Our Winter Urn
Winter urns are hugely popular in my neighbourhood. House after house, entrances are flanked by winter urns filled with winter greens, dogwood branches, birch logs and ornaments to bring some Holiday cheer to the front entrance. It's always exciting to see the various designs.
We do a winter urn every year. It’s becoming very popular for people to buy pre-made winter urns, but, with my moms help, I’ve been making ours for years now. I enjoy the process; collecting inspiration, shopping for greens and creating it. My mom was away this year when I did ours, so this years winter urn is completely chez moi…
Yup, I’m a big girl now.
I added clear mini lights last week, and I think it’s add a little something special for the evening, here’s a day & night look…

Pretty, right? I think so. Do you showcase a winter urn out front during the winter months? Feel free to pop over to my pin-board for more floral inspiration.
Winter urns – such an easy way to keep your front landscape looking current even the colder months. The beauty lies in it’s ability to last throughout the winter season - and since the cold air acts as refrigeration, the foliage stays fresh looking until March. Perfect!
I'm too intimidated to create my own winter urn - I just bought a couple of small pre-lit trees to put on our front porch. I do add ornaments to them myself, though ;-)
