We lost a few trees when the remains of hurricane Sandy blew threw. My husband took this as a sign that he should buy a chain saw. I took it as a sign that I could use some of that wood to create a little fence.
So while he worked on the big logs, I found some smaller branches that were nice and straight. Trying them with twine and standing them in the crate.
I added some natural looking berries and pine branches to my old grape vine wreath and hung it on the fence. Cost at this point about nothing.
I then purchased these four giant Christmas lights from Michaels. 30% off plus an extra 25% off brought the cost to around $13. Using some red netting I bought at Hobby Lobby and other moss, pinecones, and picks I already had, I filled in the box.
I then created this sign from an old sign in my kids clubhouse. Again everything I already had, so no additional costs here. I am very pleased with the end result! It's so fun & unique!
Please look at my baby dog crying in the window. What a goof!
So after 3 days of working outside, it is finally finished (the box didn't take three days, just getting and arranging all the other lights), and guess what?! In true Michigan fashion, it's freezing out again. Yesterday was 60 today is in the 30's and so windy. Hey, at least my box has held it's own in the weather. Can't say the same about the other lawn ornaments. Had to fix them already!
