If you have an outdoor space you love, cold weather can make you want to stay inside instead of enjoying it. Here I’m sharing my Christmas porch decorations and how you can add some warmth to your outdoor Christmas home decor!
When we first saw this house and I opened up the front door, I could see straight to the back porch and saw a swing. That was it. I didn’t need to see anything else. This was our house.
I’ve always loved a back porch, and to have it screened in was even better. That means I could be outside in the spring and summer without getting eaten alive by mosquitos.
And for this holiday season, ya girl was gonna decorate it.
I didn’t want to just put a bunch of wreaths and garlands out here or stick some candy canes in a glass dish and call it done. But I couldn’t figure out what exactly I even wanted.
When you think porch and outdoor spaces, you typically think spring or summer, warm weather and bright colors.
For colder months, I wanted to find the best way to add warmth to the space. I feel like I actually accomplished that after 2,383,890,435 trips to Home Goods, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Dollar Tree. Ta da!
I’ll take you on a little tour of this space, but I gotta say, I am IN LOVE with it.
I’ll have links to all sources that I can!

Our fun little doormat is from Target. I liked it because it was neutral and since I wasn’t sure the color scheme I wanted at the time, I figured grey, gold and white would be neutral enough.
Walking straight out the door is this gorgeous flocked Christmas tree from At Home. I got it when it was on flash sale for half off. SCORE!
Then of course, the view of my favorite part of this porch – the swing.
And those faux fur pillows? WALMART GUYS! I couldn’t believe it! Not only that, the fur matched perfectly with the pillows on our outdoor conversation set.
See what I mean with those faux fur trimmed pillows? Saw those at At Home too when I went to pick up the tree and they just screamed cozy outdoors to me.
I love adding elements of real greenery, even though I’m terrible at keeping things alive.
These plants on our side tables are actually rosemary!
Jordan found them at Home Depot and I told him to snag me some ASAP. Plus they smell really great.
This may sound strange, but this is absolutely my favorite part of this whole porch. I don’t even know why.
Maybe because that great idea of rosemary plants was an accident? Who knows?
I made those little yarn balls with a styrofoam ball from the Dollar Tree, some yarn from Michaels, and hot glue. I love how they turned out.
The 2 wreaths on the smaller windows are from Walmart that I got last year that I think were around $10 a piece.
The one in the middle is from TJ Maxx.
The painting is from Kirkland’s and we got it last year, but it looks like it’s available again this year as well!
Even though we don’t have a fire pit out here and nothing to keep you warm except blankets, I always feel like wood in a bucket makes you think about a fire.
And fire equals WARM! It’s all about brain tricks when you’re outside in the cold.
I stuck some real greenery in the bucket along with the wood and strung some lights in there to add some extra lighting at night time.
I also loved the little touch of adding the tree collar from Hearth and Hand and the JOY letters that I got after Christmas at Michaels last year.
Of course you don’t have to have your outdoor Christmas decorations just like this, but hopefully it will just give you some Christmas porch decorating ideas to start off with!
If you need me the rest of the season, I’ll be out here (until I feel like I’m about to get frostbitten).
