We’ve got the BEST Christmas porch ideas for you!

It’s finally the time to make your house shine with Christmas decor and sparkle!

I know many of us love to decorate the inside of our homes with Christmas trees and decorations, but don’t forget the outside of your home as well.

Do you decorate your front porch for Christmas?

There’s no better way to welcome guests with holiday cheer and warmth.

When you decorate your front porch, entryway, and patio, add more than just a wreath to the door with cute winter boots, a basket of birch logs, or other seasonal fun finds.

After all, the Christmas season is the time to really deck the halls (and the porch).

Bright green holly with red berries, sparkling mini trees, and gorgeous holiday poinsettias are a few great decorations to spruce up your porches with.

Don’t be afraid to bring a few indoor decorations outdoors as well.

Ornaments, lights, and other festive items add to the beauty of your entryway.

Ready to create a front porch that will lead Santa (and guests) right to your front door? Here are some of the best Christmas porches we could find.

These beautiful Christmas porch decorations will welcome your guests in style!

This porch also features some great, bright colors by way of ribbons, bows, and poinsettias!

Check out the loose ribbon on the holly swag, which creates a soft frame for this beautiful holiday porch vignette.

On this porch, they used beautiful long ribbons in alternating silver and deep red.

The red is echoed in the bittersweet berry wreath on the front door and those gorgeous poinsettia arrangements in white porch urns.

It adds a fun and whimsical touch.

The simple arrangement adds festive elegance to any holiday front door.

Plaid pillows and a hot cocoa tray set up a festive look on this porch.

This is another outdoor holiday porch arrangement, where bringing the indoors out creates an inviting space to relax and wait for guests (or Santa).

Use a few pillows in outdoor-friendly fabrics, and bring blankets indoors if the winter weather turns blustery.

Don’t be afraid to add a lot of greenery to your porch!

The yummy evergreen swag, holly berry wreaths, and ivy make this front door feel like the perfect holiday cabin.

Don’t cover a beautiful windowed front door with a wreath–hang it below the glass, as they did on this beautiful door.

Seasonal touches like ice skates, chalkboard art, and fireplace-ready woodpile finish off this adorable and inviting holiday entrance.

I love the look of the big pots of Christmas greenery and pinecones!

There’s no reason to put empty pots in the garage over the winter months.

Fill those beauties with some evergreen boughs, holly berries, and branches.

The evergreen garland and front porch swags frame the look, sprinkled with pinecones for authenticity.

The door wreath is just the right touch of color and looks beautifully hung.

Have fun with a non-traditional wreath on your door, like this swag featuring bows, ribbons, berries, and bells.

Fresh garland frames a door nicely.

The urns with holiday plants in reds and whites are sweet touches that make this front door feel whimsical and inviting (just like the lettering on the happy welcome sign).

How fun and funky is this cute front porch?!

The bright blue bench looks perfectly Christmasy with the darling snowflake pillow.

Add painted polka dots on silver tins planted with mini-trees and you’ve got the most adorable porch in Whoville (or your neck of the woods).

I love how snowflakes were added to the tree, which calls back to the snowflake pillow.

The DIY holiday wreath on the door is the perfect way to top off the Christmas porch display.

While yummy, over-the-top Christmas porch decorations are fun and festive, you can still create a welcoming porch with simple touches.

This front porch uses several evergreen wreaths and a mini tree for a minimal-but-inviting arrangement.

The antique sleigh is the perfect addition!

This porch uses a holiday sled as well but in a different display.

The pine cones, bows, and garland are accented with sparkling snowflakes (echoed in the snowflake pillow on the chair).

One of the best touches on this festive porch is the beautiful empty antique lanterns filled to the brim with shiny ornaments!

Such a great idea for Christmas porch decorations.

The warm fuzzy plaid blanket on the chair is the perfect place to sit while you put on your snow boots!

How sweet and adorable is this Christmas porch? Makeshift burlap trees sparkle and shimmer with Christmas lights.

The adorable ‘Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree flanks the side of the swing beautifully.

I love the addition of the blankets, warm jacket, and boots!

This porch swing looks like it’s just begging for an occupant. The holiday front porch look is completed with the festive pillows.

A covered porch is a great place to add another Christmas tree!

If you have a screened porch or a three-season porch, put it to good use by making it an outdoor extension of your living area!

You’ll notice the Coca-Cola crate and even the ornaments have a rustic feel that works seamlessly on a covered porch.

You may love it so much, you’ll spend Christmas morning on the patio!

Candles on the porch steps light the way up the stoop and lead guest right to the welcoming front door.

The gorgeous real-pine swags and evergreen boughs look even more festive with hanging pine cone “ornaments” strewn on the ribbon, ready to greet all who visit this holiday entryway.

The Christmas tree art on this front porch is actually a great DIY project made with Sharpies! It’s so simple, yet festive and fun.

The black, white, and red geometric designs are complemented by the pillows. 

I love how a tall tin with greenery and the swag on the table complete the look.
