I accidentally volunteered to make an Xmas decoration for school concert - please help!

I offered to help the extremely over-stretched music teacher at my kids' secondary school - i meant with music but she asked me to make something for a frontispiece for the Christmas concert (which she described as a small, intimate affair, in a nearby church, but not religiousy). Crafty is really not one of my skills! I think it is to go on a table at the front of the stage - so not big - ideally something very simple but effective! Will try to involve some children/YPs if that is not overcomplicating things too much...
I would be very grateful for any ideas!

I'd go for some kind of arrangement of holly and evergreens, with maybe some gold sprayed pine cones or white candles. I'm sure Pinterest would have loads of ideas.

We are doing Christmas decorations and wreaths in nursery at the moment to sell for funds. What looks great is a piece of tree bark (long-ish, curved if possible), line with moss with one chunky candle and some natural materials (cones, acorns, cinammon sticks, star anise stuck in).
