Farmhouse Christmas decorations are a must-have for anyone who loves that style of decor. But, finding the right Christmas porch decor in that style can be a challenge. No worries though- I’ve got you covered! Here are some of my favorite farmhouse front porch Christmas decorations.
Y’all it’s time to deck the halls! And, while you’re at it, let’s add some front porch Christmas decorations to your home.
Halloween has passed and everywhere you look the Christmas spirit is taking over. I, for one, am not ready to put up my tree quite yet (but I’m close!). However, there’s nothing wrong with adding some Christmas spirit on the front porch before you decorate the rest of the house.
So, to get some ideas this year, I took a shopping trip to my local Old Time Pottery. Inspiration flowed as I came up with a ton of things for my front porch Christmas decor that you are going to love. If you’re searching for some front porch Christmas ideas, this list has you covered.
Before you go put up the tree, decorate the mantel, or take care of any other holiday decor items, get your game plan together for your front porch Christmas decorations. It’ll be easier than you think!
Ready to see what I found?
Things I Needed For Front Porch Christmas Decorations
I started off with a list of things to make the perfect decorated front porch. Here is a brief list of what I included in my decorations to help inspire your own porch decor this holiday season.
- Wreath hanger
- Large and small decor pieces
Now, let’s take a look at each of those pieces and how they came together to make the perfect farmhouse Christmas front door. Where to start? With the doormat of course!
For me, it is the first thing that welcomes people to your home. I found this classic design with the truck and tree and knew that I had to have it!
Next, I had to decide on a wreath. The wreath really sets the mood for the rest of the pieces. The selection at Old Time Pottery was HUGE but I fell in love with this pinecone wreath.
It is rustic so I went with that feeling for my entire front door. I mean- look at those pinecones! Gorgeous!
Include Signs With Your Front Porch Christmas Decorations
Outdoor holiday decor just isn’t complete without a sign or two. In this design, I went with two signs – a larger one and a smaller one.
First, I wanted a really large sign for this area to welcome guests as they pull up. It needed to add to the rustic charm of the entire scene so it would work with that wreath.
This large shutter was perfect! Just look at the slightly rusty metal lettering. Now, my front porch Christmas decorations were well on their way!
Next, I wanted a smaller sign to complement the larger one and help balance out the entire design.
The opposite side of the door got a cute wood Santa that I just couldn’t pass up.
isn’t he delightfully rustic and perfect for the outdoors?
Some people hang evergreen wreaths. Since I went with the pinecone design this time, I needed to add in an evergreen element or two.
For both large and small decorations, be sure to look at the mini trees. They are inexpensive and can make a big impact!
I took one of the larger ones and put it inside that galvanized bucket for even more rustic metal touches in this scene. I love it!
The faux cranberries add that lovely contrasting pop of color to these front porch Christmas decorations.
Letters To Santa Mailbox
Every child will love that you have a mailbox for Santa on your front porch. This one from Old Time Pottery is the perfect addition to any Christmas scene whether it is rustic or not.
Garland & Plaid Poinsettias
Finally, I needed some garland and floral touches. My inspiration for that came from these plaid poinsettias in the floral department. I grabbed a bunch of those and attached them to my extra long garland.
Then, just put a garland of plain greenery around the door. Tie on the poinsettias and some red berries and you have the perfect Christmas look for your space!
Holiday Decor Tip:
One tip that I have hardly ever seen anyone do is to get a longer garland than you need and let it pool on the ground at both ends. This will add a little interest to your scenes on both sides for very little money.
Here are a few questions we get about this project. If you have a question but don’t see it down below, please leave it in the comments so I can answer it for you.
How can I add front porch Christmas decorations to my small porch?
The great thing about holiday decor is that you don’t need much to deck out a small area with holiday cheer. All you need are some greenery pieces, a wreath, a doormat, and maybe a sign. Trust me, when it comes to decorations and small spaces, a little can go a very long way.
I don’t see a wreath I like. Can I make one?
Definitely! Making wreaths is a fun way to get exactly what you want! It’s also usually a really fun thing to make. You can do a more traditional evergreen design, or go with a fun Glittered Christmas Wreath.
Or, if you really want something festive and less traditional, make this cute DIY Candy Cane Wreath!
