Pots and Pine Branches

Of course I am a little late on the whole decoration post but as the saying goes better late than never. 

My little sister gave me some advice a little bit ago….less words, more pictures. 😉 See Luli, I was listening. Okay so let’s get right to it.

Step One: Take an OH SO CUTE picture that has nothing to do with nothing….done and done.

Step Two: Get a pot filled with dirt to weigh it down so it doesn’t topple over if it get’s windy out and also to provide a base for your branches.

Step Three: Create your first layer of pine branches and then pile your Christmas lights on top.

Step Four: Pile more branches over the lights. I wanted to add some Christmas ornaments or bows but love the way this looked so just left it as is.
