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!

The DIY Show Off

Join in the fun!!


  1. Very cute cloche stand! And the front of your home looks nice. Visiting from Cindy's party...


  2. very cute!!!!!!!! I have a little urn like that--I think I'll try it!


  3. Looks great! And you just reminded me that there is a very dead mum on my front porch ;)

  4. Really like those urns....dead mums do nothing for me :o) So glad you linked up...I'm gathering lotsa ideas for holiday decor from all you earlybirds!

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

    Passing the Kreativ Blogger Award on to you! Check my blog for the image and rules.

  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!

  7. Everything looks wonderful. I like the urns a lot!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Very cute. The urns turned out great and I love your cloche. I just picked up another cloche from Goodwill not too long ago and love how you did yours!
