Don’t put all outdoor window boxes or larger containers into winter storage just yet. They make
excellent containers for holiday or winter decorations. Using a window box or large stone urn
or other container, fill it with some soaked oasis floral foam. It can be purchased at most
florist shops or garden centers. Fill with an arrangement of evergreen branches such as pine,
fir, cedar, spruce, magnolia, and holly. Add stems of plants that bear winter berries like
pepper berries and cotoneaster. Using small gauge wire or florist wire, wire pinecones onto the
branches and add other natural ornaments such as cranberry garlands.
