Day 6: Urn Planter Door Stoop Decoration

WELCOME TO DAY 6 OF MY 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS DECORATING, CRAFT AND GIFT IDEA CHALLENGE.

Today’s FABULOUS idea comes from The Surly Mermaid.  She is a good friend of mine and does monthly “snippet” blog posts here at A Wandaful Thing.  She has many other talents besides her quirky , off the cuff writing style and she is sharing one with us today.

Required:

Tools- pruning shears,

small wire cutters (optional

glue gun (optional)

 

1 – Bundle of small pine boughs (I bought mine at Home Depot as I live in the city and don’t have access to a tree that needed trimming :))

2 – Large pot with dirt- I used an outside garden pot that I  grew tomatoes in this  past summer.

3 – Decorative bits and bobs on sticks- I bought some of these at Home Depot as well for $4.99 each, they included pine cones and wooden gold orbs.

4 – Long twigs from a colorful bush  or large sparkly plastic red ones from the Dollar  or craft store.

5 – I made a bow with ribbon I had (doesn’t it just Roar Christmas…lol) and wired it to a trimmed pine bough with florist wire – a twist tie would work just as well or y0u could use a hot glue gun to secure it in place.

Assemble by inserting everything into the dirt in the pot and  voila!!IMG_6986
