Holiday Porch

I know I know, it's only November 5th, but I am one of those holiday enthusiasts that plunge into the festive decor early on. Following the Indigo stockings I've already put out on our mantle, I started to decorate our front porch. The first up is wreath. When it comes to holiday ornaments, the choices are unlimited these days. Retailers would even organize them by color and theme for ease of shopping. I am all in for the shiny ornaments but the one single major turnoff has been the sparkle dust. It'd appear that 99% of the holiday ornaments these days are dipped in it...argh...imagine it gets on my hands, rugs and everything else in the house.

So I picked up these plain-jane long needle pine wreaths from President's Choice on Sunday and got right to work to glam them up.

This is the after, the wreaths now on my front door. I silver-leafed the pine cones, twigs and added a cluster of small silver ornament balls as a focal point.
 
This is a more close-up picture. I might add more ornaments to it but for now I am kind of liking the simple and clean look.  

This is a super easy and quick craft project anyone can do at home. Have you done any fun DIY craft projects lately?
