Valorie Hart attracted lots of ornaments outside to her entrance door in New Orleans. “I produced my noodle from cast-off ornaments by simply hot gluing them to a cheap fake green wreath,” she states. “I included two artificial trees and hot glued the exact same color ornaments, and elevated them in garden urns. I added lights into the wreath along with the trees”

“Straightforward Texas turquoise, ” states hrhdiane2. “We had fun painting this big Texas color on front door, so we kept the Christmas embellishment sparse.” Obviously, “sparse” in Texas can include excellent peacock feathers.
“We will have building going on in a few days, so elaborate was not in this year,” states er Victoria. “I decorated the tiny evergreen with dried flowers and a few ivy. The wreath has small lights to glow during the night, and all of the windows have candle lights”
