Mad for Plaid! Christmas Front Porch IdeasNovember 12, 2018 | FILED UNDER: Christmas
You can’t go wrong with plaid this Christmas, and lots of it! I have been a big a long-time fan of plaid – it is such a classic and perfect for the holidays. You might remember this plaid-filled Christmas table I decorated last year. Well, this year plaid is as hot as ever, especially buffalo check plaid, and my friends at Oriental Trading have a ton of fun products with this print. I partnered with them to create this fabulously plaid Christmas front porch, including some simple projects that you can make yourself like no-sew burlap pillows and a faux holly wreath. Read on for more!

I love cozying up the small bench on our front porch with different throw pillows that I rotate throughout the year. These buffalo plaid pillows are really nice quality, and I made a few little burlap pillows embellished with pom-pom trim and plaid words like “noel” and “joy” to pair with them. I loved this pillow project because it starts with a basic burlap pillow cover that has a zipper opening, meaning no sewing is required. I just added the embellishments with hot glue. Get all the supplies and tutorial for these no-sew burlap Christmas pillows.
These little woodland animals with plaid outfits were too sweet not to incorporate into my covered front porch, although they are really meant as tabletop decor. They have flat bottoms so the three animals each stand up easily. The wood planter box that I styled them in is another simple DIY project that I made previously and have reused multiple times in my fall and winter decorating because it is so versatile.
You know how much I love a good DIY wreath, and this wreath couldn’t be simpler to make with a couple strands of faux holly garland and a plaid ribbon. Get the tutorial here.
