Trimmings Transformed

Decorating for Christmas makes me downright giddy.  Anyone else feel me on this? It takes every ounce of willpower for me to wait until after Thanksgiving, which is a personal rule of mine.  Full disclosure: I started decorating at approximately 7:00 PM on Thanksgiving night.  Close enough right?

Black Friday our only purchase was our Christmas tree (more on that later) but while we were there I asked for some extra tree trimmings and the guys happily obliged.  In fact, they said we could have a whole truckload, but we politely declined and just took a few branches.

We have an antique milk jug that sits in front of our house.  Usually I fill it will seasonal potted flowers and it ends up in the garage over the winter, this year I decided to make use of it with those extra trimmings.  The best part about this little project…FREE.  Aside from the tree trimmings given to us, I had everything else on hand.
