How to choose faux flowers for a winter window box
When choosing plants for your winter window box, it’s important to choose plants that are well-suited for the cold weather. Even if you are choosing faux flowers, you want them to look realistic. You don’t want to have flowers that typically only survive in the summer in your winter window box. This will not only look strange but make it obvious that you have faux flowers.
The purpose of faux flowers in a window box is making it look realistic without the maintenance right?
Best plants and flowers for winter window planters
Some of the best plants for a winter window box include pansies, violas, ferns and evergreen ivy. These plants are all hardy and can handle cold temperatures, as well as some snow and frost. In addition, these plants also provide a splash of colour to your window box, which is perfect for the winter months.
Like I said earlier, even though we are using faux flowers, you still want to use plants that will survive the winter months to make it look more realistic.
There are a few different types of plants that can be planted in planter boxes during the winter. One type of plant is evergreens. Evergreens are a great option for planter boxes in the winter because they stay green all year round and add a bit of color to your outdoor space. Another type of plant that can be planted in planter boxes in the winter is pansies. Pansies are cold-hardy and can handle colder temperatures, so they’re a great option for planter boxes in the winter months.
Where do you get faux flowers and plants for winter flower boxes?
You can get faux flowers and plants at any craft store and even big box stores like Walmart and Target.
I personally love shopping at the Dollar Tree for faux flowers. That being said the Dollar Tree doesn’t have a large stock of faux flowers, but what they do have normally is in season, decent quality and affordable. If you are looking for a larger variety to choose from, check out craft stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby. If you know what you are looking for you can find the most selection online!
Faux winter plants and flowers from Walmart
For these winter boxes I picked up the faux flowers at Walmart. Yep, Walmart… Let me show you.
They were $3-$6 per stem which is very decently priced. The quality was pretty good as well. I’ll be honest it isn’t as good as what I got for my fall window boxes at the Dollar Tree or Hobby Lobby, but I figured I would give them a try.
- Amaryllis mix bush
- Plaid poinsettia bouquet- couldn’t find online
- Glittery berry bush – couldn’t find exact product but here are similar red ones
I also kept the fern from my previous fall arrangement. Ferns are a great fall/winter base plant that work interchangeably with so many other flowers.
