Christmas Planter Ideas

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Make your entryway more festive this winter with Christmas porch decorations that are as clever as they are creative. These planter ideas are simple to put together—and practically guaranteed to raise a smile whenever someone comes to call.

Pair of resin planters stacked on a porch to use as a Christmas decoration.

Connect a pair of planters with painted wood trim and add birch logs and ornaments to decorate your front porch, deck or patio. After the holidays, it converts to a raised planter. Or decorate a single container with a colorful wooden base.

Rectangle planter with Christmas decorations, evergreen boughs and red ribbon.

This easy-to-build DIY planter is big enough to hold a garden display, which is why it makes a good home for plants that come and go with the seasons. The dwarf Alberta spruce is a mainstay each season and looks festive in winter when it’s decorated with red ornaments and joined by boughs of spruce and cedar.


Cone-shape boxwood decorated with Christmas ornaments.

Needled evergreens pretty much have a lock on the Christmas tree scene, but dwarf boxwood make such a lovely exception. Plant one or two in lightweight resin pots by the front door, then wrap a festive ribbon around the pots and hang bright ornaments on the foliage. Where winters are cold, you can grow boxwood as indoor plants. Line pots with pebbles so soil does not become waterlogged, and give plants a spot with bright, indirect light.

Square container with evergreen boughs, pine cones and berries.

Give your front entryway a yuletide boost with square pots overflowing with ingredients of the season. This cornucopia of Christmas includes cedar, pine and spruce boughs augmented with twigs, pinecones, dried berries and aromatic sage leaves.

Red, blue and green pots decorated with evergreen boughs, red-twig dogwood and dried hydrangea blooms.

Celebrate winter (as well as the holidays) with outdoor arrangements that will look good for months. Brightly painted pails hold a mix of red-twig dogwood stems, dried hydrangea blooms and assorted evergreen boughs.

Red containers with Christmas ornaments and DIY Christmas tree art.

Spruce up your outdoor decor for the holidays with unique Christmas tree art. Simply thread gutter guard over a rod to make a curvy, abstract statement on a front porch or entryway. Set them in brightly painted pots and layer the base with greens and shatterproof Christmas ornaments.

Round container with evergreen boughs, berries, pine cones, red-twig dogwood and miniature snowman.

Filled with live plants during the growing season, this concrete urn turns into winter artwork when the weather turns. It’s filled with spruce, pine and cedar boughs and punctuated with stems of red-twig dogwood, holly berries and pinecones. A small snowman adds a touch of whimsy.

Make your outdoor space a winter wonderland with cheerful holiday planters. --Lowe’s Creative Ideas

Potted winter arrangements point the way to winter fun and holiday cheer.
