Countdown to Christmas Eve: Festive Curb Appeal!

Happy Wednesday Friends! Can you believe we are now 3 Wednesdays until Christmas Eve?! It really is my favorite time of year and I enjoy adding festive touches outdoors as well.  Today I am sharing some simple thrifty ways to add Christmas curb appeal...

Thrifty festive curb appeal

Cheerful poinsettias give a warm welcome to guests when they come to the door and their vibrant shade is visible from the street! Winter is the perfect time to repurpose birdbaths and fountains as flower containers. Pssst...Lowe's has the smaller poinsettias for .99 this week! 

Repurpose fountains for poinsettias

I have several of these fabulous sculptures from Mexico that are displayed in my garden year round. Each is a different instrument and I found them 75% off at my favorite thrift store.  During the Christmas season, I simply tie on a red ribbon--it doesn't get any easier than that!

A bare fence can be the perfect backdrop for a festive vignette--the mitten garland and ice skate are both thrift store finds! (The ice skate did require a makeover--come back next week to see it before.)

Here's a peek at the skate's mate and more red ribbon--this time on my yard sale milk can. I buy red jute from Michael's when it's 50% off.

It wouldn't be Christmas without a little whimsy...Juliet is all decked out in her holiday attire!
