Christmas Front Door

I shared with you yesterday my idea for a front door Christmas decoration.
It took me less than 30 minutes to create our front door Christmas wreath alternative.  
After I trimmed the branches I tied them together with a zip tie.
I bought this package of ties at Dollar Tree.
Hubby & I made a trip to Dollar General last night to buy more lights for our Christmas trees.  
I was so happy to find these awesome bells for $2.50.  Perfect for my project!
I slipped the ring around the top of the branches.
The last step was to tie on the burlap bow.  I bent the ring so adding the bow would be easier.
I decided not to add faux berries.  I may change my mind about that later.
A door wreath alternative.
'Christmas Bling 2013'  is slowly happening around our house.

Brilliant!
Your swag turned out so adorable, and I think it would look cute, not only throughout December, but for January too.

Warm wishes.
