How to Decorate Your Porch for a Farmhouse Christmas

From Christmas guests to carolers, celebrate with everyone this season with Farmhouse Christmas decor. With a traditional Christmas wreath, welcome mat, and a few rural-inspired accents, your porch will feel like a farm-fresh holiday hub. Use this guide to capture the essentials for your Farmhouse Christmas.

Hang a Christmas Wreath


Big, lush wreaths are all the rage in December. They’re an easy, understated way to get your porch or walkway ready for the season. From traditional wreaths made of evergreen to more unique versions made with anything from feathers to cotton, nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a Christmas wreath on your front door.


Add Old Fashioned Rocking Chairs

Homemade Decorations

Extra seating is a must when you’re hosting for Christmas, so why not add some on your porch? Rocking chairs add some country charm to your front porch. Add a thick flannel blanket and throw pillow to make your porch feel even more welcoming.


Wrap Garland Around the Door or Railing

Porch Decor

Evergreen garlands featuring pinecones, berries, and lights can add some fresh greenery to your Christmas porch decor. Use your garlands to line your door or wrap around your balcony. There are also a variety of garland types available, from shiny tinsel to authentic-looking evergreen. You can even find garlands with built-in lights to make your front porch feel even more cheerful and welcoming.


Add Festive Natural Touches

Natural Outdoor Accents

Natural, earthy elements are essential for capturing a Farmhouse Christmas style. Adding touches from the outdoors, like sprigs of evergreens, winter berries, and cinnamon, make a porch feel festive and welcoming. Whether you use artificial or natural plants for decorating your Farmhouse Christmas porch, use symmetrical placement to avoid overcrowding.
