Step 1 - get a box or make a box - I got mine at the At Home store on sale as it is a summer box
Step 2 - put filler in your box. I used straw and pinecones
Step 3 - stuff fall picks and flowers in between the pinecones - I bought my picks on sale at Hobby Lobby and the flowers are from the dollar store...yep dollar store. I bought 3 sets, 2 are the same and the third set I cut the stems off the bunch and placed them in individually
Step 4 get a ribbon, tie it around your box handles then hang your box!
If you don't have a box with handles you could drill holes in the back or sides and loop the ribbon through.
1. It would be cute if you painted your box and put your house numbers on the front... I may still do that.
2. Your box could be hung by an end, but if you do that I'd glue your items into it otherwise they may fall out easily.
It looks great on my front porch and is a welcome for all my guests who come to visit in September!
Thanks for stopping by. I truly appreciate it.
Next week I'll be sharing some of my thoughts for Halloween decorating. I'm also participating in a Halloween Instagram Swap! I can't wait until my new friend gets her box and I'm excited to see what she got me to help me decorate for Halloween! More details on that to come!!
In the meantime please follow me on Instagram @Vicdenni
I'm also on FB but due to the nature of FB I only post when I've blogged - so every Tuesday I post to FB. If you interact with the page or request it in your newsfeed you'll be sure to get my updates.
I'm also on Pintrest and have been busily pinning Halloween ideas.
You can also follow me right here by signing up on the blog.
Again, thanks for stopping by. I hope you try the box for your front door and I'd love to see how everyone decorates their doors for September.
PS - did I share how big my Dahlia's are this year? CRAZY! They are blooming late this year for some reason but they are crazy big. I LOVE this one because it looks like velvet and it is standing over 5 feet tall! I've never had one grow this tall before. The rest are pink, purple, orange and yellow and aren't this tall nor do they look like velvet.
