Besides putting up our tree, I spent some time sprucing up our front porch this weekend. My goal with holiday decorating is to spend as little as possible.
Besides adding some fresh greenery (from our yard) to a wreath I already had, I also took my kids in the wooded area behind our house to collect fallen limbs. (Yes, they thought it was lots of fun and no one poked their eye out. . .)
Once I had our collection of branches, I sprayed them white. My parents did something similar last year and it looked so wintery. . .
I did buy two Allen+Roth black planters from Lowe’s and two Dwarf Alberta Spruce trees that will hopefully last year-round.
I liked the white branches so much that I even brought some inside. Will show you that later this week.
