I just love Christmas lights and candlelight sparkling and flickering in the night, don’t you? Let’s take a peek at my Christmas front porch tonight!
I am loving my new Rustic DIY JOY sign (tutorial here) and so glad that now that my shutters and door are black instead of burgundy I can go crazy with RED at on my porch now! Red just screams Christmas to me and when you have a large space outdoors you want the colors to POP from the street!
The wreath on the door is the EASIEST, fastest wreath I have ever made. And it all came from Goodwill on 2 different trips this fall. :)
So how do you make an easy layered Christmas wreath for cheap?
Find a twig wreath at Goodwill (for $3.82 or something like that.)… Or buy one at a craft store.
strip off all the old/falling off berries, use the wreath to decorate for fall inside, and move it to the front door for Christmas.
Layer a faux or real evergreen wreath on top, add a bow, and you are done!
This faux wreath was another Goodwill find for $2.52 found several weeks after I found the twig wreath. It came with all the pretty berries and pinecones already – all I needed to do was add a pretty red velvet bow.
In fact there are several second hand finds on my porch. Both of the wreaths on the door came from Goodwill, the sled was a $5 flea market buy and the little green wreath on the sled was found at Value Village for $0.80 recently.
And the lanterns! I got 4 of them in a box at a yard sale for $4.00 and I love to use them on my porch hanging from my fern hooks (real candles lit for this picture but I normally have battery operated candles inside on a 4 hour timer.)
I just love my Christmasey porch this year! I love coming home to the lights all lit and twinkling and the candles glowing.,,
This is HOME… and I love it!
