Sprucing Up the Front Porch With Holiday Greens

A quick and easy way to spruce up those tired summer pots with a little Holiday love.
I took advantage of the beautiful warm December Day we had yesterday to spend time outside sprucing up the front porch with some Holiday greenery.
Do you have a big old pot sitting around on your front porch looking a little tired like this one?

This year…October and November was an extremely busy and stressful time for me. And, even though I winterized and cleaned up most of the flowers in the flower beds. The big pots on the front porch were ignored.  
A little Holiday Love was needed.
I used my Fiskars Pruning Shears* and went around the yard and cutting sprigs of pine branches from the large pine trees in my yard. 
(lucky for me I have several)

FYI...I have a friend who buys an extra Christmas tree each year to chop up the branches to use for greenery all around her house.
After finishing cleaning out the pot…

I stuck the ends of the branches into the dirt filling up the pot making it look like a little tree. I added a few pinecones for fun.
I tied a simple bow around the neck of a solar lamp and added that to the pot.
So simple and easy. 
But, what a difference it makes.
A matching pot for the other side of the stairs as well.
And of course, the sled needed a holiday swag to match the wreath on the front door.

I found this sled last year at a flea market for only $15. (skates included)
I’m keeping it fairly simple again this year.
