I already shared my front door but I thought I would share the rest of the front of my house. On my house, the front door is actually on the side of the house, and hidden from the street (bummer right?!)
So I have to decorate the front of the garage if I want most people to see my hard work. This year I hung some swag lights I have used for a couple years now, and to beef it up I used a swag of I bought at Costco for $15. (This was before I discovered how to make my own realistic looking garland for free.. so I won't do that ever again!) And my kids love the little frosty inflatable so up he went!
I used my thrift store ice skates on my wreath again this year.
But my favorite part of my whole yard is my mailbox. I shared the box itself on my last post about leftover tree trimmings, but I want to show you the whole vignette (I spilled the beans a little on Instagram):
Those are the 'faux' gifts I made last year. They hold up great since they are wrapped in foil and can easily withstand the elements. I used them last year on my front porch:
But like I said, nobody can see my porch, so this year they went out to the curb:
Now if I could just get the neighborhood kids to stop shaking them and trying to figure out what was inside!
