Mary from Orphans With MakeUp created some quick and beautiful last-minute holiday decor for her porch with Devotion and Chocolate Tart!

Hi! It’s Mary from Orphans With Makeup. Today I am sharing two last minute small Christmas decor projects painted in “Devotion”. Both took just a little over an hour each to complete but add so much punch to my front porch Christmas decor.

I had this old pair of vintage skis and thought it would be fun to paint them a bright red color. I painted two coats of Devotion and Chocolate Tart where the bindings went.

Here they are standing on my front porch.

The other project I made was a J-O-Y sign. I simply painted these wood letters in Devotion and glued them to a piece of scrap wood that I distressed and stained.

I was undecided where to put the skis. They look just as great indoors too. Adds just a little bit of red to a mainly blue and grey decor for Christmas.
