Easy DIY Holiday Planter for Free


I don't know why I have made one of these before. Why isn't everyone making them for that matter. I'm sure most have a nice pot left from the summer season and some kind of evergreens in their yards. Even artificial greens look nice and you can dress it up with lights or glitter. Whatever you fancy for a beautiful holiday planter that's easy to make and so affordable. Anyway, here's my simple tutorial.

I had a long birch branch that I found on a hike, so I cut it in two and stuck them as far down in the soil as I could. Next I simply inserted springs of greens around the top of the urn. If you don’t have a pot with soil in it you can use floral foam, or styrofoam, to hold the branches. For this first layer make sure the branches are coming out to the sides, and somewhat flat.

Next insert varying greens inside of the first layer. Add some more soil if needed. Then add more branches and working toward the middle. Continue added greens, turning the pot to see it from all sides to see if there are any obvious holes and insert more as needed. It super quick and easy and should last for several weeks.
