I decided that I was not going to spend more than $5 on my winter pots this year. All of the greens are from our yard and neighbors. The red twig sticks are such a great accompaniment to the displays. My grand total is $3.23! for the bows on the window boxes. I made them up as the temperature was dropping so I added water and within a few hours they had frozen.
The best part about them freezing is I don't go back to adjust and rearrange the sprigs, because once they're in, they are in. Yes you can change them, but that involves a lot more work. So I say que sera, sera
