Front Door Christmas Decor

Last year I purchased this flocked garland from Pier 1 and I added some flocked picks and pine picks to a wreath I had made a couple of years ago. I did not add any color, keeping it neutral. It was boring, so as my mother suggested, this year I added color. I found some red berry picks and red velvet ribbon. I had planned to drape two strands of the red ribbon on the garland but it was too wide, so I just tied a strand on each side. I also had two little black planters with mini Christmas trees beside the door last year but I decided the planters were too small. I thought about bringing out my blue and white fish bowl planters and putting mini Christmas trees in them with red bows but since I have the little juniper trees right by the door, I think the garland and wreath will do.

Spring Floral

It feels like spring around here. We are still working on the half bathroom and the master bathroom and laundry room will have a few minor updates. The goal is to be done with those projects by April. The next big project is the front yard landscaping. I am planning to paint the front door and replace the door handle (finally). I have a bin in my storage room labeled “FLORAL” and I decided to use the garland and stems that were inside bin. I purchased a grapevine wreath for about $7 from Joann Fabrics and starting searching Pinterest for ideas. I came across this hydrangea wreath and thought I could use the eucalyptus garland I found inside the floral bin in place of their clematis bushels. I do prefer the look of the wreath with the clematis bushels but the eucalyptus will do. I hot-glued everything onto the wreath. I have enough eucalyptus, hydrangeas, and roses to finish the other side but I am warming up to the asymmetrical look. The next wreath was …

The House Is Too Tall For Lights: Exterior Christmas Decor

I would really like some icicle lights but the house is way too tall for lights. I purchased a spotlight to brighten up the front porch and I have solar-powered spotlights to brighten up the rest of the house. Painting the front door and frame is also on the to-do list. I am not completely happy with the wreath. I started with a grapevine wreath that I made with my parents a long time ago. I added a strand of glittery garland to the grapevine a couple of years ago. This year once I picked out the garland for the door, I decided to use this wreath and add in some pine picks, snowy pinecone picks, and cedar stems. I think it needs more snowy stuff. My mom suggested some shiny ornaments. I may try that next year. We finally replaced the flag pole and the flag. The landscaping is still on the to-do list. SHOP THIS POST
