This weekend I was taking down the fall decorations from the porch, and I realized that I had had this grapevine garland around our front door for two years! It has served as a base for all of my front door decorating since then so I thought I’d put together a little roundup showing the grapevine garland through the seasons.
Little did I know two years ago that the grapevine garland would stay up so long! Here is when I first used it as part of our decorations for Christmas on the Porch. You see, I thought our country cottage needed a little something around the front door, and grapevine seemed the appropriate choice. First, I put up the garland (purchased from Hobby Lobby) and then I wove some burlap ribbon through it. Then I tucked some Leyland cypress greenery into it with some floral wire.
You can see how I did that a little better in this photo. I couldn’t resist adding a little wooden initial along with some swags of greenery and plaid ribbon on the wall. After Christmas, I removed the greenery and left up the garland and burlap.
Spring rolled around and I decided to use the garland again when I showed my Painted Bunnies and Eggs on the Porch.
Adding some spring flowers and hanging the painted eggs on the garland was all it took to turn it from a Christmas garland into a spring one.
Well, spring gave way to summer and the next thing I knew, I was working on my Fourth of July Burlap Wreath and Porch Display.
Fall arrived, and I put Scarecrows on our Fall Porch and turned the garland into a fall display.
It a great place to display family ornaments as part of Christmas on the Front Porch 2013.
When I made my Neutral Spring Wreath, I added some polka dot burlap ribbon to the garland but kept up some of the sparkly mesh that was on it at Christmas.
Spring yielded to summer and I created my Summertime’s Calling Me porch.
Soon I found myself adding some Patriotic Touches to the Porch.
For fall, I thought I’d put some Owls on our Front Porch.
But they’ve all been removed by now. I’m getting ready to decorate the front porch for Christmas and the garland, of course!
Stay tuned for the continuing story of “Just How Long Can I Make This Garland Last!”
