December's issue of Cottage Living shows a how-to for a cute wintertime window box. We generally have ferns in our boxes, but the onset of winter leaves us grasping for something else. The how-to, which requires only very simple craft supplies, can be found here... We don't love that this calls for the use of styrofoam balls. Maybe there are other solutions - like paper mache? Or the reuse of styrofoam balls if, for some reason, you have any that would otherwise be thrown away.
The outcome is playful and warm. We like the soft glow of the lights coming from within the box. Related Links: • Good Questions: Cheap Holiday Decoration Stores? • Holiday Decorating with Vessel's Candela • Top 15 Holiday Party Tips
