I absolutely LOVE what you’ve done, and the Rustic Glam theme is amazing. I wish I was a good decorator! I just throw stuff around the house and it looks like Christmas threw up on my house. I want to be better! Teach me your ways! #client
Thanks Summer! Well, it was super easy to create with Big Lots Holiday items. Holly
This is beautiful, Holly! I love the idea of having the vintage ladder outside to hold lots of fun Christmas decor. I want all of this! #client
Thanks Brandie! I actaully found that ladder at Amber’s Umbrella! Holly
Love this look.
Thanks so much Karen! Holly
I know that this is an old post, but could you possibly tell me how tall your ladder is? I have been trying to find one this size for a wedding prop.
I love my ladder! I found it at a vintage store. It’s about 4 feet tall and I decorate it for all seasons. I’ve even been offered money for it and there is no way that’s happening..lol. Good luck with finding one- Holly

Rustic Glam is my Christmas theme this year and I incorporated some DIY Rustic Glam Pine Cones in to my porch decor that adds just the perfect little detail too. I’m all about the small details. Like OCD small details. I’m participating in Big Lots National Decorate Your Home for the Holidays by decorating an area in my home with beautiful, high quality decor all found at my local Big Lots. Sounds pretty fun, huh?
I actually went in to Big Lots to check out the Halloween clearance and left with a whole cart load of Christmas decorations. True Story. Big Lots definitely hooked me up with the Rustic Glam Christmas decor that I am going for this year.
I’ve always been a fan of Big Lots. When I used to work full time, our office had a desk decorating competition and since Big Lots was just down the street from where I worked, it wasn’t uncommon for my co-workers and me to hit up Big Lots on our lunch break. Who needs to eat anyways? I could always count on finding unique items there. One year, I decorated my whole cubicle in dog theme items found at Big Lots. #truth
I keep a vintage ladder on my front porch so styling my front porch was easy to do since Big Lots has everything you need for inside and outside your home. I added pretty gold and burlap ribbons and decorative greenery sticks in to the 18\u2033 pre-lit Christmas Tree, draped a garland around the ladder, used sleigh ornaments as decorative pieces and just added batteries inside the a marquee star and lantern.
This is a little early for me to be decorating for Christmas but I love the idea of planning ahead for the holiday season and decorating earlier means less stress and more time for the other things. Like more shopping! I’m all about less stress and less last minute.
I brought in a few more DIY details in to my Rustic Glam front porch by making DIY Metallic Gold and Glitter Pine Cones. Talk about an easy craft. I remember making glitter pine cones as a kid. Of course, I’d use like a whole bottle of Elmer’s Glue along with a whole bottle of rainbow glitter which made one big, goopy pine cone mess. My mom was like, “For me? Yay!” Probably thinking this hot mess will never dry.
This time around, I lightly brushed the Pine Cones with Mod Podge then sprinkled them with gold glitter or sprayed painted them with metallic gold paint. There is an important tip before decorating pine cones. Bake Them! Yes, like in the oven ’cause you don’t want any bugs . Bake at 200 degrees for around 45 minutes or until you smell them cooking works too.
Big Lots carries high-quality, seasonal decor for both inside and outside the home where you definitely won’t sacrifice quality for price. Aren’t these Sleigh Ornaments the cutest? They look great displayed on my ladder too.
My original plan was to create a DIY painted Christmas sign to add to my rustic front porch decor but when I saw this chalkboard sign at Big Lots, I was like, hello, my life just got easier! Well more like, life just got Merry & Bright! Why re-create the wheel when Big Lots keeps holiday decorating simple.
As you can tell, I am a big fan of a welcoming porch so a Welcome Mat is a must. There were so may to choose from but I went with red. Can’t ever go wrong with red during Christmas.
This vintage ladder I keep on my porch is one of my favorite pieces I’ve collected over the years. It such a unique way to display Holiday Decor too.
Doesn’t; this Marquee Star look great displayed next to the Rustic Glam Pine Cones too?
As you can see, the incredible selection Big Lots offers in seasonal decorations and holiday home decor. I do love shopping for Holiday decor but I’m also glad that I stopped by Big Lots before I hit up other retailers.
I love these DIY Rustic Glam Pine Cone and they bring back a great childhood memory too. That’s also what the Holidays are about, memories.
