Welcome to a special Christmas porch holiday edition of our weekly Three Things series!
As I was shooting photos for our holiday home tour, I found myself with a LOT more pictures than I wanted to bombard you all with in one post. And since our simple, natural and neutral Christmas decoration are some of my favorite things, sharing more today seemed a perfect fit.
Today I am concentrating on our Christmas porch decor, which is simple to recreate and I hope inspires you in your own decorating!

Why do I love our Christmas porch decorations? They are nothing 'special' and I didn't spend more than a few minutes on them (not more than 30, to be exact) - and those were mostly spent gathering the greens from around the yard.
And THAT'S why I love it! I'm not a fan of over-the-top decor - for me. I don't want to spend the money, time, or energy, let alone store it all after Christmas is over.
So I use many of the same things from last year, like the sled and chalkboard pot, and add simple cut greens, a few ornaments, burlap ribbon, and our regular lights. It makes me happy and looks pretty festive, I think!
I was inspired to add antlers from the stash my stepdad gave me after seeing an example very similar to how mine turned out in a magazine - for $49!
My wreath was $10 (the only thing I purchased new for the porch this year) and while it's not flashy I like how it ties into our theme this year.
I don't think I'm quite done with it, though - I'm thinking about adding a couple wood slice ornaments hanging from the middle - what do you think?
This is a fast idea for bare-looking pots for your Christmas porch that I've seen in a lot of magazines:
Cover the bare soil with greenery (I used dwarf laurel leaves) and add a few ornaments on top. Done and done!
