Seasonal Mailbox Decor

I was so excited to move into our new home a few years ago for many reasons not the least of which was where our mailbox was located and that in our neighborhood it seemed to be a *thing* to decorate on and around mailboxes. YaY!!   Of course this idea fell right into my wheelhouse so the creative juices started to flow and I started to plan out how I would be changing my mailbox decor as the Season (or in most cases the months) change.  The first thing that I came up with was that I was going to utilize all of my wooden hanging signs that I’d been collecting for over a decade.  I used to hang them on a bracket off of the front porch of our other home.  Here is a link to where you can find the sign bracket.  I do not use the bracket on my mailbox, but you could use it on your front porch, on a fence, or on any number of other places. Here is a picture of the bracket–that is not my sign though..;)

Here is a picture of all of my signs save for the wooden heart that is hanging out on my mailbox right now:

If you’d like to purchase them they can be found at here at PiperClassics.com…

All of the signs come with little chains attached to the top of them so we screwed little hooks into the underneath wooden portion of our mailbox.  This made the signs super easy to change out.

 

 

 

 

You’ll also notice that our mailbox has a trough that juts out of the back; that is a pretty spiffy little addition and it provides me with another receptacle with which to decorate. 🙂

I found this solar mason jar to sit in that trough at Home Depot, gosh it does look pretty in the evening hours.

For a little while, I had two of them sitting in and on the trough…

I’ll now show you how I change out the mailbox decor as we go through the months and seasons of the year. 🙂

Both of these pictures were both taken the very first January that we resided in our new home:

And just the other day, I changed things out for February:IMG_4198

For years and years…actually for decades…when we lived in our other home, our mailbox was located across the street from our house and it was situated immediately next to another mailbox.  Its location didn’t lend itself to festive decorating hence my excitement about being able to decorate this new mailbox.  My hope is that this silly mailbox might provide folks with a warm, welcoming feeling as they enter our driveway; as y’all know, bringing forth a “warm & welcoming” feeling through my decorating is always my goal. 🙂

Until next time, y’all take good care! ❤
