How can I decorate my house without hanging flower baskets?


Ever, year I buy beautiful flowering hanging baskets in May and by the end of July they are no longer full, no longer beautiful and barely alive, regardless of how often we water them.

I am looking for an alternative to a hanging basket for the front of my Garage and on my front stoop.

I also have a plant hook on my front porch.

I would rather spend $100-$150 on an arts/craft project that I can re-use the following year, than the same amount on plants that die before the summer ends.

But I would like to avoid silk or artificial flowers.

Love and usually use pinks, purples with occasional accents of a yellow or an orange.

Suggestions, instructions, pictures, anything.

Thanks!! Anna Lydia
