Red , White and Burlap Front Porch & The Christmas Countdown !

 This year my porch has a red, white and burlap design .. This was last years porch with the green decomesh.. I took the green decomesh off, and added white decomesh and also burlap .
I kept the same red and white ornaments on the garland. The garland also has white lights so its very pretty at night.
 I made my picket fence/ chalkboard countdown sign the same way I made the Halloween Countdown . I bought picket fence pieces from Home Depot , and made the sign.. I sprinkled glitter on the painted letters before they were dry so its very sparkly ..
 There is a twig Santa on a vintage wooden crate , with a lantern and some of the Dollar Tree ornaments inside .. Also a snowman birdhouse we got at an estate sale. The doormat came from Goodwill , it was brand new from Target :)
 I made the JOY sign from an old shelf we had , used my cricut to cut out letters .. traced around them and painted ..
 The vintage plastic Santa is HUGE .. He was given to me by a friend , she didn't want him anymore and he is one of my favorite Christmas things ! We repainted him a couple years ago ,because he was in such bad shape.
 I also took the green decomesh off of the wreath for the front door  and added some burlap..

Then I added a thrifted silver tray painted with chalkboard paint .. I used a white sharpie to write on because I didn't think that chalk would be ok outside in the cold.  I used pipe cleaners on the handles of the tray to anchor it to the wreath.
 I added a burlap and sequin ribbon( I got the sequin ribbon at Hobby Lobby last year, after Christmas , really cheap !) bow to the top .For the base of my wreaths I use a regular evergreen Christmas wreath so its really full..Can't be having a skimpy wreath !

 Thanks so much for visiting ! Our inside Christmas decorating finally is finished .. yesterday my husband put the village up ..we had to change its location this year , so it was a big job .. I can't wait to show you !
 
I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !

How much fun would it be to live next door to you!! Everything is merry and bright indeed. I have a village to put out also and I'm saving it for last, because it takes so long.

How do you get your wreath to stay up on your glass storm door?
