Each one of these featured small porches presented challenges because of their size, but a little outside-of-the-box thinking resulted in small porches that are big on Christmas style!
Whether you have a large porch, a small porch, or just a front stoop with no porch at all, you’ll be inspired by these Christmas porch styling ideas.
If your porch is only wide enough for sidelights on each side of the front door, small Christmas trees in tall urns are perfect.
If you have sidelights that are narrow, use smaller urns with pencil trees. If there isn’t room for two urns, one will do!
Is there anything prettier or more welcoming than a vibrant red front door? It will make your small porch pop and automatically looks festive at Christmas!
If you have room for a small chest or table, it’s the perfect spot to add a few special decor touches.
If your porch is so small that it doesn’t have much floor space, go vertical.
Create the illusion of a large porch by framing your door with garland, using a teardrop swag for a wreath, and adding tall vertical elements to planters beside the door.
Add a Christmas message to an old door turned chalkboard propped against the wall.
Another option for going vertical – an old screen or window. Such a pretty, unexpected way to display a Christmas wreath.
Add interest to an old window frame by topping it with a diy star made from scrap wood.
Add a soft blanket, scarf or piece of Christmas’y fabric if you have even the smallest of chairs or benches on your porch.
Even a small stoop is made festive with fresh greenery and two small decorated urns.
It’s easy to tuck a small container filled with lush greenery and Christmas ornaments into an empty spot.
Christmas decorations don’t have to actually be on the porch. Consider adding decorations leading up to your small porch instead of actually on it.
Don’t forget about your back porch too! Screen porches and decks make great spots for adding holiday cheer like these adorable twig deers.
Cozy up a small screen porch for Christmas by adding a skinny pencil tree decorated with outdoor type decorations.
Your porch may be small, but don’t forget the cozy factor!
