Make your porch, patio, or front yard look more festive and in tune with the holidays by decorating your plant containers. For a perfect plant container, ensure these three elements are present: thriller, spiller, and filler.
Use twigs and dried branches.
If you have low-lying evergreen in your plant container, spruce it up by erecting twigs or dried branches in its midst. The evergreen serves as your spiller, and the dried branches as your thriller. For fillers, this rustic setup now only needs hints of red which can be provided by either small red Christmas balls or ribbons. You can also dress the branch with twinkling lights for a colorful impact at night. Whichever way you go, we’re sure you’ll have a merry plant container spreading cheer from its corner.
Decorate your plant even if it’s only bare branches.
If your seasonal plant has shed almost all of its leaves, then all the better as it can easily serve as the thriller. Wrap holiday garlands, hang Christmas balls made from dry and woven strands of rattan or any natural thread, and use these as the fillers for your container. As for a spiller, you can have the balls also populate the ground of the container.
Prop up Christmas gifts in the containers.
In this décor setup, you have the gifts acting as the thriller. Stack it up. Fill the sides with dried conifers, Christmas balls or evergreen. Lastly, tie a ribbon around it and style it to be your spiller.
These are just 3 ways to decorate your plant containers this holiday season. Be creative and inventive in your own plant containers by having a thriller, filler, and spiller present in your plant container and see how your front yard, porch or patio easily thrills, fills, and spills holiday cheer.
