Decorating your porch for the holidays is a fun way to bring your decor style outdoors…and it helps to create a warm and welcoming entrance to your home. This year since my Christmas decor inside is more neutral and rustic, and my front door is a bright color- I went with a similar look for my porch decor. I really like how it turned out, and with its more neutral/winter wonderland feel, I may just leave it up past Christmas! Don’t judge me… 🙂
Most of these pieces I already had, so it was just a matter of setting things up how I had seen it in my head. The lovely flocked trees I found at Wal-Mart. They are 3 and 4 foot trees and only $12 and $18 dollars each!!! They also come with the base already wrapped in burlap- so cute!
I knew I wanted to add some texture with birch logs- but they can be hard to find and pricey. So I googled it and found out that my local Home Depot has cut birch logs -12 pieces in a bag for $8.96. Sold!!
These fun glass gallon jugs, I got from a friends mom who was cleaning out her garage. She called me up and was like “my mom’s getting rid of these glass jars and I thought of you!” Sometimes it pays for people to know you are a hoarder of crafty/decor type things.
This wreath I found at JoAnns last Christmas, but didn’t end up using. This year I wrapped some burlap around the top of the wreath and tied a bow so it could hang on my front door. It’s really simple, but I love the smaller size and all the texture it has, with the pine cones and burlap!
The wooden crates are from JoAnns- but you can find them lots of places. I just stained and aged the crates, so they would look used/worn.
So there you have it! Not super fancy, but I love the way it looks and how it sets the tone for our home, before you even step through the door. Although to be perfectly honest with you- today all the SNOW covering my porch sets a slightly chiller tone than it did last week, when I took these pictures 🙂
Stay warm out there friends!!
