A Fun Christmas Porch Decor Makeover ShabbyChicHouse.com

In 2020 we offered the authentic ShabbyChicHouse (a 1965 split-stage) and moved into the recently built ShabbyChicHouse. The original ShabbyChicHouse had small roofs with negligible pitch, so it was pretty simple to string Xmas lights all over the put.

Our new residence has dangerously substantial roofs, so we weren’t guaranteed how best to decorate in 12 months 1. We tried stringing up some of our previous Christmas lights on the three pillars in the entrance of our dwelling, but they just didn’t search/cling suitable.

With that being the situation, it gave us the excellent excuse to purchase all-new Christmas porch decor and truly light-weight up the community. Observe alongside as we share some of our most loved finds in this Christmas porch decor makeover!

Pre-Lit Garland

In 2021, Garland is all the rage for decorating outside porches and this 12 months we hopped on the Garland educate.

So this yr we resolved to give these pre-lit 18′ garland strands a attempt and they appear completely astounding. The green garland provides extra depth, dimension and material that is noticeable from the highway, compared with our previous string lights.

We at first ran across these garland strings by Home Accents on Amazon, but then located them for a fraction of the rate at Household Depot. Wow! How is this kind of a huge price variation possible?
