I bought a bunch of mini mums to plant for fall but they hung out on the buffet in the kitchen for too long and never got planted.
Now that I have an empty window box I can't help but think about what I'm going to do for the upcoming season. If you live in a cold climate your winter display can last through the winter.
I found some great window boxes to inspire us....
I love the glass ornaments and dogwood branches used in this display.
Pinecones are one of my favorite things to decorate with for the holidays.
The icicles hanging from this box are a fun idea. You can use beaded ornaments or garland for this look.
I love this shed all decked out for the holidays. Last year I added some greens and a wreath to the playhouse just for fun.
When putting together your winter display it's best to start when the soil is still workable and not frozen. I like to use a few different varieties of evergreen branches to start with. Snip a few inches off of the bottom of the branches to keep fresh and push deep into the dirt so the wind won't take them away. Once your window box is finished, water it. The water will freeze, holding everything in place throughout the winter. If it warms up a bit, keep it watered until the temperature drops below freezing.
Will you be dressing up your windows this winter?
