Set a festive mood or brighten up any outdoor entryway, deck, patio or balcony by creating a unique Outdoor Holiday Planters.
Choose branches cut from a variety of trees and shrubs to pack in lots of eye-catching colors and textures. This holiday container arrangement includes slim birchwood logs, twigs, lots of cedar, juniper and evergreen branches with decorative pine cones, ribbon and that eye-catching ornament.
When you'd like your container displays to emphasize a Yuletide theme, combine the traditional red and green colours. Some evergreen stalks accented with sprays of red berry branches and red netting or ribbon makes a festive and fun arrangement you can enjoy for the Holidays and into the New Year. Add even more interest and texture by adding painted dried pine cones.
Magnolia leaves are featured in these urns. Urns make interesting planter containers as do vintage-style cream cans, wood boxes, wire baskets and even barrels.
Decorative Planter Helpful Hints and Suggestions
Fill pots or urns with sand or soil (be sure to place your containers before you fill with sand or soil)
Anchor greenery such as pine, boxwood, cedar, etc. into the sand/soil
Fill in around the greenery and tree material with other greenery from your local greenhouse.
Add beautiful colour with berry sprigs, magnolia leaves, pine cones and even Christmas balls.
Finish with bows, ribbon, burlap or decorative mesh. You can even 'let it glow' by adding lights!
It's a good idea to water your plant creations, even in winter; if you live where it freezes, provide water whenever things warm up enough to thaw the soil.
Pine cones, while adding to the overall charm of the outdoor planter, come in many different shapes and sizes.
Even a small outdoor container can make a big impact. Start with a unique shaped or smaller container. Add shorter, fuller branches, popping in elements of colour and even a 'surprise' feature.
Make your theme Earth-toned and enjoy your planter for the whole winter.
