Joy on The Front Porch


Good morning!
First of all Thank you for all your sweet comments yesterday ! I really appreciate all of you!
So for today's post we are on the front porch .. Ronnie, one of our Jack Russell's is there to welcome you in!

 I found these black letters at Hobby Lobby ( they were each 7.99 but then 50% off ..so $7.99 for both).. So I bought the J and Y and a small grapevine wreath..I outlined the letters with a white chalkboard marker to make them strand out more..
 I trimmed the wreath with flocked picks from Michael's added a bow made from red and black gingham ribbons and a sparkly red ornament..
 I used black floral wire to hold the letters to the wreath ..I tried hot glue but that did not work well ..the wire worked fine..
 I used the same decomesh garland from last year ..It has white and red decomesh along with burlap all tied into a evergreen garland..there are white lights strung throughout..

 I added black check and red plaid bows all along the garland..
 The Christmas Countdown made on fence pickets with a chalkboard painted space to count down the days sits next to the vintage blow mold Santa..I just love the red plaid with the black gingham !

Beautiful! Love all your little special touches that make items "yours", not just something you bought at the store. So very creative!

Your front porch is so welcoming! Love how you created the JOY decoration. I would never have the imagination to do that.

Priscilla,
LOVE the JOY!!! Great idea!! And i always admire your use of deco mesh in your garlands on the front porch. i wish i could do that but mine is exposed to the elements and the deco mesh fades......

Hugs,
Deb
