Christmas Decorating Outdoors

Decorating outside at Christmas is always fun.

This year we opted to stay with a red, green, and plaid theme .

We started with a fresh wreath from Costco.  It came with the berries and pinecones.

We added the oversized red bell and red plaid bows.

The bows we made from plaid yardage.  
We cut strips of fabric about two yards long.  
The strips are each about ten inches wide.  This fabric is easy to fringe by pulling out threads until there is a fringe about 1/2 inch long on each side.

We filled buckets and planters with fresh cut greenery from our farm and added hits of red and plaid.


We placed plaid and check pillows on the bench.  The deer pillow came from The Dark Horse in Sunderland last year.

The red plaid and black & white check pillow covers we made last year.

I have two of these red traffic lanterns from the 1940's  They are lit by kerosene, but, I placed battery operated mini lights inside of them.

I have had the red bucket for many years and I'm not sure where it came from.

Merry Christmas.
Happy Holidays.
