Spring is the time to start growing vegetables and flowers in patio containers. Many people like to place interesting decorations in their flowerpots to add visual interest. Some types of ornaments can actually make excellent container accents, so they can be enjoyed not only at Christmas, but year-round as well.
Ceramic birdhouses, feathers, and artificial birds make excellent container decorations. You can either hang these ornaments from small shepherd’s hooks or tuck them into the foliage of a very large plant. Some can also be placed on a stick and then placed in the dirt at the edge of a container.
Large tropical plants can serve as a makeshift Christmas tree. Why not hang miniature ornaments from the branches of this greenery. If you’re placing them on a patio, you could even add a few miniature Christmas lights so that the plants can provide accent lighting at night.
