To create this look, use pine boughs as a base, and then add seasonal produce to the mix. For even more holiday flair, try weaving outdoor ribbon throughout your arrangements.
Cold winter days are an asset for this display because they allow produce to stay fresh longer. You can replace the fruits and vegetables as needed, or set up the display right before a holiday gathering.
For this festive front entry, plant upright selections in the back of the box (small conifers that resemble Christmas trees), followed by mounding plants for fullness (pansies and sprigs of nandina berries) and trailing selections (ivy) around the edges to cascade over the sides.
Here, we used large magnolia leaves as the focal point and mixed in cotoneaster and dried hydrangea blooms.
Tip: Pansies come in a wide variety of sizes and colors. Choose the type you most enjoy to add a personal touch to your window boxes.
Need a low-maintenance design? Try filling the planters with clippings from your yard, such as glossy magnolia leaves. Because
they require so little care, they are perfect for hard-to-reach windows.
