Want Some Quick Holiday Decorating Tips?
What you can do with a paint bucketTake a paint bucket and spray paint it red! Add some fresh greenery and some Christmas bulbs and voila! We get fresh greenery wherever Christmas trees are sold. The vendors are always kind to share their evergreen trimmings with us.
And here's a tip. Fill up the bucket first with something else - like stones or bricks, as examples. That way the bucket stays put and you only need a few inches of greenery at the top.
The red bucket filled with greenery is festive at our front door
Throwback: our Christmas porchWe don't sew new covers for our porch cushions every season. In fact, we have a much easier way (cheater's way) to change up things on our porch. The plaid flannel you see on our chairs above is simply wrapped around the cushion and pinned in the back.
It stays put perfectly and saves so much time. Plus the fabric can be used for other things later.
The snowflakes are wooden cut-outs we got at the dollar store a few years ago - and simply fastened to the pillows with ribbon tied in back. Easy is good, in our opinion!
