this year I went with a green and white sort of theme with yellow and a few bright reds and then I added the light blue ornaments on a whim because of the blue in the blanket I' have hanging over a south facing window. anyway, I was please in how it all came together. I made a garland for the tree with some wooden beads, straws, and some ornaments painted green with white snowflakes glued on. also I wrapped a few spray painted white branches around a few green ornaments for a bit of natural effect. the tree is down now, just last weekend actually. ha
well these Christmas photos are way late and no one really feeling the holidays now, but I might as well record my 2020 Christmas. I went with the checkered theme and made 2 wreaths for the porch, one for each window. It made for nice symmetry. I made a black and white ribbon and wrapped that around each wreath with lots of red holly. I also wrapped a few large red ornaments with willow branches and painted the branches black for a sort of effect. I put 2 small trees outside each year, and this year I used red wool garland, and also made some garland with wooden blocks that I painted black and white and then drilled holes through to make a garland. I also wrapped the tree with willow branches that I spray painted white. Lots of fun spray painting this year. ha.
Another fun craft project was the tree branches and rope that I made into a tree shape or the side of the house. I got the idea from a smaller one at a store in town. There were piles of downed branches by the curb for weeks after the ice storm in November. so I used those and also cut cross sections to hang as sort of ornaments. I'm including a few photos of my little home in the snow. What a wonderful white Christmas it was this year with the snow!
