Hey! Are you tired of my bad puns yet? haha!
Finally, after many years of meaning to do this my friend Erin came over and helped me do up an urn for the front porch. I have always been rather intimidated about this. I don’t consider myself a natural when it comes to doing up flower arrangements for the house and as far as I was concerned making a planter for outside was bigger and harder to do. But you know what? It wasn’t! It was most fun to do with a good friend, very easy and 100% free. I think of this as the ice breaker for me. A good starting point for future festive urns.
We scoured the back yard and woods for, spruce boughs, dogwood, tall grass stalks, rose of sharon twigs and boxwood. We filled the container with loose wood chip and water.
Next year I will have to make sure I have more urns or planters ready to be made up. It is well worth the effort. Plus add in some glitter, pinecones or bows. Since we are only 5 days from christmas these things are clearly not going to be happening this year.
Thanks E for sharing your creative spirit with me!
