This morning I was working out in the yard: watering and transplanting some plants, cleaning up my greenhouse, and piddling around the yard for a while, when I was inspired to make a
Junky Little Christmas Wreath for my Gazebo.
It all started with a used basic green Christmas wreath form.
I had a string of 100 white mini lights, a rusty old license plate, a saw blade, and what I think is a medallion from a chandelier or light fixture. I "tied" these item on with the silk Christmas greenery from the wreath and then added 3 rusty bed springs.
Then I added a couple strips of burlap fashioned into a bow. It still needed something, so I went and clipped a few branches off a cedar tree in the pasture. The clippings were tucked in and aound the wreath and viola - A Junky Christmas Wreath!
I then headed off to town for a while this afternoon and then came home to this!
Notice Bo - he thinks the chair in the gazebo is his bed!
I wasn't sure if I was going to do any outdoor decorating this year, but I'm glad I felt inspired this morning.
I hope you all have a Merry Junk-Filled Christmas!
