It's beginning to look a little like Christmas.....

I have started a few little things around the house for Christmas. It is coming up so soon! And I want to have the house all decorated for our open house (which is coming up waaaay too fast as well!) I was very busy today and thought I would share a couple projects....

I decorated the urns at the front of our house. The dead mums were not very inviting! hah I also put up the huge wreath I made, and attached it really well


 I think they turned out pretty good!

I still wouldn't mind going for a walk out back and picking up more treasures to add

I also made something else. I got those little urn candles from Aunt Li, but had something else in mind


Add a base from Michael's, a little paint and...


taa daa. Cute, and all ready for Christmas!!

The new craft room is painted and I hope to post the reveal sometime this week! There are a few things that need to be finished first!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I am going to link this up at
Cottage Instincts!

Join in the fun!!

  5. Those urns are really beautiful. I wish I had more room by my front door so I could do something like that.

  6. I love that! Great idea! I was thinking of taking greens from my yard too and putting in my front planter {I only have the one}, but I like that you added a few Christmasy decorations. I think I have a couple of dollar store ornaments that I can add ~ thanks for the inspiration!
