Oh my, I didm’t think that we would be living in our Michigan house & I would still be blogging our NC house, but alas I did so many things while I was there & as we were moving out & didn’t have enough time to blog it all. I hope you are ok with me blogging about our historic rental while we are settling in here in our new home. Yesterday I shared our historic christmas rental with you guys & I promised to share a couple more full blog posts on certain rooms. Today I wanted to share our porch in our historic rental all decked out for the holidays. I hope you enjoy our rustic Christmas porch!
I wanted to make our porch the coziest place in our house. My style is usually very cozy, but I brought it to the extreme in this space. By using my red flannel blanket from H&M & another flannel from Target layered with lots of pillows like the red car christmas tree pillow from Target it made the whole space inviting & welcoming for the holidays. Oh, & I’m guessing that you noticed those burlap Christmas trees…
We made these burlap trees out of 3 simple pieces of wood attached at the top in a teepee or “tree” shape. We attempted different ways of attaching the boards at the top, but ultimately we went with hot gluing the tops together over screwing them together. This was a temporary fix, but they actually made it to Michigan just fine! We then stapled lights on the insides of the of the “wood tree”. After the lights were attached I wrapped the trees with burlap & kept it together with hot glue. After the trees were done I hot glued a star to the top of the trees to hide the tip of the tree where we hot glued. Voila! Some burlap Christmas trees!
This rustic porch was one of my favorite parts of our historic rental & I think it was best decorated for Christmas. What do you think of our holiday porch? Do you decorate your porch for Christmas? I know it’s not for every climate, but in NC it was pretty standard. I would love to hear from you & how you decorate your porch for the holidays!
