DIY ~ Christmas Baskets!!!

Sorry guys I didn't take enough pictures! It was freezing out and I had to take my gloves off every time to snap a needless to say, I didn't take very many.

This is me just posting about my lovely little railing baskets out front. If you have been here before then you know I changed them for the summer and for fall, so here is Christmas! :)

Start with cedar, fir or twig branches. {I used East Coast Cedar which I had never seen before because I grew up on the West Coast.}

Take out all your fall leaves, pumpkins, etc. from your previous baskets.

Stick the new cedar or fir branches into your dirt.
Add decorative items. I used pine cones, some silver Christmas balls and some long red sparkly faux flower branch.
TA DA!!!! Front door Christmas Decor! :)

I also filled my special reindeer baskets with the same sort of decorations. My Dad made me these and I love them because they make me think of home. My mom always had these guys on our front porch filled with holly from my Grandpas house :) Memories.
Aren't they cute????

So, now my front stoop is Christmafied...onto outdoor lights and inside :)
