As promised, I’m back with a tour of my Christmas front porch. It still hasn’t stopped raining, in fact tomorrow we are expecting to have the biggest storm we’ve had in 6 years! However the rain went to a slow drizzle this afternoon so I ran out to take some pictures!
I love every single thing on the porch, from the tree, to the sled, to the pops of red, it’s my favorite Christmas porch I’ve ever done. I can’t take credit for all of it though because I had some help.
The beautiful Noble Fir tree was given to me by my Mother-in-Law. She ordered an extra tree this year so she let me have this one.
It’s so pretty, seriously, if it weren’t raining so much I’d probably get a chair and go sit on my walkway and just stare at it. It’s a perfect tree.
And this sled and ice skates, amazing. These are actually my friend’s dad’s from when he was a kid. She thought they’d look perfect on my porch so she let me borrow them. It’s that amazing!? I think they are perfect and every time I see them it makes me wish for snow…
Speaking of snow, did you notice the snowflakes?
It’s “snowing” on our front porch. You can’t tell in the picture but they actually shimmer in the light, it’s magical. 🙂
My (same) friend also helped me make these awesome hanging ornaments.
She took apart cheap greenery from Michael’s and then glued them on these metal screw clamps, from Home Depot, to make these incredible ornaments. She’s so talented!
One of these days I’ll get around to posting a tutorial. 🙂
I also love this sign I made on my chalkboard. I had some left over gold vinyl from when I did the polka dot wall in Malea’s room so I cut out this little Christmas quote.
And nothing like some $5 poinsettias from Target to add some color to the porch!
It was hard to get a picture of the lanterns, since they were soaking wet but I went really simple in them with some pinecones and candles in a couple of them.
We’re almost done in the rain, just a couple more pictures. 🙂
That’s the end of the front porch tour, let’s get out of the rain and go enjoy some warm cider. What’s your favorite thing on the front porch this year?
