Christmas planters this year were made with fresh materials found in the woods and from my garden all for practically free ! Christmas planters are now for sale at various local grocery stores and I was amazed at the price they are asking - upwards of $50-60 for one small planter.
Cedar, pine boughs and dogwood was collected from the woods and variegated euonymus cuttings came from my garden. I added a red bows that I saved from last year's planters along with some dollar store poinsettias, red balls and gold plant pokes. The black urn is one that someone put out for garbage earlier in the year.
