Ok forgive my bad photography here! We had just received our new camera and didn't have a clue how to take pics in low light. Not that I have it all figured out now either but still...
Can you even tell what is going on here? I didn't think so.
Thankfully for some reason I did get this close up though. I wasn't blogging about things other than family stuff on our family blog last year so before after and during pics are lacking here but you can see that we just used some of that grapevine that you find all rolled up at Michaels or Hobby lobby and attached that to the stone. This stuff is a little hard to work with and get to stay in one place because it is so thick and twisted so hubs nailed it in place.
Then we twisted some garland around it, added a gazillion small and large white lights and stuck with simple red and white ornaments. When decorating outside I personally like the bigger the better philosophy with ornaments so they actually show up from the street.
Funny though...as I look back this garland was so bright you could hardly see the ornaments. Good to know!
So that's it..a strange post about last years door. You use what a got right?
Hope your all having fun getting into the festivities of this fun time of year!
This year I'm trying to focus on sitting on the couch more with the kiddos and hubs and not letting all the excess and bright lights take away from the reason our family celebrates!
