This photo and awesome but very frugal decorating trick to liven up your outdoor cast-iron planters comes from my sister-in-law Lillian. As you can tell from this planter Lillian has exquisite taste and loves to decorate. Her home really is a showcase from the moment you walk in the front door until you walk out the back, most of the year. Then the Grand Kids come.
In the summer time, this cast-iron planter hosted many beautiful annual flowering plants. Then in the fall, most of this these planters are empty and either have dirt in them or those green sponge plant holders from flower shops. Here Lillian’s frugal genius is to use cuttings from her own backyard and curl wires around the bottom of them ,to stick into that green sponge, to hold them up.
Other people, I have seen, stick the branches straight into the dirt, to make these beautiful evergreen bouquets. You can add anything to these bouquets, colorful decorations, flowers, and ribbons to make them your own Christmas creation. These bouquets will greet your family and guests with an evergreen scent of a homey Christmas time to come.
