As you can see, from the first picture, these baskets were looking so sad! After a trip to hobby lobby, they are looking in much better shape!
Items needed for Winter Window Box:
Greenery (either from nature, or fake. I used a combo of both)
Filler (pine cones, berries, beads, branches, etc. I used pussy willows, beads and stems)
I started by making sure my baskets till had plenty of soil in them. I then ran ribbon (I selected green) through the baskets. I did this just to create a layer of interest. It blends in rather well, but the small stripe of satin makes it look a little fancy.
I them add in the basket a layer of pine boughs that we got from the woods behind our house. On top of that, I placed a big stem of fake greenery that I got at hobby lobby. I then just wove in some branches and bead picks that I had leftover in my craft closet.
I am pleased how it turned out, and it will last until spring! Then I can actually plant real plants back in the boxes.
