Happy New Year everyone!
I received so many requests about my Holiday urns that I decided to share the very simple method by which to create them!
Last year I used fresh greenery but it was very expensive with three urns! Keeping them all Winter was not an option. They dry out quickly and turn brown! I needed an inexpensive way to dress the urns for the Holidays but I was at a loss. I almost just left them bare! The horror! LOL!
This project took about 20 minutes total!
These are not the baskets I used. I have no before photos! You can use any type you want.
I merely took two metal hanging baskets from Home Depot (I found mine on clearance for $6 each). Take out the coir and remove the chains. Then turn them end to end and use wire to bind them together with floral wire. My planters were gold so I used gold wire. I used the holes left from where the chains were. I didn't have to wire it all the way around...four equally spaced tethers is sufficient.
I placed the newly created spheres on top of a fresh wreath that I bought at the grocery store and secured the sphere into the soil in the pot with landscaping pins.
Simply lay the wreath on the urn!
I then wrapped battery operated lights around the spheres...
The total cost for all three urns was less than $100! I am leaving them in the urns without the lights for the remainder of the Winter!
This idea can be used for vine topiaries all year long! It can also be used indoors with a light bulb or in a gazebo with bulbs...use your imagination!
Can you think of any other way to use these?
