Today I'm going to share pictures of my front porch with you.
This is the first year that I have really decorated it for Christmas, and I have to admit I love the warm welcoming it all brings.
Here is the wreath I made for our front door.
I started off with a plain, faux green wreath. Then at first I added some faux branches with tiny pinecone into the wreath. I also added a couple pinecones and a crazy plaid rag bow.
I hung it up and then decided I didn't care for it too much.
Then I got the idea from Beth's article on FOLK magazine's website (HERE). Beth shares her idea to add real greenery to a faux wreath.
So I cut off some branched off of my pine tree out back and added them to my wreath.
I came up with the idea to use an old leather belt to hang it from.
I also added some of my real pine branches to a small faux Christmas tree we put out on our porch.
I love the wildness of it.
I then brought out my Vintage Ski's (from HERE), a little red stool, a metal lantern and a pile of logs.
I also scattered some faux snow around... However we did get some real snow!
It sure looks a lot like Christmas around here.
So I know these last couple of days have been devastating to everyone. My heart and prayers go out to all of those effected in this tragedy.
It's also been a good reminder to hold your loved ones close and dear and enjoy every minute you get to share with them.
Thanks for stopping by,
