Our Outdoor Christmas Decor

When my husband made me these window boxes this summer, I was already getting excited about decorating them for Christmas.  I knew I wanted to use fresh evergreen boughs and some Christmas lights to add some festive touches to the front of our home.  We bought the evergreen boughs at a local florist shop.  The "dogwood sticks" are just some sticks from our yard that I spray painted "Colonial Red."  We did want to buy real dogwood sticks but they were over eight dollars for a small bunch.  DIYing them ourselves saved us a bundle!

What do you do to decorate the front of your home for Christmas?  Leave a comment and a link if you like so we can all visit!  Happy Monday!


  1. Love your welcoming home. Clever idea about the dogwood sticks - you've inspired me to do something with my window boxes. Thanks.

  2. so pretty! We are redoing our 63 yr old house, and this year is the first one for outdoor decor-lights around the windows and roping around the arbor are what we have going on right now; I am sure we will add as we can:)
    Happy Christmas!

  3. You are my kind of Christmas crafting genius. :)

    So glad I found your project via Centsational Girl.

    I would love for you to visit Decor To Adore. I am in the midst of a "Gifts You Can Make" series.

    Be merry and bright!
