These Farmhouse-Inspired Christmas Porches Could Be from Fixer Upper

These eight farmhouse-inspired Christmas front porches are perfect examples of how to add some country charm to your home. Each look can be executed anywhere, whether you live in a city, suburb, or rural area.

1. Timeless Classic

To achieve this classic look from Craftberry Bush, break out all of the greenery. Plaid ribbon and scarves give garland and wreaths pops of color. Ornaments can also be wired to the garland to add some visual interest. Tabletop Christmas trees, adorned with red ornaments, fit perfectly into planters. Added accents like lanterns, gift-wrapped boxes, and a basket pull the look together.

2. Neutral Noel

Going for the neutral look? Keep it simple by working with greens and browns, especially if your house is white like Love Grows Wild. Fill wooden planters with tabletop Christmas trees to frame the doorway. For rustic charm, add in some lanterns filled with white candles. A simple green wreath with a burlap ribbon adds a classic touch to the front door.

3. Vintage Touches

You can never go wrong with classic red accents. To follow this inspiration from Attagirl Says, throw in some chippy vintage decorative accents like crates. A vintage sled with some greenery and ice skates is the perfect seasonal accessory for any farmhouse front porch.

4. DIY Wooden Accents

The rustic farmhouse look is easy to execute when you have the right items. An old sled, metal buckets, and wooden shutters give this front porch the right amount of rustic charm. The creative crafters from Blesser House put together a step-by-step tutorial for the DIY wooden shutters, making this project a holiday must-try.

5. Fresh Welcome

Using fresh greenery is a beautiful way to add farmhouse charm to your front porch, and the possibilities are endless. Drape greenery around your front door, fashion a wreath, or put greenery in planters. You can add fruit to topiaries, a wreath, or doorway greenery for a punch of color, like this example from French Country Cottage. The soft gold of candlelight from lanterns gives a warm welcome to guests.

6. Small but Stately

Don't have a big farmhouse front porch? That shouldn't stop you! Adorn the space you have with plenty of green garland and a beautiful wreath.

7. Seasonal Soffit

Who says you can only use garland around your front door? Soffits are fair game as well. Add metal pails filled with small trees for a simple Christmas touch. And instead of a traditional round wreath, fashion a snowflake-shape wreath with fresh greenery.

8. Traditional Flair

Want to pull off a traditional farmhouse look? Drape the entryway with garland, like Our Southern Home did, while flanking the front door with topiaries. And add festive ribbon to the topiaries and garland for touches of classic color.
