After hurricane Sandy and some really cold nights....
we need to freshen up around here.
These pots are old...only 7 years or so. I want them to still look old but brighter so they stand out more against our tan color house.
So here's what I did:
Then I cleaned them up.
I wanted more "chipped paint" spots so I painted them with black paint.
Then I filled the pots with twigs and pine cones
starting with a vine wreath around the rim.
The twinkle sticks are battery operated and purchased from JoAnn's.
I tied raffia around the wreath and dangled star charms from the bow.
This arrangement should last all winter through.
Looks cute at night.
With natural and artificial twigs I was able to pull off a bright, rustic
& effortless look for my porch.
