Garland modification

I decided I wanted some garland on the front porch railing so we went to the store to pick some up this evening.  I couldn't find exactly what I wanted so I decided modify the garland I bought.

This is how the garland came, the only decoration were the pinecones.  I really wanted the holly berries to give it a little color but I didn't like the look of the garland that had berries so I added them myself.

I got 3 bundles of berries for $6 total.

My little helper.

After a lot of sniffing the final approval was given.  We modified two large garlands in about ten minutes for a total of $26 bucks.  I can't wait to put it up tomorrow when there is some daylight outside.

Have you decorated yet?  Is there something you are looking forward to making or putting up this year?


  1. I love it!
    Marley does too ;)
    oh no no the Halloween decorations are all on the dining room table still waiting to be packed up - maybe the magic decorating fair will come while I'm sleeping and do it! I wish!

  2. this is gorgeous!! I really need to create one for my front door :)

  3. Ah, this makes me feel all Christmas-y! And your little helper is adorable.

  4. Great idea! I never think to spruce up wreathes, I just get discouraged that I can't find one I like!

  5. i bet these look so much nicer then a shop brought one!
    I love decorating usually but i'm not sure if i'll be able to at uni this year :( x
