Rustic Watering Cans Windowboxes
Using watering cans collected over the years, greens cut from our trees and shrubs and some little Dollar Store snowflakes, I put together our rustic winter windowboxes in about an hour. Because I am such an avid gardener, these winter displays suit me well and can stay up until spring (or until I get bored, whichever comes first!). Even though I tried out red-checked ribbon, I settled on silver. Which do you prefer?
All through the year, my husband and I pick up interesting items at estate and yard sales. This little stone birdhouse cost just $4 and I couldn’t leave it behind. So glad I didn’t as it is the perfect addition to this rustic windowbox!
A trio of old galvanized cans dulled to a soft silver fill one of our front windowboxes. Greens gathered from around our property provide the backdrop. Little Dollar Store snowflakes hot glued on sticks add a holiday accent.
A woven heart wreath picked up at a yard sale is transformed with two little carved snowmen from a craft show. On the front porch, their happy little faces will welcome our guests this season.
I placed a large container on either side of the driveway this past summer. They bloomed beautifully with mandevilla until the cold weather started. Then, it was pumpkins and hay and bittersweet for fall. Now, they are planted with tulips, narcissus and miniature daffodils and topped off with greens collected on our property. Red twig dogwood and holly provide color as white pine drapes over the urn edges. Hopefully, the holly will slow down any squirrels looking for a snack! If not, perhaps this metal owl will give them pause!
