I'm still adding some decorative touches all around my house. My front porch has been looking pretty bare, so I thought it would be nice to add more greenery. I had already created an arrangement using a large planter:
So, I decided to continue on with that theme. I found some great pine cones at Hobby Lobby, then later found some that were equally as nice at a local garden store for a fraction of the price. Unfortunately, I had already purchased the pine cones from Hobby Lobby. I guess there's always next year, if I find that I need more. I also borrowed a few more pine boughs from my neighbor's tree (thanks neighbor).
A few large, red ornaments were the finishing touch. (look you can see my reflection in one of them) I used some floral wire to wire it all together. We get some unbelievable wind, so I also wired the arrangement to the bench. Just a simple, but lovely little touch. It doesn't take much to make me feel proud of myself.
