Have you finished decking the halls and trimming the tree? I’ve been adding some Christmas Joy to the back porch of my Potting Shed. . .
I hung some galvanized letters on my shutters to spell “Joy” and cut some sprigs of cedar to tuck in the louvers for a little Christmas green.
Pots are filled with Christmas greenery, free for the clipping, and my ladder is draped with pine garland.
A rake is decorated with hanging ornaments tied with twine and some vintage garden tools.
A wire cloche is filled with a mixture of pine cones and inexpensive shatterproof red ornaments, nesting on a bird bath.
Pine garland is climbing a bird finial topiary, replacing the mandevilla growing this summer.
And a bird is nesting with pine cones on a pillow with a plaid throw.
My ladder is topped with a red watering can filled with greenery. . .
Joining a metal reindeer, Birch trunk star lanterns, pots with pine cones and a galvanized watering can.
An olive bucket holds a potted spruce tree. . .
Burlap bags with a buffalo check holds a pot of juniper and pots of rosemary.
A pair of urns on the porch are filled with a mixture of greenery~ Leyland cypress, holly, juniper and pine.
I added the cut stems directly into the soil in the urn to hold them in place and to keep them fresh longer. Red ornaments add a pop of color and Christmas cheer, along with hanging stars.
You can see the front porch Christmas nesting details, here.
