The porch decorating started back in November when Leo and I made these DIY Wooden Christmas Trees. They are behind 3 smaller artificial trees that I put in a galvanized container.
This whole scene at this end of the porch sets the stage for a winter wonderland on the porch. You see, here in the South we rarely see snow, and we’re fascinated by it! And I have NEVER seen a white Christmas. So I set out to create my own this year!
The skate that I hand-painted last year is hanging on the stand that’s always on the porch.
Around the front door is the grapevine garland that’s been up now for 3 Christmases. You can see all the ways it’s been decorated in the post Grapevine Garland Through the Seasons. This year i added a snowflake burlap ribbon, some large snowflake ornaments, and some real cotton that I glitterized! They really do look like puffy snowballs!
It’s loaded with more snowmen and snowflake ornaments.On the old closet doors turned into shutters are 2 frosty wreaths with pine cones hanging from them. None of this is new-just part of my stash that I combine in a new way each year.
