In case you haven’t picked up on it yet from all my recent posts, I have been slightly obsessing over my Christmas front porch decorations. We typically decorate with icicle lights and a pretty wreath, but this year I really wanted something more Pottery Barn front porch-ish – ya know with lots of textures, layers, and personality…something really welcoming and inviting. Of course, I didn’t want the PB prices so I’ve been slowly working on creating a budget-friendly Christmas front porch and I think I’ve finally got it!
I spent less than $60 to create this entire front porch and all I started with was the wreath – which I made-over this year. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: To keep your decorating budget down, shop your house before the store!
Let’s take a little tour of my front porch and I’ll show you all the DIY Christmas decorations that I made and just how I put them all together to create what I consider (and I fully recognize I am totally bias) a beautiful outdoor Christmas display.

This Christmas I’m taking my front porch up a notch with some large DIY outdoor tomato cage Christmas tress. The icicle lights and wreath are just not gonna cut it this year. Along with my Pottery Barn-inspired ‘Be Merry’ sign, I’m decorating my Christmas front porch with three DIY lighted Christmas trees – all of which I made from tomato cage and dollar store garland. I shared my impromptu mini potted Christmas Tree earlier this week….

Every Halloween, the trick or treaters and their parents love our Halloween decorations and never fail to let us know that we are the best house on the block. I won’t lie, I love it!
Our decorations aren’t anything special or too elaborate, but I think just showing we made the effort with more than carved pumpkins is appreciated. This makes it more fun for everyone!
