You will need:


  1. Fill the urn two-thirds of the way to the top with bubble wrap.
  2. Cut the plastic drop cloth into a circle a few inches wider than the urn. Cover bubble wrap with plastic drop cloth and tuck edges beneath the lip of the urn to create a “bucket” for the sand. Add sand.
  3. Place the greenery into sand and arrange decoratively, draping longer branches over the edge of the planter.
  4. Place the Frosted Traditions Ornament Wreath on top of the greenery.
  5. Fill in the wreath opening with loose or glued ornament balls. Be sure to hide the ornament caps from view.
  6. Keep filling in the center of the wreath for a full, gorgeous display.
