This is another one of awesome outdoor Christmas decor ideas. Colorful ornaments are placed in a planter. Of course, the planter will be empty as the flowers will be dead due to the cold. They are arranged like flowers and hung. The ornaments should be in different sizes, color, and shapes to fill in the planter completely. You then glue the ornaments to each other to give it a sculpted look. To make this type of decoration, make use of plastic ornaments or materials that are shatter-proof to avoid messy cleanup. With that done, Christmas is on.
