A quick shot of my wreath...
It was windy this morning so the bow wouldn't stay in place.
And back to the trees...
Here is one,
all snug and tight in the urn.
Many of you gave some excellent suggestions on how to keep the trees in place. Thank you very much, by the way! I ended up using a combination of some of those suggestions.
My friend, Karolyn from The Relished Roost suggested that I use some styrofoam balls from Michael's. I found some square florist foam instead and went with that.
I had to cut them down to fit in the urns.
A very messy job and I am lucky I didn't cut off my arm!
(Maybe something besides a steak knife would have worked better!)
But eventually I was able to make them fit!
I was worried that with our crazy winter winds, I would need some extra weight in there. I headed to Home Depot for some gravel like some of you suggested.
And as you can see, these babies aren't going anywhere now!
Now, if the temperatures would only warm up, I could get my husband to put up the outside lights! I tried to talk him into it weeks ago when it was still a little warm but he waited and now I have the sad-non-festive house on the block. Boo hoo..
Are you still decorating?
Or, am I the only one?
