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!!!)


I love the way it looks!  How about you?  Have you gotten your front porch all gussied up for the Holidays?  If so you should hop over and link it up with Beth @ The Stories of A to Z – she is having a Christmas Front Porch Party!  Hop over and check out some of the other great porches out there!!!

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
