One Wreath, Two Seasons

Take one pine wreath...

24" Norway wreath

Add one wooden Santa head...


Grab a bow and throw in a few sprigs of berries, and TA-DA...

You have just created a simple, yet adorable Christmas wreath. 

But what's a girl (or boy) to do after Christmas?

Take that same pine wreath...

24" Norway wreath

This time, add a wooden snowman head...


Grab another bow (you can use those same sprigs of berries if you want), and TA-DA...

You have now created a wreath that will last you the rest of winter. that I take a step back, I think it's missing something. I think it needs lights. Luckily, I know where you can find some! 

LED string lights

Then I had a thought! To tie in the snowman theme, wrap our LED snowman lights around a the topiary beside your door.

Perfect. Now your front porch is complete until spring!

More Fun Than a Barrel...

Remember those barrel planters you bought for your petunias this summer? No need to stash them in the garage until next spring...winterize them by using them inside your home. 😀

Whether you have a green thumb or not, poinsettias (live or artificial) look splendid nested in a barrel planter. Especially if you're going for the Christmas-farmhouse feel.

Another way to use the barrel planter is by flipping it upside down and using it as a tree skirt. That's what Courtney at Hamby Home Decor did.

Instead of using it as a tree skirt, you could also use it as a tree stand. I found this image on Pinterest.

I find by extending the life of seasonal items, you get more for your money.What are some seasonal items you use throughout the year?

Good question.
