Festive Outdoor Christmas Decoration Ideas
Lawn Stake Decorations
Fun yard accents are perfect-economical, can be reused year after year, and are available in designs for every taste. Check out these adorable Christmas gnomes, or the classic Snowman and Santa. If those don’t quite suit you, this bicycle wheel snowman is perfect for more minimalist styles.
Create a Winter Wonderland
If you live in a warmer climate where you don’t get snow, just make your own winter wonderland. This is easily done by hanging snowflake ornaments on trees and bushes. To maximize and reflect your outdoor lights, hang some silver and ice blue wind spinners or sun catchers. Make some winter magic!
When it comes to Christmas décor, the front porch is prime real estate. Create weatherproof flower arrangements with faux holly berry, eucalyptus, and poinsettia flowers. For a rustic touch, arrange them in farmhouse galvanized metal vases. Group several on the front porch for a beautiful and tasteful entryway.
A Wreath for Every Season
This is an obvious one, but don’t forget about wreaths. There are so many styles to choose from, whether you prefer a simple design or like to bring the cheer with festive wreaths. There are so many affordable options, you could adorn every window in the house if you wanted to.
Make the entryway center stage with faux topiary trees. Since these aren’t already decorated, you can have them reflect your personal style however you like. For a fun project with the kids, get a few topiaries in different sizes for them to decorate.
Don’t feel like you’re stuck with designs that have been seen and done-bring your own flair to outdoor decorations! There isn’t any hot glue involved here, just a little imagination and inspiration to create a customized Christmas garland for your front porch. To do this, just weave together lengths of red berry , ball ornaments , and faux eucalyptus. You can make these as minimal or lush as you like, then wrap or drape the porch rail to your heart’s content.
Bows – How to Decorate Columns for Christmas
You can’t go wrong with the timeless Christmas bow. Tie colorful and festive or classic bows to porch furniture, shutters, and anywhere else you can. For a little personal touch, you could customize them with glitter fabric paint. Another great little project for the kids!
Festive Bird Feeders
Did you know there are Christmas-themed bird feeders? Festive bird feeders are a fun and functional way to bring festive cheer to the porch, front yard, and our avian friends! Check out this adorable gnome bird feeder and the classic Christmas tree bird feeder. They are both easy to install and durable, so they can be used year after year.
The possibilities are endless, and these are a few outdoor Christmas decorating ideas to get you started. Remember, there’s no such thing as too much or too little. Have fun, make it your own, and get into the spirit!
