Ok – so I know I have been teasing you all about this one for awhile now – so here we go.  My holiday front porch!

As you can see I hung my pretty faux mercury ornaments up!  I have them both hanging from the roof of the porch and as the centerpiece of my holiday wreath!

Oh and I also made some pinecone “flower” kissing balls!  I will share a tutorial on those later in the week!   Here is a closer look!  I hung them with some shear red ribbon!  I really do love how the faux mercury ornaments turned out – just the perfect touch!

My wreath is another one of my grapevine creations.  I just used some pine floral picks and tied on a tube of $1 non breakable silver ornaments that I got at Target.  Then used another one of my big mercury ornaments as my centerpiece!  I really like how this turned out.  Super simple but really pretty!   And it only cost me a little over $1 to make it since I already had everything else!

I wrapped some faux garland around our one little post and I have lights running through it too!  Here is a night shot.  We have gotten a little snow today!

And another close up!  (You like that you can see my Snuggie on the couch in there – yep – I have one and it is cozy!!!)

Very pretty entry. Also, I enjoyed your post on the mercury makeover of the ornaments. They really look good...I'll have to file away that for future reference. Great technique. Linda

Your porch looks great, Jess! I love the idea of hanging the ornaments from your porch roof...I might have to try that next year!
