I'm the first in the neighborhood to be able to say...
Merry Christmas, Neighbors!
I know it's on the early side for Christmas decorating, however, I wanted to be able to get my pics ready and posts written in time to share some ideas for your own decor.
Each change of season our mailbox gets a new look to welcome neighbors and passers by.
Last year's mailbox was red and rusty and had to be replaced.
In the spring we bought a new one and I painted it grey and added a sentimental touch.
This year, for Christmas, I wanted it to be white....so, I wrapped it with two, plastic, table covers from the dollar store.
I cut each one, in half, length wise and started with a knot tied like this.
With the length I began to wrap it over and under
and tucked it in
each time it came to an end.
A bit of white, duct tape keeps the next attachment nice and secure.
A little slit makes the flag accessible.
I tied on a large white bow which holds the end of the wrap tightly in place, then finished it with a swag of greens, red poinsettias and a golden sled on top.
Tie wraps hold the sled securely on the top.
A glittered bird in a golden nest sits snuggly inside.
Now, maybe you'll add a little something festive to your mailbox this year!
All of our Christmas decorating is done, so I'll be back soon to share this up-cycled wreath that's on our front door!
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
and Gucci, too!
Can you see him? He's playing "peek-a-boo!
I LOVE your sweet comments, but my reply's won't always get to you.
