This year is our first real Christmas in our little cottage. Two years ago we were just moving in and last year we spent Christmas in Queensland with our families. It's such a lovely time to be able to decorate and add a little bit of magic to our home and I wanted to create something that really represented our passion for sustainable living and all things handmade and local. After a few weeks in the making, I'm so excited to share our Christmas porch.
The feature of the porch is our handmade Christmas tree, made from salvaged floor boards and left over house paint. It is decorated with solar fairy lights, a festive lantern as the star, recycled paper decorations from Polli and lolly bags from Poppies for Grace, both from Fine and Sunny.
I hand dyed a yellow cushion to throw on the couch, added a couple of Dream Catcher vases and some beautiful flowers from the local Farmers Market.
Above the Christmas tree are some handmade decorations.. A star garland (stay tuned for the DIY), and a stand of fun pom poms.
As the sun goes down and the solar fairy lights begin to twinkle, it's the perfect place to spend a festive summer.
