Decorating the yard is one of the best things about Christmas. It’s when the holiday spirit really makes its presence felt. The outdoor decorations somehow make the whole celebration more cheerful, livelier and a lot more fun.
Welcome your guests with a beautiful wreath on the front door. This one is really simple but it definitely captures the spirit of Christmas. Beautiful, red and offering a great contrast with the dark door.
Make something simple and cute for the outdoors, like a lantern which you can make from a mason jar and some Christmas tree branches. It’s all about the spirit.
Christmas light balls make wonderful and elegant displays for the front yard and garden. They’re actually easy to make and you can play with different colors.
Decorate your mailbox and turn it into a focal point. A great way to increase you home’s curb appeal with giant candy canes made of plywood and burlap and lollipops made of PVC and bouncy balls.
How cute are these snowmen? Place them near your front entrance and they’ll put a smile on your guests’ faces. All you need is some wood, paint and fabric.
Create a stunning light display. Cover your house with Christmas lights of different types and sizes, hang wreaths on the windows and just keep it festive with red and green.
Try a symmetrical approach. A tiny Christmas tree on either side of the front door, a wreath in the center and festive decorations wrapped around the staircase railing.
Turn your old ice skates into decorations for the fence. Fill them with candy canes, tree branches, mistletoe and everything else and tie a beautiful red bow around it.
Give your usual front door accent pieces a festive makeover. Make small Christmas light balls and place them in the planters.
And speaking about planters, maybe you can make them stand out when night falls with a few tiny Christmas lights.
If you want to go the extra mile, you can even make a festive sign shaped like a Christmas tree, with a cheerful message for anyone visiting.
