my Trash to Treasure Christmas decoration for the front porch

kacramJanuary 23, 2009

I didn't do many Christmas decorations, because of all the travelling and stress with Dad. We had a beautiful 12 foot noble fir for our tree, but all we got up were the lights! But it was beautiful. And then I threw these together. It took about 15 minutes, and I didn't do it the way I wanted to, but will do a better job now that I have the time! lol Anywhoo.... these are the old oak barrel planter strappings and some stars that I purchased for dirt cheap! lol I put the three of them on the posts on our front porch. They are actually still there... (shhhh, don't tell anyone! lol) Don't look at our railings and chairs.. they need a new coat of paint.. and replacing the light! lol

Those are great, Kat. I'd just take off the bows and leave them up for year round decoration. I love rusty stuff outside!
