Woodland Winter Christmas Porch

12.11.2016

On Friday I shared my new wreath on the front porch and as beautiful as it is it just isn't enough. So what do you do when you are not sure how to decorate the front porch? I thought I was going to go to Hobby Lobby or Michael's and get a couple more trees to go with the one I have and just group them together and call it a day. Well, neither store had those trees so then I was stumped. So I walked out of Hobby Lobby and right next door is a flea market I go to so I figured I could walk through it and maybe get inspired by something. Bingo! There was the start of my inspiration when I spotted this cute chair in a fun green color and it was only fifteen dollars. My wheels were spinning then. I could grab this and that and create a woodland winter scene.





After finding the chair I found the ice skates and knew I could use these on the porch.

I added the plaid throw, birch logs, and a lantern on one side.

On the right I placed my one tree, that I couldn't find mates for, in a bushel basket and placed my twig deer in front.

And when you want snow, but live in the south and that most likely isn't happening you just use a coarse salt. Yep, I sprinkled salt all over the porch. You should have seen the UPS guy's face when he saw it. 😲

A couple of cardinals landed on the tree.


And that is my woodland winter Christmas porch along with some fall leaves in our mulch. Right beside the porch our crepe myrtle is in full fall color. It's so late losing its leaves this year and my outside Christmas decor looks a little confused. 😖


Be Sure To Pin It!

  5. So cute, Kim! I've had that exact same thing happen. You have an idea in your head but the stores don't cooperate with the product you need. Then you're left scrambling for something else. Good idea to head over to your flea market for inspiration! Turned out great.

  6. I was all excited because I thought you had snow down there!!! Love the salt idea :) BTW, I have the matching trees in my living room. I bought them in a set of three a few years ago and I can only find the smallest two.

  7. I am a porch lover, no matter what the size, and this is just darling. You are the best at taking a space and turning it into something very special. We are getting our first snow of the season and I wish I could send you some for your porch! Merry Christmas to you and your family...Ann

  15. Be careful of that salt getting in your flower beds, will kill your plants. Porch looks wonderful. Merry Christmas

  17. Great holiday save! Amazing what you can sometimes come up with when under a little pressure! Sort of gets the creative juices flowing, doesn't it?

    I have a little twig deer--smaller than yours--and I've never seen another one like it. I can't remember where I got mine, but he always comes out and gets a nice red ribbon and bow around his neck for the holidays.

    Your porch looks very festive! Don't let the salt get on the plants nearby; I think they wouldn't like it.

    Happy Holidays!

  18. Love flea mkts for inspiration...pretty porch! (I'm a northerner...be careful about the salt on your porch as it can 'eat away' at your stone landing!!!)

  19. Thanks for the concern about the salt. It was only used for the photos and then cleaned up.

  20. It's perfect, Kim! Sometimes the best ideas come when we are stumped! Using the salt for snow was brilliant!

  21. Hi Kim, love the winter feel of your Christmas display, the salt giving it a dusting of iced frost is fabulous. It really created a Christmas all is calm feel.
    Everything you create and design is perfection any season or holiday.

    I was so happy to see that I recieved a stocking order from you!
    It's on it's way and will be on a truck in the early shipment Monday morning and should arrive by Wednesday.

    Thank you dearly, your a doll.

    Un Joyeux Noël
