Decorating our exterior for the holidays is a first for us this year, and I couldn’t be more excited! This festive space came together easily with a faux wreath and trees, Christmas lights and front porch essentials from The Home Depot. Let’s take a look at all of the details and I will include styling tips along the way. Then, I’ll share some nighttime photos so you all can see it sparkle!
Mixed Greenery for a Natural Look
One of my favorite elements of holiday decor is all of the greenery! I decided to keep things simple with this gorgeous faux mixed pine wreath and two artificial trees. They capture the natural, winter woodland look that I love with no upkeep, and will last for years to come!
The pretty wreath includes battery-operated lights to give our porch a magical glow in the evening, and its generous size fills out the door. Tip: When it comes to scale, make sure you choose pieces that are large enough to make a statement.
These 4-foot trees are pre-lit too! I placed them inside two galvanized resin planters for extra texture.
Front Porch Essentials
To fill out this festive entryway, I added some front porch essentials! The Home Depot has so many great options to choose from.
First, I used two rugs for a layered look. I love this geometric indoor/outdoor rug for added texture, and this cute coir doormat for functionality. Both will stand up to the winter elements.
Second, I added these cute copper lanterns for warmth and shine! Here they are all together so that you can see the sizes. This set of three LED candles is the perfect match. Tip: Decorating with pieces of varying heights and materials, adds interest.
For a touch of fun, I included this 5-foot LED snowman! My kiddos love him and he was so easy to set up. For even more winter wonderland charm, we hung icicle lights along our roof. You will get a better look in the night time photos! Tip: Check out these light clips for attaching lights to your shingles or gutter.
Natural Winter Wonderland Exterior Decor
Here are a few more photos of the completed space! Which piece is your favorite?
It’s so hard to choose favorites, but the mixed greenery wreath is definitely one of mine! I can hardly wait to see this space dusted with fluffy snow. Now, let’s take a night time look.
There is nothing like that magical, night time sparkle when it comes to exterior holiday decor. I had so much fun designing and styling our winter wonderland exterior for the season and hope that you found it inspiring! The Home Depot has everything that you need to decorate for the holidays.
