If you missed her visit, here's one fun and easy idea to spruce things up around your place this holiday season:

Make this gorgeous Christmas planter in no time!


You will need:

• Martha Stewart LivingTM Frosted Traditions or Snowberry ornament wreath • Martha Stewart Living Frosted Traditions or Snowberry ornaments 101-pack • 22-in cast stone urn in granite or limestone finish • Live greenery (spruce, noble fir, white pine, cedar, eucalyptus, etc.) • Plastic drop cloth • Bubble wrap • Sand • Scissors • Pruning shears


Fill the urn two-thirds of the way to the top with bubble wrap.


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.


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


Place the Frosted Traditions or Snowberry ornament wreath on top of the greenery.


Fill in the wreath opening with loose ornament balls or 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.
