Are you looking for ways to perk up your porch for the holiday season? Then give these 7 ways to decorate your porch for the holidays a try. You can make your porch look festive and inviting on a budget, even if you aren’t the most crafty or decorative person. Here is how you can get started!
1. Utilize a sled.
Take an old sled (found at thrift and antique shops) or even a new sled and prop it up on the porch. Hang some fresh greenery from it, or even hook a wooden initial on it. If you feel really crafty, you can even paint it fun and festive colors.
3. Light it up.
If you have an outdoor outlet, plug in some twinkle lights. You can gather the light strand in large baskets or jars, or drape them over an old chair. You can even take the traditional route of hanging them along the roof of the porch.
2. Gather winter sport gear.
Hit up thrift stores and markets for used snow gear such as snow shoes, ski poles, ice skates, and skis. Assemble them in a basket with a large bow or some fresh greenery. This assembly of winter sports gear is a fun way to welcome your guests.
4. Try a mini tree.
Find either a fresh or faux mini tree (about 3 feet in size is great) and deck it out for the holidays. Add twinkle lights, shatter proof ornaments, and other décor items. It is a fun way to celebrate the season and welcome your guests. Plus, it is quite unexpected!
5. Use what nature gives you.
Gather a bunch of pine cones and arrange them in baskets or craft a wreath. You can also make swags and garlands out of fresh pine branches. Use what nature gives you and see how much décor you can create for free.
6. Make a twinkle light tree.
Turn a tomato cage upside down and wrap twinkle lights around it. When you light it up it will look like a miniature tree, all dazzled up for the holidays!
7. Try some candles.
Buy some battery operated candles and place them in large vases, lanterns, or crocks. They will warm up the space and welcome guests with a soft glow.
