Front Porch Christmas Decorations

A deep freeze is headed our way so I started to decorate my front porch yesterday.             
 I started with a plain wreath and added trimmings from my gardens.  I wired on pine cones and added holly and fir.

 Teddy helped.

 I added some silk poinsettias, a few red balls and some red berries.

 I use fake green garlands that I buy at thrift stores for next to nothing.  I wire them together to give them bulk.

 Then I just start adding adornments.  At first it looks sort of weird. I never know where I am going with this until I actually start doing it.

 But slowly it comes together. I added a cardinal and more flowers to the wreath.

 A few more touches and it will be finished.  And another chore will be checked off my list.
