A few weeks ago I did a post about decorating for fall. This is the wreath that I put on my front door. I made it several years ago…very easy with a grape vine wreath and a length of fall garland. I also added the silk pheasant feathers. I told you that I would let you know if I added anything else. I did!
I put one of these on each side of the door. A few years ago I was looking for some planters for boxwood. Every time I would find one that I liked, I thought that it was too expensive. Then, while wandering down the aisles of the big box Lowes with my GPS, I spied some copper waste baskets. I drilled holes in the bottom and filled them with soil and box wood and placed them around my patio area. That was at the last house. Now, I have six of these copper planters. So, I decided to put one white pumpkin (rubber from Michael’s) and one length of silk fall leaves in each of two planter/waste baskets. It took maybe two seconds.
In the winter I will probably put an evergreen in each one and then who knows what spring and summer may bring. Remember, a waste basket does not have to be a waste basket. It can be a planter. Just remember to drill drainage holes if you are going to add a plant. Create and be happy! And…Happy Birthday to my friend, Becky!
