Well, I went a little MIA on the blog-front last week. I'm back and ready to Countdown to Christmas!
As far as exterior Christmas decorating goes, we put "candles" in our kitchen window and twinkle lights along the ledge of our living room window. I also made a big evergreen container with branches, boughs, and multi-coloured balls. I have a pack of outdoor lights to string around it, if I ever manage to dig around in the basement for an extension cord! :) I also put together a festive little wreath.
We sell local undecorated wreaths at work, so I purchased one and put together some design elements to match our door. Chocolate brown, silver and turquoise is a bit non-traditional, but it's fun and can stay up for as long as the wreath lasts. It's a good "winter" decoration! Have a look at what I came up with:
I made a bow out of brown and turquoise sinemay mesh and layered it with loops of silver ribbon. I wired a turquoise poinsettia to the centre and attached to whole concoction to the wreath. I love how it turned out! It matches our entrance quite nicely:
