Bringing the rustic and natural colours from our living room at the front of the house, out onto our front porch/entry, has been my goal this week. These are the colours I used on our tree in the living room visible from the front porch window (to the left of the door and not seen in this photo.) The tree is almost finished, but I'm having trouble finding the burlap ribbon that some of you suggested in the comments here. In case I don't find it, I made garland ribbon out of drop cloth fabric, 4 " wide simple cut with no hems, and seamed together to make one continuous piece.
I sewed a bow out of the drop cloth fabric for the wreath on our front door. I wanted to go for a more simple look, and yet have the bow large enough to make a statement. Do ya think it's too big or droopy? I've gotten used to the wired sheer ribbons that take shape so easily and this is a big change from that. I may add one or two of the rusty stars from the tree, still thinking on that one.
Also linking up to Fireflies and Jellybeans Show off Your Stuff party. Thanks Fawnda and Jeannine.
I'm loving all these parties! Melissa at The Inspired Room's Holiday Linky Friday Party is one I'm joining for sure.
And of course, Funky Junk Interior's Saturday Nite Special party. Thanks Donna!
