I may get some grief for decorating my front porch so early for the holidays but it is so nice to be able to decorate in comfortable weather and also when the soil is still not frozen so I can stick things into the planters! Here is the how to for creating my holiday front porch look!

This year I decided to go for the real thing and hang real pine garland from Trader Joe’s over the doorway. I wrapped the garland in lights and then used two Command removable hooks in the corners of the doorway to hang the garland. On the front of the door I always keep my letter boxwood wreath hanging but switch out the ribbons by season.
Was able to reuse my layered rug look from fall creating an inviting holiday entrance. The bottom rug is a gorgeous black and white buffalo checked rug with a home sweet home rug layered on top. I was also able to reuse my galvanized buckets from fall. I kept the dirt in and used real evergreen branches, wood branches, and holiday berry branches from Trader Joes. I also added in some pinecones to provide some added texture.
Was able to use what I already added in for fall, the branches and eucalyptus. In addition to the fall foliage I added real evergreen branches from Trader Joes. I also added in some pinecones to provide some added texture. I think I might get some more holiday berries from Trader Joes to give it a little more color.
For the large green planters on either side of the steps I kept the dirt in and used real evergreen branches, wood branches, and holiday berry branches from Trader Joes. I also added in some pinecones to provide some added texture.
For the porch garland I used inexpensive faux garland and then attached real evergreen branches from Trader Joes with floral wire. This is a great way to create thick, gorgeous, realistic looking garland inexpensively.
Today is a great day to get out there and update the porch for the holidays! Was able to reuse a lot of elements from my fall front porch: black and white buffalo checked rug ,home sweet home rug,galvanized buckets, and letter boxwood wreath to save money. Just added inexpensive fresh Christmas elements such as real evergreen, pinecones, and holiday berries from Trader Joes to create a gorgeous holiday look.
