Hello everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a peek into my home dressed up for the holidays these past two weeks! Today I’m sharing more of my home tour, ideas for Holiday Cheer Outdoor Christmas Decorations and a $150 Gift Card Giveaway (details below)! I can’t wait to show you….decorating my entryway and front of my home is one of my favorite things to do!
In case you missed it I shared my foyer, mantel and Christmas tree in my Christmas Home Tour with Country Living and my family room, dining room and hot tub in my Christmas Home Tour Part Two.
Welcome to our Home!
Outdoor LED Candles with timers

I love decorating my entryway for the holidays and maxing out the curb appeal! I always try to create a feeling of welcome and holiday cheer in my entryway for our guests and I just love decorating it for our family too!
I started by hanging a pine garland around our door – with some real pine cones and metallic silver pine cone accents.
I LOVE decorating our Planters for Christmas! Lots of white pine and cedar boughs, curly willow, birch branches and my DIY Pine Cone Picks. These holiday planters really add a lot of wow factor – and I love the pop of classic black they add to the front of our home!
Those white snow berry picks are a score from the DOLLAR STORE!
I dressed up my big black Ikea lanterns (these are amazing for indoors or out!) with Outdoor LED Candles with timers (they automatically come on when it gets dark outdoors!), some pine and cedar branches and black, gold and silver Christmas balls. Black at Christmas?? Yes I love it mixed with silver and gold – very chic!
I love these gray wicker Ikea chairs for lounging in – so comfy and I just love the texture the gray wicker gives our entryway!
Metallic silver sequin pillows add another extra comfy touch! I wish you could see them in person – they are so so glam!
I just love how the incense cedar drapes over the edges of the planters! All this fresh greenery smells so amazing!
I purchased this vintage sled at a thrift store years ago…added some fresh pine, cedar and a icy pine dollar store garland.
I also gave our lamp post some holiday cheer! I added a faux pine garland and real cedar branches – I love adding real greenery to faux garland to give it more fullness! Green glittered pine boughs and raffia accents top it off.
This is our side gate! I made this DIY vintage skate wreath a couple of weekends ago with some ladies white ice skates I found uber cheap at the thrift store!
These DIY glam pine wreaths flank our garage. Quick and easy decorating idea – I stuck in bronze glittered pine picks and icy pine picks, just bending them slightly to follow the form of the wreath….that’s it! They are so sparkly in the sunlight and at night when our Christmas lights are on!
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Holiday Cheer Outdoor Decorations and Christmas Entryway! Come on in to see the rest of my Christmas Home Tour!

Heather, your front porch is so beautifully decorated with the sentiment of being most welcoming to your family and friends…I love how you used so much fresh greenery and the combination with the glitz of those great pillows and wreath is perfection!…..Merry Christmas to you and your family Heather!!!
Heather, I always love seeing ice skates added to outdoor decor even though I have never ever tried my hand at ice skating.
Heather I love how you mix the rustic and sparkle, you do it perfectly! It’s really beautiful!

So pretty and I must admit that I wish I could do fresh greenery outside, but it would fry where I live! Happy holidays…Janet

What a beautiful way to welcome family and friends to your home Heather. The entrance must smell divine with all those fresh greens. It’s summer here, so I can’t do fresh greens outside but I try to use them indoors. Merry Christmas!!
It does smell so fresh and festive Kerryanne! Merry Christmas!
