$100 Simple Christmas Porch

Getting read for Christmas can be so exciting, magical and overwhelming all at the same time. Today, I’d like to give you an idea of how you can decorate the outside of your home really simply and beautifully on a small budget.

People spend thousands covering every inch of their roofs with professional lights, and while this looks amazing, having just a few trimmings around your front door is easy, inexpensive and creates a warm and festive welcome.

Here are a few essentials that will get your porch looking as pretty as Martha’s:

Wreath: As always, lighting is key and battery-operated wreaths like this for the front door are a must. I’m going to dress mine up with a simple large bow.

Mini Christmas Trees: If you have room either side your front door, little christmas trees would be stunning. These 4′ christmas trees are a steal! Only $50 for two!

Wreath + Garland + Two Christmas Trees = $100

Now I just need to brace the cold and get out there!
