9 Gorgeous Front Porch Christmas Ideas You Should Try This Year

Since we just moved to our vintage farmhouse less than a year ago, I’m still trying to figure out how to decorate here for the holidays.

We’ve got two large covered porches – one in the front and one in the backyard. Plus an additional entry that I’ve been decorating as well.

I’m not totally sure what’s going where or how I’m decorating either of them yet, so I need all of the Christmas inspiration I can get!

My former home had a small stoop for the front entry and my decorating style leaned more rustic farmhouse there.

But here?

I’m moving more towards a vintage farmhouse vibe with some boho touches.

For the last year, we’ve been updating rooms because most of them were pretty dark and full of faux finishes. You can see all of the transformations here:

Aside from renovating rooms, we’ve been really busy shopping and thrifting to furnish the house on a budget too.

Decorating My New Porch

To decorate my front porch on a budget, I plan to cut fresh evergreens from the landscape to make wreaths, hanging baskets, garlands, and outdoor winter planters.

It’s a tall order I know, but my new gardens have an array of evergreen branches that I can use, so I’m going all out this year on homemade porch decor for winter.

If you plan to use fresh greens, learn how to stop the needle drop with my free guide and keep your greens looking fresher longer here.

For outdoor winter planters, I generally make them about two weeks or so before the holidays so they last well into late February.

With other types of Christmas decor like wreaths, garlands, etc., get them done early enough so you don’t stress out but also hold off until the latest you can manage making them.

My method is to work on the inside first with all of my faux winter and Christmas decor and then I move on to the live evergreen DIYs.

I love fresh winter greens but they do dry out so keep that in mind when decorating for the holidays.

And if you are using all faux on the front porch this year?

Then let’s go!

Here are 9 gorgeous front porch Christmas ideas you should try this year.
