Many of your are already decorating for Valentine’s Day but I’m still embracing winter in my neck of the woods. Around here winter lasts for a while and often includes some snow up until March, so I thought I’d put together a Winter White Porch to last me until spring time. I just couldn’t stand having a bare porch until then!
I wanted to put together a rustic winter white space that was welcoming and true to my style. To create the look I mixed crisp white with natural elements including burlap, pine cones, branches and greenery. I mainly used things I had around the house and added a few simple DIY projects.
To the left is a display of galvanized buckets I got from my grandma filled with pine cones and logs. The branch display was made with fallen branches from the woods behind our neighborhood, wrapped in jute. And the stars are basic metal stars spray painted white.
These burlap topiary trees were my latest DIY project and I’m so excited about how they turned out. They are a little out of my comfort zone but I like to stretch myself and I’m glad I did (tutorial coming soon). And the best of all they will transition perfectly into spring.
I shared my Pine Cone Wreath with you all last week, if you’ve been around a while you’ll notice that this wreath has made an appearance through the last few months. You can see the fall version here and the Christmas version here.
And throughout the porch I added a few recycled jars filled with Epsom and candles. It adds a little touch of a winter wonderland feel. Maybe they will be a good luck charm for more snow this year :)

So what about you? Do you keep a winter porch up until spring or do you deck it out for Valentine’s Day?
