Last weekend I worked outside to decorate the house
and I had some decorations left over.
What was I to do with them?
Duh, of course…DECORATE THE COOP!
I used red tulle left over from my wedding decorations.
Yes I still have wedding decorations from 7 years ago.
I told you can’t throw anything away!
Anyway…I wrapped the pillars with the red tulle.
I then stapled up some stockings.
(Last year the stockings were hung on the shutters on our house)
I had 2 (plastic) candy swags that my mom gave me a couple years ago that I had yet used.
I hung 1 over the door and 1 over the stockings.
THANKS MOM, they worked perfect!
Then used some left over ribbon and
tied a bow to the wreath that was already on the door.
I wrapped a candy bead garland around the cream can full of chicken feed
and tied a red bow on it.
The candy bead garland was also from my mom.
She was cleaning out her Christmas stuff a couple years ago and gave a lot of it to me.
She knew I wouldn’t turn down free decorations (well free anything really).
I did buy 4 things for the coop decorations.
I bought 4 candy canes at Dollar General (1$ each)
TIP WHEN DECORATING OUTSIDE...
Don’t worry about making it perfect.
The wind, sun, dog, cat, rain, snow, etc will mess it up anyway.
So don’t fuss too much.
When I tie bows I just throw them together and scrunch them up.
I literally scrunch them in my hands.
It makes them look more relaxed and they are going to look like that sooner or later anyway.
