Fill a wheelbarrow or wooden garden wagon with greenery, pinecones, and pots of fruit for a festive display in your yard or on your porch. Lay long branches of evergreens in the wheelbarrow so they spill over the front edge and extend out from the back. If possible, use several kinds of greenery for a variety of textures and shades of green. Here the combination is western cedar, Douglas fir, red huckleberry, white pine, and variegated privet. Anchor the branches with terra-cotta pots nestled into the greenery, and fill the pots with apples or other fruits. Add large sugar pinecones, and bundles of sticks or birch twigs.
