I’m so excited to share this fabulous combination of Christmas Buffalo Plaid Porch projects. Taken as a whole, it’s a festive and stylish Christmas display, but actually contains a number of different holiday components.
I have some year-round staples that I use over and over throughout the various seasons, so that’s where I started. My antique wagon and pair of lanterns appear in most of my front porch displays, decked out in seasonal garb.
As you can see, the combination of elements make this front porch display absolutely fabulous for the holiday season. Talk about an eye-catching combination, using a dramatic buffalo plaid pattern to carry through the theme.
Just as with each of the DIY Christmas Buffalo Plaid Porch project posts, I’ve included a RESOURCE SECTION at the end of this article too.
You’ll also find out how to get your copy of the 2021 Christmas Holiday Planner PDF.
I’m a huge fan of everything buffalo plaid. So I was inspired to take advantage of all the fabulous plaid decor on the market this holiday season.
My Christmas Buffalo Plaid Vignette turned into my favorite project on the porch. But it’s a close tie with the clever Christmas Present Tower.
The vignette features three miniature artificial Christmas trees that are decked out in grapevine, red birds, glittery poinsettias, ribbon and bows. I love the addition of the pretty Christmas birds!

This is how you add a lovely “glow” to your Christmas Buffalo Plaid Porch. Pop in some LED battery operated tea lights, and POW, they’re all lit up.

Here’s a clever and unique DIY Christmas decoration that too can be done in a buffalo plaid motif. At nearly 5 feet tall, my Christmas Present Tower will make a real holiday statement in your outdoor holiday display.
I’ll teach you how to waterproof your gift wrap to help keep your tower looking great all season long. Keep in mind that it needs a location that’s protected from the elements. It’s waterproof if some stray rain drops come its way, but certainly not a rainstorm!
It’s such a fun project with lots of room for your own personal tastes and creative vision. I had a great time choosing my gift wrap combinations, along with the ribbons and bows. What fun!

While I’m blessed having inherited a fabulous antique wagon that came with our home, this is really all about creating a burst of color. I included the buffalo plaid throw to lend a bit of warmth to the porch’s dramatic color scheme and tucked in some plaid flowers too.
You’ll need to find a container, vessel or outdoor structure that will hold a whole lot of poinsettia bushes.
If you have a built-in planting bed, it can work perfectly. Or how about using a child’s red wagon wrapped in a big buffalo plaid ribbon and bow? A wine barrel planter?
You see where I’m heading. Give your Christmas Buffalo Plaid Porch a large and colorful mass of poinsettias that will turn a few heads!
At the end of this and each project’s post, you’ll find a Resource Section that will help you start locating and purchasing all the necessary supplies.
Here it’s all about using scrounged decoration bits and pieces, then turning them into a lovely holiday display. I drafted my set of black lanterns to once again help my front porch look classy and festive.
I combined some trimmed evergreen boughs with plaid ribbons and bow for a pleasing arrangement inside the small lantern. The large one starts with, believe it or not, a door swag.
Yep, you can multipurpose these items any way that works for you. I know I do.
I couldn’t resist turning my front door into a “wrapped present”. Adorning the door with a thick velvet ribbon and bow gives the porch a finished feel, without resorting to using a wreath. And that wouldn’t work with the pair of topiaries, right?
Making it even more realistic is one of my Oversized Christmas Gift Tags. This is just one of the three custom tags I created for the Christmas Present Tower project. You’ll find the PDF in the IFAFL Subscriber’s Library.
As far as the topiaries go, if you already own a pair, you’re all set to get started. If not, I’ve got several lovely options from which to choose in the Resource Section.
It’s really just a matter of placing your Christmas birds, bows, glittery poinsettias and ribbons into a nice display. Experiment a little to find a pleasing arrangement that you like and, JUST GO WITH IT!
