While many people may have urns in their gardens, not all bother to decorate them based upon the season. This in my opinion is an awful shame, considering what a great addition they can make, especially when the weather turns grim, and most things in the space have died, or are in hibernation.
Now, I should point out that these arrangements should not be left out to succumb to the elements if it is raining, or snowing. But, while we are still approaching such weather they can be left out. They look stupendous at an entryway, or front door, which also makes them easy to grab should the weather take a nasty turn before you expect it to do so. But, if this is what you have in mind, it is probably prudent to use plastic urns, as they will be simpler to move about.
To get started, fill the inside of the urn with florist’s plastic foam. Conceal that with a decorative moss, and secure. Use any weather proof, or weather resistant fabric for trim along the edge, and then organize flowers, vegetables, pinecones, dried berries, or any other seasonal item that tickles your fancy.
Hopefully, you will be so pleased with your handiwork that you will look forward to your next creation when the seasons once again change. It can be an excellent way to bring some life into the space inexpensively.
