When you are decorating your house, don’t forget about the outside!  That is the first thing people will see when they arrive.  If you need a good wreath idea for your front door, there are lots of ideas in this post.  And also, don’t forget your light fixtures!  They can easily be changed out or spray painted to match.

This interchangeable sign is cute and cheap to make!

Lacking some out door tables?  Just use a stump!  (I am saving one from a tree that fell in our backyard just for this! Smile )  You could even paint it or remove the bark for a different look.

Love these mason jars and candles – cheap and would be great for a party!

I see chandeliers like this all the time at yard sales and Goodwill for $5 or less (Laine just scored one for a $1 at a yard sale and you have to see what color she painted hers! 🙂

Love this one used as candle-lier! Smile  Wouldn’t that be gorgeous at night?


I really liked this architectural monogrammed pendant!  Looks designer but for a crafting price!


Sand & Sisal takes you step-by-step how she decorated her deck.

Love these concrete planters/candle holders!  Sweet Something Designs has the steps on how she created them.

And there are so many more ideas!!

Plants, landscaping, flowers, trees, seasonal décor….

Just make sure you don’t forget to decorate the outside of your home too! Smile

What is your favorite outdoor décor?



  1. I do the mason jars on my porch. It’s especially cozy in the fall with the pumpkins and mums and such. And the stump gave me a great idea! We could so use that on our porch…wondering if my hubby would drag one up for me from our field??? =)
