Pick a theme
Christmas is a simultaneously joyous and hectic time of year. Outdoor Christmas decorations are a great way to share your holiday spirit with your neighbors and passersby. But before you start hanging lights and blowing up inflatable snowmen, you need to decide on a theme. Will your outdoor Christmas decorations be playful and cute? Traditional and elegant? Whimsical and unique?
Your outdoor Christmas decorations should reflect your personal style, so take some time to browse Pinterest or magazines to get some inspiration. Once you’ve decided on a general direction, it’s time to start shopping! But before you hit the stores, take a look around your house—you might already have everything you need.
Start with the front door
The front door is the first thing guests see when they arrive to your home, so make a lasting impression by giving it a festive makeover for Christmas. A wreath is the classic Christmas decoration for your door, and you can get creative with it by using unique materials like ribbons, greenery, ornaments, and more. You can also add other holiday embellishments like a welcome sign, garland, or string lights. Get started on your Christmas door decoration by checking out our favorite ideas below.
Move on to the porch
Now that you’ve cleared the yard, it’s time to move on to the porch. If you have a small porch, don’t worry — you can still make a big impact with your Christmas decor. Just be selective about what you choose to display. A few well-chosen pieces will create a festive and inviting space.
Don’t forget the mailbox
One easy way to add some holiday cheer to your home’s curb appeal is to decorate your mailbox. This can be as simple as adding a green wreath with a red bow, or you can go all out and cover the entire mailbox in wrapping paper and ribbon. Just make sure you don’t block any of the flags or numbers!
Make a statement with lights
Make a statement with your Christmas lights this holiday season! Outdoor Christmas lights are a great way to add some festive cheer to your home and spread some holiday cheer to your neighbors. There are lots of different ways you can decorate with lights, so get creative and have fun!
Get creative with greenery
From traditional red and green to more nontraditional hues, there are plenty of ways to get creative with greenery when you’re decorating your home for Christmas. If you want to make a statement, try using all one color or mix and match different shades and textures for a unique look.
Once you’ve selected your color scheme, it’s time to start decorating! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
-Wrap garland around your front door or porch columns.
-Hang wreaths on your doors and windows.
-Deck out your mailbox with a festive arrangement.
-Make a swag using greenery, berries, and ribbons to hang over a fireplace or on a wall.
-Fill vases, bowls, or baskets with evergreens, pinecones, and holiday decorations.
-Use garland to create a “faux” fireplace mantel mantle.
Add some flair with yard décor
With all of the focus on indoor holiday décor, it’s easy to forget about your home’s curb appeal. But if you want your home to look merry and bright for holiday parties and visiting relatives, don’t neglect your outdoor spaces!
One way to add some holiday cheer to your yard is with décor designed specifically for the great outdoors. You can find all sorts of lawn ornaments, from inflatable snowmen to electric candles for your windows. Just make sure that any cords are well out of reach of small children and pets.
Another way to spruce up your yard for the holidays is with lights. You can find all sorts of string lights that are made specifically for outdoor use, in a variety of colors and styles. Just be sure not to overload your electrical outlets, and take care when hanging lights so that you don’t damage your roof or gutters.
You can also use holiday-themed planters or evergreen wreaths as part of your yard décor. Be sure to keep any live plants well watered, especially if there is a chance of frost or freezing temperatures. And if you have any pets that like to chew on plants, be sure to keep them away from any poisonous plants or decorations.
With a little bit of planning and creativity, you can easily turn your yard into a festive winter wonderland that will impress your friends and family!
Bring the inside out
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to decorate your home. If you want to really get into the festive spirit, why not decorate your outside space as well as your inside?
Here are some ideas to get you started:
– Hang fairy lights in your trees and on your porch.
– Place a large wreath on your front door.
– Place small groups of festive figurines and other decorations around your garden.
– Use battery-operated candles in lanterns to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Get the kids involved
One of the best ways to get your kids involved in decorating for Christmas is to let them help you with the outdoor lights. If you have young children, let them help you string the lights on the tree or on the banister. If you have older children, they can help you put up the outdoor lights. This is a great way to bond with your kids and to create lasting memories.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, we’re not talking about pumpkin spice season—we’re referring to Christmas. The holidays are a special time to celebrate with family and friends, and what better way to do that than by decorating your home to the nines?
