Here are a couple of quick and easy ideas for some inspiration to add to an outdoor winter porch. The porch is the first thing you see that welcomes you into a home. When Christmas comes down, everything looks a bit blah to me. I wanted my porch to be inviting and fun even though it is cold and snowy. This is why I turned to textures and colors for some inspiration. When I think of colors of winter I think of cream, blue, green and gray. I think of yarn sweaters, pine, and sledding outdoors. I took that inspiration to create my fun and simple winter porch.
Th first think I needed was a wreath for the front door. I took a foam wreath form and wrapped it in cream braided yarn. So fast and so simple. I took some green ribbon and a pine pick to finish the look.
I grabbed my old vintage sled from the shed and propped it up in the corner with a small pine wreath. I kept the lanterns out from Christmas and added some wintery fabric to my frame. Ice skates add the final wintery touch I needed in that corner.
I had this old night stand I no longer needed inside of my house and put it on the other side of the door. I made a runner with the same fabric I used in the frame, and kept the tree, lantern, and deer out from Christmas.
