Rustic Christmas Porch Steps

Back in November I started decorating our front porch stairs. I have never shared them with you in all of that time because I went out there one day to work on them & never worked on them again beyond that & in turn never finished them. I wasn’t feeling inspired at all. Which is strange because ever since we moved into this house 7 months ago I was so excited to decorate the stairs for the holiday season, but when it came down to it, I plopped some Christmas buckets on the steps, filled them with some finds, & called it good. Guess what happned then? We got a million feet of snow & it covered everything on the porch. It was quite comical, but I didn’t want to just not share with you guys how the steps looked this season even if in my eyes it wasn’t “done”. So I trekked out in the snow & 15 degree temps yesterday & snapped some photos with how it turned out…

I mean, we are covered in snow here in West Michigan so I’m sorry I didn’t take these photos sooner, but it’s fitting no? These buckets were a find last year [here], & I just lined them up on each side of the front steps. In the bottom bucket I put clippings from our trees in our yard. Berries and pine are always great Christmas decor & it was free! In the next bucket up I places some birch logs that my dad found for me, another free item. Thanks dad! In the next bucket up I placed two Christmas trees that were black Friday finds from Target that I got for $15.. are you kidding? The garland hanging is from Balsam Hill. The string lights are from Amazon [here] & the snow was free as well… thank you mother nature!

& here area  few photos that Tifani Lyn took of us on our front steps this past week…

ok, now that I’m sitting here looking at all of the photos of our front stoop I’m kind of loving all of the snow & don’t think it would look quite as special without it. Glad I waited until the snow storm of 2016 to hit. what do you think of our front porch steps? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram! Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by the blog today! xx
