My Christmas Front Porch and Exterior

Pin It

I am finally getting around to posting pictures of my holiday decorating this year.  First up: The Exterior.

On the front of the house, by the garage doors I hung a live wreath with a couple of ice skates I picked up at the goodwill for $5. I originally added a few more things to the wreath but decided it looked nicest with a single bow, which made the focal point the skates:

On black friday I lucked out and got a $5 live garland at  Home Depot.  I added some ribbon bows I had in my christmas stash, along with some unbreakable ornaments I picked up at the dollar store.

 Because there was a little open space to the right of the door, I decided to add some fake packages, wrapped in waterproof foil (from the dollar store):

Now if the kids would just stop asking what was inside!

    Very pretty entrance! Nothing is quite as nice as a real garland.

  2. Hi,
    Your entrence looks very nice. I have also fake packages. I put a very big stone in each one (so they can not fly around).
    A very big hug from Germany

    You made me laugh with the "what was inside"! it's just the same around this lands! :) I love your porch with the presents and that cute snowman! Great deal on the garland ;)

  4. I love the idea of the skates hanging from the wreath. Also, the fake presents is great! Just tell the kids that they're presents FOR Santa instead of FROM him. That will really stump 'em! Ha, ha, ha!

  5. OMG! I just noticed my grammar! I said "the fake presents IS great." Where did I go to school? I am hanging my head in shame!

  6. Beautiful! I love the skates too, they're my favorite! :)
