Out with the Christmas décor and in with a seasonal Winter Porch that’s simple and festive!
Taking down the Christmas Décor is always a little sad, so to cheer myself up, I worked on a simple new Winter Porch to replace the holiday stuff. I love teal and red together which ended up working out really well since my table and chair cushions are turquoise.
I made the “Let it snow” wood sign with a 12-inch by 48-inch sheet of pine wood, which runs about $8 at Home Depot. I painted with with 2 coats of Chalkboard Paint (like I did in this sign tutorial). After it dried and I seasoned the sign with chalk, I did the hand-lettering for the text with plain white chalk first. Then I traced it with a white chalkboard marker. I added the two snowflakes using a Martha Stewart Holiday stencil I’ve had for years. Not bad for about $10 total!
I already had the lanterns which I found for $3 each in the Target Dollar Bins a little over a month ago. I also had the red flowers which are from Michael’s. The bottle brush tree I found on clearance at Target for $8 a few days before Christmas.
Come back Thursday for the full tutorial on how I made the big Deco Mesh Winter Wreath!
