Every year I have a roster of lovely clients for whom I make outdoor Christmas Planters. If you are looking to put together your own planter this winter I hope that this one can give you some inspiration! Follow the simple instructions below to make your own outdoor Christmas planters.
Every year it shocks me how quickly this season rolls around and then subsequently how quickly it passes by. This year I am getting my act together in good time to actually share everything here that I want to share with you in preparation for this holiday season! I’m not a big fan of gift guides but I am a big fan of Holiday decor, seasonal recipes, and festive DIY projects. So if you are with me there I hope you tune in a few times over the next couple of weeks!
So today I am starting us off with a holiday planter! This is usually the first thing I will start to do at this time of year. Because it is outside the evergreen boughs will not dry out before Christmas arrives (in fact, this will last you well beyond!) and by this point in the year the summer and fall planters are getting mighty tired looking. It’s time for the switch over!
As always, you can alter this formula to suit your style! If you want something more traditionally Christmas then you could use glitter sticks instead of the birch poles and ornaments instead of the pinecones. Ensure that you have plenty of evergreen boughs and everything will look beautiful in the end! Enjoy decorating and getting in the Holiday Spirit!
Using evergreen boughs is an affordable and beautiful way to decorate your home for the holidays. If using evergreen boughs inside you will need to mist them daily so they don’t dry out. Evergreen boughs can be found on most properties and you can use them to make wreaths, garland, swags, or fill a vase for an impactful but minimal feel. As a bonus, they make your house smell great! Chances are you or a friend have some on your property that you can cut or they are for sale at super affordable prices at almost all hardware stores, grocery stores, and nurseries at this time of year.
