
Place the Kolibri Greens in the inlay.
Time to add the Christmas decorations to your Christmas arrangement! Decorate the Christmas piece with Christmas baubles according to your own taste. We have opted for golden Christmas decorations and Christmas lights. Extra nice during the dark days.
You are now done with your own Christmas arrangement with orchids, super fun! Thanks to the WaterWicks, the Kolibri orchids and Kolibri Greens provide themselves with water. Check after a week if the water has run out. Do you no longer see water in the inlay? Then you can supplement it by adding water in the middle of the inlay.
