I am posting links to 2 articles by DIY Network on outside Christmas lighting:
Outdoor Christmas Lighting Tips can be found HERE.
Buyers' Guide For Outdoor Christmas Lighting can be found HERE.
I hope you will be inspired so you can make your outside look as beautiful as the inside of your Christmas house.
Next on the list is a craft I promised but never delivered. I realize that I was a major slow poke with my 3 lbs of acorns wreath craft! I didn't get it finished until the evening before going out of town for Thanksgiving and although it's a fall/Thanksgiving craft, I'm going to post a picture anyhow.
I do have to say that I didn't treat the acorns in anyway, just wiped them clean and glued on. I threw out all the ones with holes or chewed up bottoms and used only the whole ones.
Next year I'm going to fill some of the holes between the acorns with small gold beads just to give my wreath a touch of sparkle.
PS. Notice how much better the pictures look? It's because we finally have a new camera! YAY!
