Farmhouse Front Porch Christmas Decoration Ideas

Y’all know I’m all about the front porch and Christmas is my favorite time to decorate. So welcome to my Front Porch for Christmas!

Here are my Farmhouse Outdoor & Front Porch Christmas Decoration Ideas for this year.

I simplified the area around our front doors because so much has changed since last year.

First, we added the full door shutters that I shared here.

Then, we made the galvanized inspired planters to go beside the front doors.

Both of these changes added so much to the front porch and called for Christmas Decor Simplification. Y’all know that’s hard for me to do.

Let me know if you think I’ve accomplished it. LOL

Because the new planters are such statement pieces, I decided to fill them with simple bare trees.

I found these great bells at Belk this year and decided they would be perfect hanging from the light fixtures.

Reuse Old Christmas Decorations

Continuing with the bell theme, I added two large bells that I’ve had in my Christmas decoration stash for several years.

In order the create impact, I add them to this red & blue enamel ware antique bowl. I filled in around the bells with pine stems.

More Front Porch Ideas

Another idea was to keep the basics neutral so instead of changing the basic rug from Boutique Rugs, I added a smaller holiday rug on top from Lev Tex Home.

The recycled twig covered tin can, which I made for fall, is workings overtime and holds a mini faux Christmas tree.

More mini trees sit perfectly in the thrift store mini wagon, painted red.

Address sign and door shutters flank the french doors decorated for Christmas.

Keeping everything cozy is easy to do with multiple throw blankets added to all the rockers.

Door Shutters enhance the french doors for Christmas Decoations.

Metal bows that I made several years ago, add a pop of red to the planter arrangement.

The white chippy wooden stool holds another mini tree and candles.

A chippy red container, from a thrifting adventures, serves as a side table along side the rocking chair.

Although we don’t get a lot of snow here in the south, a few snowmen are always welcome.

Farmhouse Outdoor Seating area

In addition to the main entrance, we also have a french doors to the master bedroom from the porch. Here, we created and outdoor seating area, which is full of Christmas decoration ideas.

A thrift store rustic cabinet stands beside the french doors and holds a combination of mostly thrifted clay pots, copper, baskets and vintage ornaments.

A vintage galvanized chicken feeder serves as a tree holder and is wrapped with holiday garland.

A Front Porch Swing

A southern farmhouse wouldn’t be complete without a front porch swing.

I have had these blue cushions for several years and keep thinking I’ll change the color. However, I keep coming back to them in blue and loving the results.

The black and natural rug is back again because it works well with the front door rug and is a great backdrop for the pops of blue and red.

More vintage and thrifted treasures are filled with Christmas decor.

The vintage chip container holds a faux tree, while the thrifted hurricane candle holder is filled with foraged pinecones, berries and a few shiny brites.

A garden cloche covers a rustic birdhouse which sits inside an old cheese box lid with feet added.

The porch swing itself received an update from my friend Jackie at Rod Works of Asheville.

The beautiful snowflake throw, Merry pillow and red truck are just a few of the many Christmas decor items you can find at Jackies shop or online here.

Fun vintage inspired Christmas Decorations enhance the Farmhouse Front Porch vibe.

A mixture of red and blue helps to keep the outdoor seating area fun and festive for the holidays.

Vintage reds and blues decorate the Farmhouse Outdoor seating area.

In order to enhance the swing for the holiday’s, I added a pine and pinecone garland with a string of lights.

When the weather is good, this is a favorite outdoor spot to watch the Christmas lights come on around the house.
