Window Box Ideas For Thanksgiving
One of the nice advantages to our window boxes is that they can be left out all year round without worrying about cracking, splitting, splintering, warping, bowing, or breaking. This saves you from having to haul and store them away during the fall and winter and opens up the possibilities to plant and decorate them during the most festive parts of the year an show them off to family and friends during these late autumn and winter months. Thanksgiving emotes feelings of autumn, falling leaves in rustic colors, and roasted chestnuts. It reminds you of warmth and comfort. You
can use these emotions to spruce up your winter window boxes.
* Autumn leaves: Fill your window boxes with autumn leaves for a beautiful, autumnal display. When autumn comes around, you find the trees turning rich golden colors that almost reflect sunset colors. You can use different colored leaves, branches, and twigs in your window box. In this simple way, you bring some color to your home and celebrate the season.
* Gourds and pumpkins: Use gourds and small pumpkins to create a harvest-themed window box. These winter squashes are a fun and festive way to decorate for Thanksgiving and the fall season.
* Corn stalks: Incorporate dried corn stalks into your window boxes for a rustic, harvest-themed display. Pair the golden stalks with red berries, straw, and pine cones for a uniquely festive way to decorate for Thanksgiving and the fall season.
* Scarecrows and hay: Place decorative Thanksgiving themed decorations like scarecrows and hay in your window box to give a farm-style look.
