Christmas Porch Decor Featuring A Christmas Sled

by Alli

As you probably know by now, it rarely snows in my neck of the woods. So, a few years ago I decided to decorate my porch as if we have plenty of snow. It took a couple of years to finally get a sled for my Christmas porch decor.

The search for a sled in my area proved to be futile. When I told my sister in Colorado that I couldn’t find a sled anywhere, she told me to let her handle it and of course, she found one immediately. She was going to mail it to me, but when we found out how much it would cost (a lot!), that idea was nixed.

Last year, when my sister and her husband came to visit, guess what? She brought the sled with her. I have to make my sister proud so I hope she likes what I’ve done! And thanks, Melinda, for the sled! She also provided the ice skates – all for free! Yes, she’s my favorite sister! She would be my fave even if she wasn’t my only sister. 🙂

Christmas Porch Decor

Remember the DIY wreath I made on day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas? I decided to add it to my sled when Tree Classics sent me some garland and a wreath for my front door. I think it all goes together perfectly.

Back in the day, we added icicle lights to the house and went over-the-top on the Christmas decor. These days, I like a more simple, laid-back approach. It works for me and once the season is over, getting all the decor packed up is so much easier.

A little pine tree from the woods next to my house and a vintage red truck (Sam’s Club) finishes off my front porch. I’m in love with the little red truck. It lights up, too!

I have a chair on the other side of the front door to balance everything out. I dressed it up with a faux fur throw, a plaid throw, and a Christmas pillow. The throws and pillows go inside at night!

So pretty and inviting. It does have that cold wintry feel with the plaids and the sled.

That vintage truck is so cute! I have to admit, I’d rather be in an area that doesn’t get snow, I think you’re lucky!
