I have spent all of last week decorating and getting ready for Christmas. One of my favorite spaces to decorate is my front porch. I kept it pretty simple this year. I took the lantern from my front porch and sprayed it a new color.

That was when the grass was still green.

I took that lantern and put it on my porch and added a bit of greenery and lights to it.

Then I took this fun find and made it into a chalk board to hang a wreath on. We just cut some wood, and I sprayed it with chalk board paint. Then we stapled it onto the back of the frame.

It snowed today, so the snow on the bottom just adds to the wintery effect.

I added an old sled to the other side, and that is my simple front porch this year. I have wreaths on all my front windows, and a swag between the columns. I will have to post that another day. It is snowing hard out there.
