I shared our full holiday home tour a few weeks ago. But, due to weather, I didn’t get to finish up our outdoor decor until this week. Because clearly, it’s better to wait until IT SNOWS to finish your outside decorations.
But I’m not over the porch. A red front door is pretty all year, but there’s something perfect about a red door at Christmastime.
You already saw our non-wreath. I originally made this non-chalkboard arrangement for Henry’s birthday party. (Check out this tutorial at Perfectly Imperfect for more about making inexpensive faux chalkboards with poster board.) I simply added our wedding DIY pinecone wreath and a quick Christmas tree chalk drawing.
The weathered fence was a gift from my mom a few years ago. The berry wreaths were hand-me-downs from my in-laws and the poinsettia arrangements were alter arrangements at our wedding. I love that we can use them each holiday.
On the other side of the door, we have the second poinsettia arrangement, a red wagon borrowed from my in-laws and another holiday chalkboard.
For our fence planters, I simply cut and added some real greenery to the cans. (I grabbed the pine branches from Home Depot. Did you know they give the trimmings away for free?)
And that’s our exterior tour.
