        thanks for your posts Carl, Dave, and Ray.

        Getting ready to decorate that doorway I knew I needed several small items. Here I mixed up

        some red Sculpey III with some white to get a pink that matched the photo and made a bunch

        of roses. Once they were baked hard I drilled a hole in each base and glued in pieces of

        floral green wire to represent the stems.



        I won't need these until much later in the project but since I had all the Sculpy out on

        the workbench I made the four pink Pointsettiers to go in the urns beside the steps.



        I also gathered up some pearlized round beads and painted some two sizes of round beads an

        antique gold. These will be the ball decorations. I made a couple of large tassels

        from Sculpy and also painted them gold. I found some nice ribbon 1/8 inch wide (hard to

        find) which works out to ribbon a scale 3 inches wide, just right. I also picked out

        some model green branches.

            Bob, sorry to read about your computer problems.

            Your completed walls sitting on the front porch look wonderful!

            As do the red roses & poinsettias, I knew they would pose no problems for you.

              Bob, Computer hiccups also caught mine while updating its operating system and I missed the chance to vote on Christmas decorations for your cottage.

              A couple ideas for removable decorations:

              Use hot glue to decorate a wreath on top of a thin steel “O” cut from a tin can lid and mount magnets inside the door to hold the wreath to the outside of the door.

              If you make the garlands for around the door frame out of green pipe cleaners and add extra greenery and other christmasy bits to bulk them out, the magnets inside the door should also be able to hold the garlands up too.

              The garlands on the railings seem like they can be carefully wrapped to stay in place and unwrapped to remove.

              OOPS! you have already begun the decoration preparation

                        • Greg, Mike, Carl, and Kevin, thanks for your posts, much appreciated.

                          The posts are all in place now and I will have to start fitting all that gingerbread

                          between them, top and bottom. I suspect this is going to take a while.
