PRESENT TOPIARY TO DECORATE YOUR PORCH AND FRONT DOOR!

   This comes from www.thatvillagehouse.blogspot.com .  I made something similar a couple years ago, without the pots.  It was about 6 feet high.  I got the inspiration from a Chirstmas dectoration that we bought at Target. This is a very good idea and make a great enterance to your home.  So here's a little something to thing about for next year.  Before you know it December will be here again.  You could also do something like this for an Easter theme.   Enjoy! A Merry Welcome! So here is my first Christmas project for the year!! I saw something similar at our church's Advent celebration & pretty much straight up copied it. I couldn't help it. It was love at first sight! I plan to make a 2nd stack to go on the other side of my door, so I'm not completely done, but I thought I would share it with you anyway. I started with 3 different sized boxes...9, 12 & 14 inch cubes. I used an ice pick to punch holes in each of them so that I could run

FREE DOWNLOAD OF SANTA STATIONARY!!

How would your kids like a letter from Santa Claus this year? I've designed a simple template for Santa letterhead that can help you make the magic happen. Some ways you could put it to use: Your  Elf On The Shelf  could bring a letter back from his nightly trip to the North Pole. Use as a little extra convincing for curious little ones asking a few too many questions. Include a special note from the big man in your advent calendar. Use as a thank-you note for the milk and cookies on Christmas Eve. Tuck inside your favorite holiday book encouraging kids to go to bed. Attach to one of those "too big to wrap" gifts as a gift tag. Use as a gift certificate for grown-up gifts, like a special date for your husband or an outing with a friend.  DOWNLOAD | Grab the PDF file  here   or the JPEG  here . Print on any color paper. (I used a nice textured cardstock). Do your best at some jolly handwriting and you're done! I wouldn't stress about mailing
