Season's Greetings! Today I wanted to share my ridiculously inexpensive front door spray. I found the two pieces at a thrift store over the summer. There is a lovely religious second hand store which has a Christmas section all year long and I love to go in there in July and find the most awesome things most people pass over because it is 90 degrees outside! :-)
I found this short sprig of holly for $2.25 and I think it was meant to go over a picture or doorway. Then I found this balled up piece of garland in a bin and when I unfurled it in the store I saw it had a hanger on the top and it was a spray! YAY! $2 cannot be beat!
I LOVE holly! I embellish everything with it. My evergreens, picture sprays, scarves, even my hair. It always looks so festive like an Old Fashioned English Dickensian Classic Christmas.

I put the two together and magic. I love it! And it makes me even happier when I know it was less than $5! I also decided to follow the arch of my front entryway - the first time I have done this. I normally follow directly across the top. I like it.
The sleigh is a work in progress. I added the sleigh bells and I am working on a crest for the back and hope to have it done before Christmas Eve. We all know Santa needs it for his big trip.
