I love using bits and pieces of greens from the trees in my yard to create outside Christmas arrangements.... and..... what would an arrangement be without a little bit of junk?

You've got the style girl!

Lani, I use rub-ons on everything as I have a very unsteady hand when it comes to painting (although I am anxious to try that paint pen you used)........scrapbooking stores and Michaels are a great source for them. Once they 'set' they seem to stay on even outdoors (but do wash off in the dishwasher).

Beautiful and fun display!
