I left town for the entire month of December but didn't want my house to look totally deserted for fear of getting robbed. I strung a couple of strands of Christmas lights on the porch and threw together this wreath in thirty mintues to hang on the door. I had a wire frame on hand, some wide mesh ribbon and a few picks. I looped the mesh, wired it on and hung it on the door. I'd like to add more to it next year but for this year, when no one came over, it worked. And I didn't get robbed. Mission accomplished!
