I needed something festive to decorate my mudroom. I wanted to keep it natural, and low cost. Hey, my mudroom's a real mudroom, muddy, and full of shoes, coats, wood, and mud.
This ain't your Pinterest mudroom baby.
I started with a $5 wreath from Home Depot.
A candle in the window.
I had a long wooden box that I had bought for $4 awhile ago. The box has 3 separations.
While I was buying my Christmas tree at our local fire station, I asked if I could have some of the ends they cut from the bottom of the trees. I placed these tree stumps in the box. I had a small string of lights that I placed in the box. Next I went into the yard and cut some greens. I inserted the greens around the stumps. Then I added a few pinecones.
This display cost me nothing!
I removed the red bow that came on the wreath, and added a brown poinsettia and rustic ornament.
I cut some extra greens to use above the coat rack. I added the stars (I already had).
Total cost for this room - $5. With all the rustic charm I was looking for!
