Christmas is OVER. Kids are back to school and everyone is back to work. Extend the life of your Christmas urn by removing all the ornaments and shiny bows etc. Replace them with natural elements like pinecones, birch bark, fruit (real for the animals or faux ones) and burlap or raffia. This look will continue on all through the winter. If you are having trouble removing ornaments or items that are frozen in the soil, add a kettle of boiling water to the soil to loosen it up and you can easily insert the new items.
