Small Start to My Outdoor Christmas Decorating

November 30, 2009

I feel like I’m already behind, because everywhere I look (our neighborhood) and everywhere I read (facebook and my favorite design blogs and twitter) everyone has all their Christmas decorations up. I don’t even have my Thanksgiving stuff put away yet. I did however get a few things done outside these last few days.

The first is my swag on the front door. I just bought a plain swag and dressed it with ornaments, and berries and some various winter foliage. You can save money if you put it together yourself and I think the end result is always better then buying one already done from a store.

The next one is a close up of one of my window boxes. Again, I basically threw a little of this and a lot of that into the containers. There is winter foliage, eucalyptus, berries, ornaments and some yard art that I bought from the Enchanted Garden.

The last photo is both of my window boxes.

Hopefully I can finish up with the other projects in the next few days and then convince my husband to get the lights up. I have 2 more wreaths, garland to string and a container to put together for in front of the front door, so come back!

    1. Great job, Laurie. I bought decorations for a wreath and Jim's sister showed me how to put it together. It's an inexpensive way to decorate for the holidays.

    1. I love your blog. Your pictures are so beautiful. We bought a house last year and we're still working on making it a home. Coming back again for a visit. When are you putting up your tree?

    1. Thanks so much! We are putting our tree on Sunday along with the rest of my indoor decorations. I'm trying something new this year, working on one project at a time! Crazy for me!! (:
