|This is from early last week|
But before putting the lights up, I decided the front porch needed a little bit more help, since it was looking pretty drab.
The hanging baskets were looking pretty bare since all the summer flowers died and I knew of a great way to make them look a little nicer using all free materials!
So with some leftover branches from our Christmas tree (more on that next week) and a few more pine and cedar branches from some trees along our property line, I made some pretty Christmasy boxes.
It was a quick and easy thing to do and I think it really adds to the front of our house. Once we had the Christmas lights wrapped around the railings, it was looking good!
I'm going to try and capture our house at night when you can actually see the lights but for now, this is all I've got. Aren't Mia and I cute though?
How are your Christmas decorations coming along? Do you do anything to the outside of your house/apartment/condo?
