Outdoor Christmas Decorating

I finished my part of the Christmas decorating today, on Saturday Drew will put up our lights and we'll be officially done. I'm also hoping the rest of inside of the house will be done too.

The first photo are 2 wreaths made of plain live wreaths, grapevine wreaths and then Christmas ornaments that I attached.

Then is a basket I put on my table on my side patio. I just used garland and I got out my handy glue gun and glued red ornaments and placed it in the basket.

This is the finished side patio.

At the front of the house besides the swag on the door I put together an urn and dressed up my favorite owl (a gift from my daughter and Drew).

A close up of the urn. It turned out to be a pain, it kept falling over so I had to re do it and place bricks inside of it so it will stay in place. There is just a mixture of Christmas greenery, pinecones, ornaments, twigs and berries in it.

The finished front door.

Bring on the lights!
