You would not believe what these determined young women were able to put together in a little over an hour!
These are the stacked birch front step decorations…..
Just 3 birch logs tied together with some wire and ribbon….
Add some greens a few pine cones and a big red bow…
A definite statement piece!
Talk about statement pieces….this oversized planter weighs a ton….but it was worth bringing!
Greens, long birch logs, red dogwood and another bright bow!
It went together in about 10 minutes….and looks like something that you would pay bunches of money for a pro to put together…
This is one of the swags made with the chicken wire form I wrote about earlier in the week.
That bow is really gorgeous….
Last year….the Sweetwater Daughter made her friend some light sconce swags for a gift….
This year that friend brought the ornaments and ribbon to the party and made her own!!!
This rustic container was a centerpiece at this friends wedding this fall…
She transformed 2 into some lovely table accents for her holiday home!
More front step planters on a smaller scale but still lovely….
This is a giant swag that will go over an arched doorway….
The chicken wire form trick went “giganto” to creat this look!
I do have to say I am glad I don’t have to figure out how to hang it up!
I do have to say that the quality of the “Crafts” has made some dramatic improvements from 20 years ago…..here is one of those ornaments from Christmas Past….cute….and a fun memory!
We even FACETIMED a distant friend in New Orleans so she could read a favorite story in her excellent “Cajun Accent” !
