This Years Outdoor Decor

     I love getting the after Christmas decoration deals. There are always a lot of great ones, if you are willing to look. But, what is so awesome about those deals is forgetting that you got them and being so surprised when you open your decoration boxes the following November. I'm telling you its just like Christmas all over again! ;)

     That happened this year! I completely forgot I had purchased some lighted garland {along with a few other things}, and now I have something to add to my porch pillar! I love that!

     This isn't a dramatic reveal since its pretty much what I did last year. The only major difference is I used one of my monogrammed pots for my Christmas tree on the porch and changed up the decor in the window box.


     The little tree is made from garland wrapped around a tomato cage and just pushed into the dirt in my pot to secure it. Here's last year's tutorial.

     It was an engineering fete to get everything plugged in and working. {I still can't find the right cord to hook up the wreath light yet}.

     Here's what I can tell you about outdoor decor for Christmas:

  • Its a lot more pleasant of an experience to put up if its relatively warm outside.
  • Anchor everything well so that on a blizzard-y day things don't end up in the neighbors yard. {I used 7 inch pieces of an old hanger bent into "U" shaped pieces to hold my garland in the window box~it still has dirt in it.}
  • You will need far more extension cords than you think you will.


I'm sharing this here:
