Chalk Drawing for my living room! Thrifty wood find for $3 + DIY chalk board paint


I love to drive around with my kids and look at the Christmas lights this time of year. Living in a little town makes it easy to drive by all the beaming neighborhoods in like 20 min. I also love decorating my home for Christmas! I like being resourceful and using the reds and greens from outside to bring my indoor Christmas vibe alive!

As you may already know, POPPY RED has been my color since, well, this whole year. It should come as no surprise that I have spotted red berries growing on some thorn bushes on the long road to my house. For the past 3 weeks I have been scouting out my attack on those berries! Finally, this week, I just pulled over in my truck, blared some Christmas music, jumped the barb wire and trimmed away!
And I’ve put them everywhere!
I snipped this from the fields beside our home. It is filled with thorns, but the red berries are so beautiful
