Decorate them of course. Many of you have pine trees where you can get fresh pine, but here not so much or at least not the good kind. I went to Home Depot and they had two carts filled with pine branches that they trimmed off the trees and said I could have all I wanted. Yeah!!
Free pine branches are added to wire hanging baskets.I found these baskets that someone was throwing out and love them. I just began buy cutting pieces and putting them in the baskets.
Once I had all the greenery in, I placed a nest and a bird inside the basket. The are under the overhang of the garage so should be protected. They also help to hide the cords for the outside lights.
Next came bows. I had them from last year. I think they were from the dollar store. I loved how the hanging baskets brightened up that area.
I added a bell to the bottom of the basket. I guess I can't leave well enough alone. In my next post I will tell you how to make these bells from items from the Dollar Tree.
No snow here, but looking a little more like Christmas. Love the pine smell. It made my car smell so wonderful. I thought about leaving it in there. lol!
Hope you are having fun getting ready for Christmas!
