Creating Fall Planters

I am planning to have a workshop for people to create an outside urn for the Fall that can be converted to a Winter urn, by only changing a few elements.  Most people are reluctant to put the time and effort into a fall urn and instead opt for a couple of pots of mums on the front steps.
But we all want the impact of an eye catching fall display that will grace our doors for Thanksgiving and Halloween.  So, I will show people how to create a basic shape with greenery that will give the “fill” factor that speaks to the abundance we like in urns and then to change a few key elements to change the impact from the  Fall to Winter season. 
The workshop will be held on Oct. 9 at 1:30 pm.  Bring a liner (a plastic pot) that fits in your outside urn, so you can transport it back and forth to the workshop.
