I live in the sticks where company is few and far between. That doesn’t stop me from adding festive touches around the yard. Distant neighbors who live across the canal up on the hill can easily see the latest decorations around the property.
Decorations from each season are kept in sealed plastic tubs. It makes it so easy to keep my favorite items ready to use when the holiday rolls around again. Solar pumpkin lights are a delight to place out along the driveway and around the mailbox.
This year I’m considering making October bouquets with streamers to hang along the fence. This is a fun decoration for the kids to make, as well. Use some of the autumn artificial flowers you’re about ready to replace, or get some from your local economy or thrift shop.
Make several bouquets to hang from branches, fences, and gates. Tape the stems tightly together near the base of the flowers. Tie ribbons or strips of material around the tape and make a fancy or distressed bow. Add old pieces of jewelry or glow-in-the-dark stickers that glimmer with an air of mystery after the sun goes down.
What are some of the ways you add cheer to the fall holidays?
