Your Christmas decorations are never quite complete without a few outdoor extensions to spread the Christmas cheer to your neighbors and bypassers. At Holyart, we have a great set of ideas and products that will make your home the envy of many. So, what is the best way to decorate your Garden for Christmas? Glad you asked, let’s jump right in.
- First, and most importantly, Christmas is all about the lights. You can actually just get a ton of string lights and your garden will still stand out. But, you don’t just want to stand out, you want to make a statement, so here’s how you do it.
- Dress up your trees. You probably have a tree in the living that your neighbors can barely see from your window, well, here’s an idea, how about you get yourself some of the best blends of Christmas lights from Holyart and wrap them around your trees. These lights will light up your garden and shove the Christmas spirit down everyone’s throat. Literally.
- You can also use a set of string lights to illuminate your walkway. Mix this with the lights on the trees and you have a full-blown festival. The walkway lights act as a welcoming message to friends and family who may come to visit you over Christmas, and although they may not be visible from the street, they will still be appreciated by your guests
- You can also wrap some string lights along the fence. This works great especially if you have a wire fence.
- Lastly, you can also put lights on your door, wrap them around other plants, you can create shapes or write a welcome message on your door and cover it with lights, or an inspirational message as well.
Then you can do a couple of things on your lawn to accessorize on the lights you put up.
- A holiday bench would be a good place to start. It makes very little sense to do all this Christmas lighting and not have a little chill spot where you and your family can sit and enjoy the view. A holiday bench can be put up, decorated with Christmas ornaments, you can sprinkle in a little snow, maybe some pines and evergreens, or you can even scatter some string lights across it just to give it a bit of kick.
- You can also give your porch a little life by throwing in some winter flowers. They work great, and they look even better when you have some ornaments to back them up. In case you are on a budget, the outdoors doesn’t need expensive ornaments, you can use leftover Christmas balls from your home décor, or if you bought new ornaments for the house, then you can fish around for old ones that you used the previous year.
- If you have lanterns or other sources of outside lighting, you can sprinkle fake snow on them to create that winter feeling.
- You can also dress up bare branches and leaves with ornaments and some fake snow. Wire stars and Christmas lights also blend together perfectly to give your garden a unique finish.
There are a lot of things that you have lying around your porch that can be quite handy in this decoration process. Here are a bunch of things you can recycle that will help your garden decorations to stand out.
- You can actually design ribbons from old paper, or from wrapping paper that you threw in the trash but never got time to get rid of. Blending the colors of this papers and designing multicolored ribbons can be an easy, quick and cheap way to come up with some great décor for your garden.
- Old jars can also be filled with Christmas lights and topped off with a few ornaments. You can also use candles and greenery to decorate sidewalks.
- If you have a keyboard that doesn’t work, or a scrabble set that no ever really uses, then you can use the letters from each to spell Welcome, or Merry Christmas on your door or even on your lawn trees. You can add some string lights on them to make them prettier and more visible.
- If you have a set of old rain boots that no one wears anymore, or even skates and skis, you can fill them with lights, maybe some branches or twigs, wrap some ribbons around them and hang them out. There are lots of unorthodox ways to decorate your garden, all you need is time, some Holyart tips and a bit of creativity.
- You can also go treasure hunting for old winter socks, old sweaters, old pillows or any old clothes that grew worn out or that your kids outgrew. Here you can make anything from Christmas stockings to ribbons made of fabric and a bunch of other cool stuff. The great thing about having old clothes is you get a variety of colors to play around with.
This means if you have a theme set, you can ravage through your leftover draw and find the right color blend that suits your decorating pattern. This is a fun experience that can be fun for the whole family. You can drag your kids into it and scare them into submission.
- You can also use junk mail, recycle paper, any piece of paper that you want to get rid of can actually make a great supplement for making ribbons and cool add-ons for your garden decorations.
- Finally, there are always those old planters lying around that no one ever pays any attention to. The ones stuck on the edges of your walkway with no plant life. Well, you can always fill them up with lights and ornaments, bring them back to life.
There are tons of great ideas to choose from, all you have to do is pick a theme, gather up your material and get to work!
