Christmasing on the Doors



Hello, Dear Ones. I wanted to show you what I did with our front doors. If you remember, I used the poly deco mesh on my Christmas tree and had some left over. I poked a lighted garland up over my front doors and added the left over deco mesh.

If you'll look closely you'll see a tiny little fuzzy black face trying to come out of the left door! Chloe Dawn's little nose is poking out!

I had just a tad of the red deco mesh left so I added a bowlike thingy in the center of my garland. Kind of an unibrow garland! :)

Then I added Christmas balls! I went to the dollar store and found these. They're plastic and they won't break when the wind blows. I attached them with some branchy pipe cleaners so the Christmas balls could hang down!

Then I couldn't leave well enough alone. I had my two wreaths on the door with some golden looking balls. With the teeny little bit of deco mesh left, I poked the mesh into the wreath and added a red sort of bow in the center to match the garland!

Just so you'll know, Chloe Dawn did escape into the front yard...sniffing where all of the neighborhood dogs leave their calling cards! :)



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Home For the Holidays

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
'Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can't beat home, sweet home

I met a man who lives in Tennessee
And he was headin' for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Pennsylvania folks are trav'lin' down
To Dixie's sunny shore
From Atlantic to Pacific, gee,
The traffic is terrific!

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
'Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can't beat home, sweet home
~ sung by Perry Como

  6. Love what you've done with the front doors - especially the balls hanging down, I'm seeing that around Blogland (usually in the kitchen) this year and just love it. So glad you added the mesh, too, looks great! Chloe Dawn is so adorable, sweet girl.

    Hugs,
    Mary

  45. Just like you, I love decorating and painting our door every Christmas. It's because I want to have our focal point of our house to be new once it enters the New Year. By the way, that wreath decor of yours is really gorgeous!
