Hi friends!  Just wanted to show you a quick and easy way to put together a Christmas “Potted Plant” for your  front porch (or anywhere else )!  I love plants, but usually to death!  I was pretty lucky this  year with succulents though…they need little water and love the sun!  My front porch gets direct afternoon sun so I feel like I’m saving the lives of many plants by going faux for this particular area.

I usually like to get clippings from Christmas trees for my base, but this year I went even simpler and used an old wreath I had.  I spread out the branches, then laid it down.  I like to start with some height in the middle, such as these red berry stems, and work my way out.   I used magnolia stems and various others that all came from Michael’s.  By the way, they were all 50% off with an extra 25%!  I also added in a few pine cones here and there, as well as, my “Tis The Season” sign.   I love it and it took no more than 30 minutes!  Plus, I don’t have to worry about it dying!  Merry Christmas!!
