Add some festive cheer to your porch with a Christmas hanging basket. You can either make over a basket you had made for the summer or start from scratch and make a new one specially designed for the holiday season.
Put together a special arrangement of winter foliage to brighten up your outdoors. Adorn with lights and baubles for an even more festive look.
Purchase supplies at the dollar store to keep prices down and you can also use items you already have lying around for example old Christmas decorations that you were going to recycle anyway.

Pine Cones and Winter Berries
Pine Cones and Winter Berries will make a delightful arrangement to display on your front porch. Intersperse them with branches of fir to make a display that is really pleasing to the eye. You could use a mix of faux or real foliage as you like.
In this display, holly is shown in its full glory with illumination. Purchase some fairy lights to lend a beautiful glow to the arrangement. This would also make a wonderful hostess gift or even a charming gift for neighbors and friends alike.
Get creative with your hanging baskets and use items such as a bird cage to create a little interesting look. It makes great and lovely color for the yard and patio or even a balcony. The faux red cardinal is a really sweet addition.
