Front porch Christmas decorating 2011

 

Welcome to our home!

This year the porch is decorated with a trio of wreaths on the door and greenery filled urns flanking each side.

Using sparkly silver ribbon on the wreaths and touches of spray snow on the greenery in the urns makes it feel like a winter wonderland.

The greenery in the urns was clipped from shrubs and trees in our yard, and a few sprigs of greenery are tucked into each faux wreath.

For height in the urns, I added a few longer twigs and sprayed on a little fake snow.

I added a few pinecones, snowflakes and silver ornaments.

Creating the trio of wreaths was a bit trickier than I imagined and I’ll explain in another post.

I get asked a lot about the iron piece on the stone wall; it’s actually supposed to be a door mat, but because it’s iron, it’s hard to stand on. So, it hangs on the wall instead.

I’ve been doing some baking and will post a few recipes soon.

Hope you’re enjoying this holiday season!

  1. That looks so pretty, Debbie! I love the trio of wreaths. I think that makes for a great look where you don't have much space {like a porch} for decorating. I have a ton of wreaths and may try that next year.

  2. Marvelous, Debra! If there's anything better than one wreath on the door, it's three! The urns flanking the door are wonderful, too. Now I must get some fake snow for what I've done because it doesn't appear that there'll be any real stuff in time for Christmas.
