If you are looking to add farmhouse style to your front porch this Christmas, then you are in the right place. I am sharing easy ways to add festive decor to your porch during this holiday season. Mixing what you already have plus some new pieces will surely create a welcoming porch to all your guests who come over this Christmas.

A Festive Farmhouse Christmas Porch

Our front porch is always fun to decorate, and especially at Christmas time! I knew that we already had some pieces on hand I could incorporate but wanted to add a few new pieces as well. For the new, I found everything I needed at JOANN. They had a huge selection of trees, greenery (garland and wreaths), and signs for our Christmas porch.


It was so hard to narrow my choices down because I loved it all! In the end, I was able to make my choices based on the idea that I wanted it to feel festive, and I wanted pieces in line with modern farmhouse style. I can’t wait to share with you what I found and how I made it all come together with pieces I already owned to create my warm and cozy Christmas entryway for 2019.


I knew I wanted to put an artificial tree in our white planter that my husband built. JOANN had this Nearly Natural 3′ Christmas Tree with Berries and Lights one and it was the perfect height! I simply added a fun red and black check bow (these are similar in look but smaller) with a long ribbon, and it was complete. Leaning next to the planter an adorable reversible sign (this is a wonderful horizontal sign option)! Welcome is always the word that creates a warm feeling as your approach any front door.


Next, I added two bright twinkle trees that are also prelit, in two different sizes (for another option that is also shorter, check these out). Creating various height is always a good idea when creating vignettes. These twinkle trees help spread the splashes of red with the otherwise neutral palette. This helps create that festive feel I love this year!


Cozying up the bench is easy to do by adding a few pillows. I loved adding this cute “Seasons Greetings” pillow from JOANN (similiar one here). It mimics the look of grain sacks, which is perfect for the farmhouse look. The other pillows I already had on hand.


JOANN had these darling Handmade Holiday Christmas LED Metal House Lanterns that I also used inside our home. They have battery-powered candles and create a lovely glow at night. I love having all the twinkle lights on the trees and battery-powered candles for a cozy look.


I could not have been more excited to have found this Handmade Holiday Christmas Tabletop Decor-Green Letters to Santa to hang by our front door (this is a great alternative). In fact, our son has already placed his letter in there! I added some flocked greenery and berries (found here ) to complete the festive look and help hide the nail. On the front door, I added more splashes of red with a berry wreath (similiar one here). I love it’s simplicity and farmhouse style look.


I also included one of our milk crate planters that I shared all about here. It is filled with both real and faux greenery. Leaning behind it is a sled that I already had on hand. You can find these at antique stores. I could not be more excited about how it all came together! What do you think?
