I shared the “secrets” of my front door and you all know that I am in the process of deciding it’s transformation….but I didn’t really give you a good look at the topiaries next to the door. I transformed them into fun and easy Christmas topiaries but you HAVE to see where they started.
Don’t hate on me.
The sun is BRUTAL on the front of the house. That is why the door gets so damaged…it also dry rotted the topiaries this year.
You can’t see them can you?
I am so ashamed…..you are going to think that I am trashy with my front door issues.
I have wired them…re-shaped…..but they literally crumble when you touch them now.
I know….they are bad.
I never really liked the color of the pot either.
So, this past weekend I started some of my Christmas decorating and decided to come up with something new.
I yanked them out…….and threw them in the yard.
It felt good………
Want to see the difference with a little bit of spray paint?
Dang…..they were bad.
I had a ton of these $1.00 clearance poinsettias from a couple of years ago.
They are the really cheap kind. The ones with the foil base……
I pulled the puny looking ones out of the vase and plopped them in the urns.
Want to see?
Pops, doesn’t it?
It was bare at the bottom so I pulled some magnolia branches off our tree and placed those around the base of the poinsettia’s.
When I first put the poinsettia’s in the urn…it looked too bare….so I grabbed a second one and just stuck it in the middle and it filled it up beautifully.
Remember the before?
Major difference isn’t it?
I can’t show you how I decorated my door yet.
That is going to be a surprise.
It will also be coming down soon for my door re-do but I wanted to get it up for now at least.
This transformation was achieved with items I already had.
Would this work for your front door?
You could just paint a flower pot black…..pop in some cheap poinsettia’s…..real greenery…..
And Wah Lah.
I’m so pleased!
Fresh and sooooo bright!
Christmas topiaries to be proud of!
Can’t be hating on me now….. ; )
What are your thoughts?
Do you like the transformation?
