Last year I just strung up a few lights, hung some Christmas bunting up and had a wreath on our front door - looked great but I like the idea of having a bit more fun ;)
We have a row of Pencil Pine trees along our driveway so this morning Harris, Milla and I took our big box of 'baubles' out the front and decorated our 'Christmas trees'...
Over the past few months I have been stalking eBay for second hand cheap plastic ball pit balls (the colourful little balls kids play in at IKEA). I ended up with 300 for a bargain! Next step was to attach string to each and everyone of them - a big job that was a little time consuming but not a hard job at all. I just thread thick cotton through them and created a loop with a normal sewing needle. The balls are made of a nice and soft plastic so it's not tricky to do.
There were lots of giggles as we dropped a few and I had to chase them down the street but it only took about half an hour and we were done. What do you think??
Next up is a HUGE wreath I also scored for a bargain on eBay then a few little elf character cutouts to go around the garden... I'll share pics as we go :)
