5 Easy Steps To Creating This Winter Planter



Here is a clever idea we saw on how to fill your winter garden planters and make them look decorative!  It's really only 5 easy steps.

Here they are:

 
STEP 1:  Leave 3/4 of the dirt in the outdoor garden pot and fill the top 1/4" with wet floral foam.  Decide what to use to create a "thrill" in the planter.  In this case birch poles were used.

Step 2: Now fill around the outside of the garden planter.  In this pot Western BC cedar was inserted in the floral foam.  The plan is to have the greens looking like they are spilling over the side of the planter.

Step 3:  Add another evergreen with a slightly different color and texture for contrast. Here it's Blue Tip Juniper.  Red Dogwood branches have also been added for a shot of color in this planter.  Keep changing it up.  Fraser Fir is added as fill and height, making this pottery display look full & 3 dimensional.

Step 4:  Now a few Magnolia leaves and Euonymus add more depth.  As an eye catcher add a large pine cone to the potted display.

Step 5:  Depending on how you feel about sparkle this would be the time to add it to this winter planter.  Large silver sparkly wicker balls give a festive feel.  Putting different combinations together is easy to do.  You can always add berries, holly, curly willow branches, birch logs and all kinds of holiday ornaments.  Have fun and be creative.
