Decorating the Front Bench

Decorating The Front Bench,

I realized after I had posted the font walkway  HERE  that I had not finished my bench.

So I picked up some BC pine roping  for $14.99 and started to decorate.
I swagged the roping across the back of the bench and down the sides.
I had purchased this cute sleigh for only $3.00 so I thought I could incorporate it
into the bench. I also purchased this cute box at the Dollar store and wrapped it in clear
plastic so that the weather would not deteriorate the box.
I also picked up my gold stars at the dollar store. Added some leftover pine from my urn and
made a huge bow with red poly mesh. Gotta love that Dollar store.
As you can see here I have placed 2 of my moss balls that I had made. TUTORIAL HERE.
I added a red willow ball and there you have it.

My decorated bench. Already to welcome my guests.
I had added this cute little fellow to beside the front lantern.

Now we are set for the front viewing.
