Back Porch Decorating!

The way our house is situated, everyone comes to our back door instead of the front. So no one sees the front of my house, just the back because it sits sideways to the street and faces the river which is a wonderful view for us, but not good for decorating. So the back porch it is! I have a table that sits on the right side of the door that is always fun to put something on. The first picture you see is made with a simple grapevine wreath and deco mesh that I have absolutely fell in love with. I have used it on several of my wreaths for my booth and folks really seem to like them. Pine cones and a few ornaments are hot glued in and a lantern sits in the middle. Very simple to do. The wreath was very easy to. Again with the deco mesh and a few ornaments and berries was all that was needed. The urn was the most fun! I cut branches from our cedar tree and holly bush for the greenery, then more deco mesh (loving that stuff) and ornaments glued in so the wind won't blow them away. The little tree sits in two grapevine wreaths with a lantern behind and wa la, that is it. Very simple and it didn't take very long to do. I hope you enjoyed my very quick directions to. lol. Have a wonderful time decorating! Thank you for
visiting my blog. Please check out Metamorphosis Monday! You will be inspired!

Everything looks wonderful! I wish I could use fresh greenery but I am highly allergic to it. I would love for you to link this up to Wickedly Crafty Saturdays at Wiccan Make Some Too!

I grew up in a house that people only came through the back door. Makes things kind of difficult for the decorating, but sounds like you have made it work for you. Good job.

I love the ribbon you used! I've never given much thought to decorating my back porch before now. Thanks for sharing.

I would be honored to have you add it to my blog party

Great idea with the lantern. I have some I have been saving to use like that & had not even thought of making one for the table outside! Love it. I was considering putting one on a pole with a stand for the front porch though. You inspired me!
