Our Front Porch Tree

We have a fairly large covered front porch. It normally holds our vintage wagon, bicycle and a pair of roller skates. We decided it needed some Christmas cheer too, so we decorated by adding a tree.
I decided to use a natural theme and used little apples and pine cones to decorate with.  I had the little apples in my Christmas stash and the pine cones were some my Mama gave me.  I used some of them in another fun project, I talked about HERE.
I added multi colored lights, the pine cones, a few glass ornaments with leaves that we had from way back, the apples and a string of silver snow flakes too.  You can read more about the sweet package and how to make its Twig Snow Flake Ornament HERE.
I pushed the old wagon up in front of the tree and then laid the skates inside.  I don't know about you, but we would love to received vintage goodness like this from Santa! ;)
I decided it needed a natural topper as well, so I created a twig star for the top.  You can look HERE for how I made it, its basically the same as the twig snow flake ornament I made, only larger.
This is how it normally looks on a daily basis.  The brown paper gift was a real gift for my Aunt and it went inside under our tree in there. We've been getting lots of packages and mail delivered to our front door in the past few weeks and I hope our sweet little tree brings a smile to those who see sure makes us smile!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
