Materials Needed

2) 12" grapevine spheres
2 to 4 strands of waterproof LED "fairy lights"
2 urns or planters
2 live or artificial evergreen wreaths (that fit over urn opening)
live or artificial evergreen sprigs/sprays
pinecones
florist's wire (optional)
hot glue gun and glue sticks (optional)

Wrap Lights       

Wrap one or two waterproof LED fairy lights around each large grapevine sphere (Image 1). Position battery pack so it can rest inside urn, out of site, but accessible to turn on and off. Wrap end of light wire around grapevine brand to secure (Image 2). Tip: Traditional outdoor Christmas lights can also be used, if an outlet is accessible.

Assemble Greenery and Sphere

Set a wreath, top-side-up, on top of each urn or planter pot. Tuck fresh or faux greenery sprigs, pinecones or berry stems into wreath (Images 1 and 2). Florist's wire or hot glue can be used to secure sprigs, if necessary. Set grapevine sphere on top of wreath, tucking battery packs inside of urn. Turn on lights and enjoy the beautiful display that took only minutes to create (Image 3).
