A Farmhouse Christmas Porch and Entry
Well, its finally the true Christmas season, and boy oh boy its already been a crazy few days! And I know they are only going to get more crazy. Over the next week I will be participating in quite a few home tours, and today is the start! Today I am joining some very talented bloggers for a room by room home tour created by my friend Kristi at Chatfield Court. And I am kicking it off! I am starting it off with my farmhouse Christmas porch and entry. If you are stopping by from Artsy Chicks Rule, I am so glad toy are here!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have been seeing sneak peeks of what I have been doing on my front porch, and even got to create a winter woodland porch for Home Depot a few weeks ago. I changed things up and simplified the entire space. I am really drawn to the simple Christmas touches this year.
Welcome to my Farmhouse for Christmas
I have been really drawn to simple Christmas trees this year and really wanted them to be the focal point of my porch. I dotted them here and there.
Keeping things simple can actually be really hard at Christmastime. I find myself going simple, but then also wanting to go all out…like all out! But then when I do, I am not happy with it, and I end up scaling down again. I must be so fun to live with!
I found that adding my vintage washtub, along with an old crate with pillows and my DIY wooden sled is all I needed.
I added some Christmas trees , stacked wood for the fireplace, and a live Christmas wreath on the door. I made that wreath all myself. It was surprisingly easier to do than I thought it would be!
Heading inside, I have kept with the simple farmhouse Christmas decor.
I actually moved away from the traditional reds and greens and used a simple grainsack fabric pillow in blue from Farmhouse on Boone as my “color”.
Last week, I posted about how I made this easy peg coat and hat rack, and wouldn’t you know its the perfect place to “hang stockings with care: as well.
I made these simple stockings out of muslin. They are simple, imperfect and I love them.
I rounded out my stockings by adding a simple boxwood wreath, you can see how I made it HERE.
I centered everything in my entry around this gorgeous vintage church pew.
Whats your favorite feature? I am kind of obsessed with my super easy muslin stockings. They are the perfect farmhouse Christmas decor accent.
