I like "industrial" looking things for decoration inside and out; working on two containers this week and this one I completed today.
Using a coffee can; mixed some water putty to harden around the branches clipped off the tree; adds stability and weight to the container when I take it outside on the porch.
Above: I recently bought this metal toolbox for $5.00~~I may fill this one with mums and pumpkins.
Remember my awesome $3.00 purchase of that big roll of jute? ~~~it makes wonderful, textured bows just perfect for autumn decorating.
Tip: outdoor bows will hold up wonderfully in your containers if you nail (I used heavy~duty staples) to wooden paint sticks.
Added some faux berries, pumpkins and a huge pine cone; some pretty leaves. I might just keep this inside~~
Joining these parties this week~~
