Little moss covered trees line this holiday table for a Christmas centerpiece that's inspired by the beloved evergreen. The terra cotta colored pots, ornaments and ribbon make the mossy green trees pop and add even more festivity to the display. I anchored the centerpiece on a silky table runner with evergreen clippings from the trees in my yard, which tied everything together both visually and aromatically.

9 1/2 inch styrofoam cones
1 package of sheet moss
green floral pins
small terra cotta pots
styrofoam blocks to anchor the trees
1/2 inch width branch from an outdoor tree
Step 1: Wrap a sheet of paper around the styrofoam cone and cut around it to make a pattern
Step 2: Lay the paper pattern on the sheet of moss and cut out with scissors.
Step 3: Wrap the moss around the cone--trimming as needed to get a good fit.
Step 4: Secure the moss to the cone by inserting green floral pins through the moss into the cone, at the seam.
Step 5: Tuck the moss in at the top of the cone and secure with a floral pin.
Step 6: Cut an outdoor tree branch into a 6 inch length.
Step 7: Stick the branch into the center of the base of the wrapped cone to form the trunk for the mossy tree.
Step 8: Cut the styrofoam block into chunks that will fit snugly in the terra cotta pots.
Step 9: Poke the trunk of the tree into the styrofoam in the pot, and then cover the edges with moss. Arrange your table with the trees, a runner and ornaments for a festive display, and that's it!
