Door / Window Decorations

I decorated our door and the patio door of our room at the Poly. I am not a very creative type of person, so I am looking forward to seeing other peoples pictures so I can do a better job next year. I tell you, having a decorated door / window makes finding your room much easier! Our last name is Giek (pronounced Geek). I figure, if you have a name like that, you have to have fun with it or your life will be miserable. I am also a school teacher so you can imagine the looks I get when parents find out their teacher's name is Mrs. Giek!!

Our patio door. I just bought Hawaiian decorations from the dollar store. Remember, I am not that creative!!!

My window at Pop on our June/July trip.



It celebrated the Fourth of July and the new Toy Story ride. The Potato Heads were there just because we were going to get one of those boxes of parts on this trip.

Part of my daughter's window. There was more, but little Brooklynn had messed up, er.... reorganized their window temporarily, and it wasn't ready for showing at that moment.



You can see that big old red yo-yo in the reflection!

I forgot how many strands, but it looks like it might be one 150 light strand. I used the suction cups that are made for the lights to hold them in the top part of the window.

The wreath was made from 1 large and 2 small wreaths from Dollar Tree. I got some craft wire and just twisted the wreaths together until it looked like Mickey Ears. Then I wrapped it with a white light strand.

Angeleigh's stick people picture....

I also love this! This would be perfect for my family and the stick people are even in the same order as my family also. LOL!! Only thing that would be different is my family is going in 2009.

If you could please share where you got the picture from, I would apperciate it.
