Faux Winter Window Box DIY

Faux Winter Window Box DIY - Hello, hello! I’m so happy to be back on the blog today! I missed chatting with everyone, and feel like we have so much to catch up on. How was your Thanksgiving? We had a surprise visitor, my father-in-law, so we got to set an extra place at the table this year. We spent the day offline, spending quality time with family & friends, eating good food, playing games, and watching holiday movies. It was really nice. The rest of the weekend, Emmett & I were busy packing all of your Tuesday Made orders! Thank you again for shopping small and supporting our little store. I truly can’t tell you how much that means- I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. We’re working hard to get all of your orders out within the next few days (thanks for your patience!)– we’re certainly feeling the holiday hustle & bustle, which has been fun! Anyway- today I have another seasonal post to share with you. My plan was to fill up my window planters over the weekend and I went to three local nurseries, greenhouses, and even Lowe’s… only to find there are zero potted plants left. I’m guessing I’m a month too late. The only thing I stumbled upon was cut holiday greenery- garland, wreaths, and tons of Christmas trees. It seems I missed my window to plant live boxwoods, juniper, and pine- like I normally do this time of year. I always try to finish my winter window boxes in late October and I was just too busy this year. Since I couldn’t find live plants, I figured I’d resort to faux… that way the boxes aren’t empty all winter long until April. If you’re interested to see how I assembled my winter window planters this year, click through! I’m linking everything and am sharing the faux greenery I used, which is pretty convincing and maintenance free. They turned out really festive. I’m glad I found an alternative and was able to make it work this year!  Continue Reading
