The Front Porch Railing Redo for Pink Saturday

Once again, it's Pink Saturday so be sure and visit with Beverly at howsweetthesound for all this week's participants.

I thought I'd put these little hanging pots on the porch railing for visual interest. Now, mind you, these were at Joanns at 60% off so how could I pass them up? Even if they had the dreadful coconut husks in them, but I spritzed them with a room deodorizer before I started working on them. I also put some potting soil in them just to have something to stick the faux roses and dahlias in. That was hubs suggestion! Worked well and we certainly have an abundance of soil around this place.

Love Bunny wired them to the railing and I then added the soil and stuck in the flowers. Here they are before I added some greenery.

I then added little sprigs of old greenery I have around for various projects and crafts. Worked out quite well I think.

Close up of the left one. Next time I get to WM I'm going to get some spanish moss and put it in front of coconut husks. I don't like that look but am too lazy to go out anymore today.

Close up view of both.

Coming out my front door this is the view I get.
I think it adds just about the right amount of pizzazz to the front, don't you?
