DIY Holiday Decor: How to Make a Wintery Faux Foliage Bowl

Create a stunning DIY holiday decor with this step-by-step guide on making a wintery foliage bowl. Learn how to craft a beautiful centerpiece that brings the essence of winter into your home.


Hi there, I hope everything is going well for you. Today, I want to share with you a simple upcycling holiday craft idea. The three main materials you will need for this craft are a bowl, a cork, and some wintery foliage. I used a cork lid from a salt bottle that I had kept, and a pink bowl I had bought a few months ago for just 50 cents. You can easily put this project together in less than 15 minutes, and it looks absolutely beautiful once it's displayed. So, if you're ready, let's start creating!

Pink bowl, foam block, wintery faux foliage, cork, and pinecones

Here's what you'll need

  • One bowl (any size works, I am using a smaller bowl for my design)
  • Wintery faux foliage
  • Cork (I am reusing a cork from a salt bottle)
  • Hot glue
  • Floral cutters (to cut foliage to size)
  • Pinecones (optional)

Attaching the cork to the bowl

Hand holding cork on bottom of pink bowl
To begin, turn your bowl over so that the bottom is facing up. Next, apply a thin layer of hot glue to the cork and place it in the center of the bowl. The cork I am using has a flat bottom, which helps keep the bowl balanced and prevents it from tipping over.

Adding in the foam block and foliage

Hand inserting foam block into bowl

To add your foam block, apply a little hot glue to the bottom of the foam block and then place it in the middle of the bowl. 

After that, take your foliage and start inserting it into the foam of the block. Play around with arranging your foliage until you get the desired arrangement. Cut any of the foliage pieces to the appropriate size. Once you're satisfied with the arrangement, you can add in your pinecones, but this is completely optional. I thought it was a nice touch of nature to the wintery foliage bowl display.

You're all done! Wasn't that a simple project? I love how it turned out. My favorite thing about this is the soft pink color of the bowl, along with the wintery foliage. It's a lovely combination. 
Thank you all so much for visiting and creating this with me. I'll see you soon.
