Hi. I'm Colleen Mullaney for And you know, I love to decorate my porch. And besides the roping and the wreathes, I love to create little areas that really welcome guests. And I found this great sled. It's a grapevine sled and I thought I would fill it with greens and a couple of my mercury balls. So, let's get started. And you know I'm going to stick this by the front door. It's a great welcoming feature for friends during the holidays. And it's so much fun. And the kids just love the porch. There we go. And I like to use all different kinds of greens. Greens that I've collected from around my house, from this local nursery. This is great. I love this. This is ivy and these are the ivy berries that come out in the fall and the winter. They're so beautiful and interesting. Let's add some of those in there. Some magnolia leaves that I've gotten form a neighbor of mine. And stick all this in here. Now, you want to start want to make sure that you put the smaller greens and the shorter greens in the front, and just kind of layer it and have the longer greens in the back. Some of them can stick out like that. That's great. And don't forget your boxwood. Boxwood is a traditional holiday green. There you go. Put that magnolia right there. OK. And porches are also, you know they're an extension of your house. It's really nice to decorate them for the holidays. Just little bits of greenery can just add so much charm. Put the ivy there. Oh, that's gorgeous. Now, for the finishing touch, I'm going to put my mercury balls in my sled as a decorative accent. Now, to do that, I'm just going to.. they're quite heavy so I'm just going to really just kind of snug them in between the greens. There we go. And they look like really beautiful ornaments. There we go. Stick that one in the front because he's a smaller one. And, you know what. I'm going to leave the big red one right on the porch. And I'm going to grab.. there we go, just like that. So, it kind of looks like the sled is overflowing with the ornaments. And I'll just stick a couple of green ones in the back for extra color. There we go. That's fantastic. This is a great seasonal accent for your porch. Thanks for watching. I'm Colleen Mullaney.
