Skill Level: Easy

Time: 15 minutes


Watch Martha complete this project.


  • 22-inch cast stone urn in granite or limestone finish

  • Bubble wrap

  • Scissors

  • Plastic drop cloth

  • Sand

  • Live greenery (spruce, noble fir, white pine, cedar, eucalyptus, etc.)

  • Pruning shears

  • Glue (if using urn outside)


  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.

  3. Add sand.

  4. Place the greenery into sand and arrange decoratively, draping longer branches over the edge of the urn.

  5. Place the Frosted Traditions or Snowberry Ornament Wreath on top of the greenery.

  6. Fill in the wreath opening with loose ornament balls (glue them to each other if using outside). Be sure to hide the ornament caps from view. Keep filling in the center of the wreath for a full, gorgeous display.
