Garland

Another great Christmas front porch decor idea is to hang garland around your porch. Garland is a string of greenery that can be draped across your porch railings or hung around your front door. Garland can be made of evergreen branches, holly, or even artificial materials like tinsel or beads.

DIY Christmas Decor for Your Front Porch

If you're feeling crafty, consider making your own Christmas front porch decor. One fun DIY project is to create a set of oversized ornaments to hang on your porch. To make these ornaments, you'll need large styrofoam balls, paint, and ribbon.

Next, paint the styrofoam balls in festive colors like red, green, and gold, and then tie ribbon around them to hang them from your porch ceiling. These oversized ornaments are sure to make a statement and will add a playful touch to your front porch decor.

Nutcracker Decor

Putting giant nutcrackers on your front porch for Christmas is always a good idea! There are so many available, but you can also DIY one yourself!
