Welcome to day five and more Christmas porch decorations. This time I started with four things that were all TOTALLY FREE.
Now listen closely because I’m going to tell you the secret to putting all this together and making it look amazing.
1. Put all the crap in the bucket.
That’s it. No magic. No detailed instructions. Just move things around until you like the way it looks. Oh, and I did find some red ribbon in my stash so I tied it around the bucket for a pop of color.
One of the things I like most about this project is it looks pretty during the day and during the night. Here are some daytime pics.
And here are some nighttime photos – with one little addition. I was digging through my Christmas boxes and found these oversized ornaments. I couldn’t resist the red and gold so I snuggled one down in the branches. Love it!
So pretty. So simple. So FREE.
Do you ever gather things from the yard (or neighbor’s yard) to put together outdoor decorations? Do you end up liking them better than the expensive, store-bought version?
