Excerpts With Jennifer Davenport



On Making a Mitten Wreath

Christmas door decor from JenniferDecorates.com

Jennifer designed this adorable mitten door decoration


"I added a little bit of grapevine to give it a woodsy feel...because I wanted it to look rustic and added the mittens with floral wire, and then just a bow; it's pretty easy."



On Decorating a Christmas Tree with Bows
Audio Program: On this podcast Jennifer of JenniferDecorates.com shares easy Christmas projects such as decorating a Christmas tree with ribbon loops like you see here. Listen to our program at www.front-porch-ideas-and-more.com/podcast-16-easy-christmas-projects.html


"I use three ribbons in three different sizes and cut them about 15 inches and make a loop; a loop in the middle,and then you have the tail. And then you take the floral wire and wrap around that loop and the trick to make it look cool in the tree is you fold it in half and kind of push it back into your tree..."

Shatter-proof Ornament Decoration
Super easy decoration - shatterproof ornaments in a pot

So super easy - colorful ornaments in a pot


"You want to get the shatter-proof ornaments, 10 or 15 of them, and lay them in a pot. What's really cool is if you get the shatter-proof ornaments, then in the evening when you have your outside lights on it hits the glitter on the ornaments and just looks beautiful..."



Easy Tree Skirt Idea

"One of my favorites that is really, really easy, is to buy a blanket or a throw, .... and I found a lime-green throw and just nestled it under the tree in a circle..."
