In this video, Anton shares tips and hacks that you can do, plus items you’ll need for this Christmas project!



Make the flowers standout with this simple trick: When using artificial ones, adjust the petals by bending the spine carefully so that they open up and form a nice shape. This makes the flowers look alive! Also, you may group different flowers so that they come in clusters.

Another rule that Anton abides is following the triangle rule. Build the elements from top to bottom, following the shape of a triangle so that everything is spread out evenly. 


And in the spirit of the season, Anton went all out on silvers and reds! “The red really made everything pop out and shine. Mix it with silver accessories to make it look brighter!” he says.
