Not very interesting, is it? This is the front of my shop. Like I said before, the beauty is on the other side of the door. But notice the pot in the corner. That is where we are starting.
Put a smaller container inside the urn. It should be watertight Depending upon what will be added to the urn, use a container filled with water or use floral foam that has been thoroughly saturated with water.
Want to add something that really makes the pot, or in this case, more accurately, the urn, pop? Place an undecorated wreath around the opening. In this case, the wreath I used is made of white pine boughs. I sprayed it lightly with white paint and put in on top of the urn. Then I added lights. Notice something different about them? I used icicle lights. I draped the string around the opening–on top of the wreath– and let the “icicles” drop off the side.
I twisted the ends of the icicle lights onto smaller snowflakes. This adds interest and helps weight the light strands so that they don’t blow around as much in the wind. I attached the strands to the flakes with short pieces of red cord tied into small bows.
The beauty of the icicle lights really shine as the light fades. I also added 3 sparkling sprays of lime green and 5 loops of a shiny red mesh ribbon for more daytime interest. What do you think?
