Hi there! I'm so glad you stopped by.
I'm finally done! All my Christmas decorations are up. Now, I can enjoy the rest of the Christmas season. Today I want to share my front porch.
Let me start by saying, my front porch was the last thing I had to decorate. Frankly I was tired and was running out of decorations to use. So, I dug around and came up with this.
I started with these 2 little pine trees that I've had forever. I wanted to do it a little different this year. So, I decided on silver, burlap and pinecones.
I started by stringing white lights around each of them. I used a 50 count.
I wrapped some burlap ribbon around them for added depth.
Next I added some silver bulbs that I got at Marshalls. They were on a a swag. There were about 50 bulbs on there and I got it for $15.00. I cut all the bulbs off the swag, saving enough of the wire from each bulb, to wrap around the pine branch.
I added some silver bells I had by looping a piece of twine through each one and tying a little bow on the branch. How easy is that!
Next, I added an old chair I have. I simply grabbed an old silver kettle I have and filled it with pinecones, adding a few of the silver bulbs. I tied this fabulous burlap ribbon around the kettle, set a little bird I also found at Marshalls, next to the kettle and waa laa!
Around the front door I added 2 pine swags. Again, adding some of the silver bulbs and burlap ribbon.
To my simple twig wreath I added some pine, a ribbon and a silver bulb.
To hide the black metal plate at the bottom of the trees, I took an old burlap bag we had, cut it in to 2 pieces, wrapped it around the bottom and tied it with some twine.
That's it. Simple and very inexpensive. I had everything on hand except the bulbs and the little bird on the chair. I LOVE simple and inexpensive.
So, that's it. My Christmas front porch. I hope you like it and it inspires you to dig around your house and garage and find a new use for your old things.
Thank you so much for stopping by. It means the world to me.
