One of the best ways to get in the Christmas spirit is to decorate your front door! Each year I crank up the Christmas music and work on my front porch and by the time it is all decorated I have tons of Christmas spirit!!! So today I’m sharing the Christmas porch and sending you lots of inspiration and Christmas spirit too!
Today on Decorating Tips And Tricks we are talking about CHRISTMAS MANTELS! If you don’t have a mantel any flat surface will do! Listen as we give lots of tips for decorating a mantel for the holidays!

Here at StoneGable we are decking the halls and soaking up every second of the Christmas season! The very first thing I do when it’s time to decorate is put a wreath on my front door!
In years past I have used a real evergreen wreath but this year I am using a faux one that is pre-lit and uses a timer and batteries. Very convenient and it looks so pretty when the sun goes down!
I found the wreath at Costco and these pretty trees at Michaels.
White lanterns decorated for Christmas!
I love black and white with any other color. So I mixed black and white ribbons with Christmas plaid ribbon.
More Lanterns! Instead of installing porch lights (we have canned lights in the roof of the porch) we opted for large lanterns that hang on either side of the front door. The candle in them is a Luminaria candle that is battery operated and on a timer. The flame actually flickers. You can see it HERE.
The garland around the door is dotted with pinecones and Christmas balls!
The best “decoration” of all is Beau the Wonderdog!
Prepared to be inspired by these festive Christmas decorating ideas for your front porch, sunroom, screened-in porch or gazebo.
