For years I’ve looked for a large decoration to put on the front porch. I’ve searched craft shows, supercenters, malls…..nothing.
I decided to use my free decorating challenge to make something myself.
So while we worked on the bathroom I kept my eye out for something I could use. I ended up using more pieces of the pallet we tore apart.
I told Jacob what I wanted to do with it and he cut it and screwed it together for me. Yes, Virginia, teenagers are a delight, despite what the world says.
Grace and Faith offered to paint it for me since the rest of use were busy painting inside the house.
And here it is…..
We wrapped fake gifts and put them under our old Christmas tree. The poinsettias are fake. No cost decorating. Oh yeah! I’m doing the happy dance!
Of course I had to use my Cricut!
It is so cheerful on that side of the porch that we decided to carry the candy cane theme to the front door.
Good thing I had a bunch of red ribbon left from Christmases past.
Faith made this little sign with scrapbook papers.
Oh dear, I can see that I have a confession I need to make. I did buy some candy canes. I got them for a school thing, but I did spend a dollar on them. Not totally free, but close enough for me.
I am so excited about my free candy cane fence. I’ve got all kinds of ideas now….an Easter fence? A fall fence? Valentine’s Day?! Now I’m getting excited!
