The holiday season is upon us and it’s time to decorate! For many people, getting the family together to put up the Christmas tree and hang the stockings is the first thing to do. However, before you tackle the inside of your home, why not spread some cheer with outdoor Christmas decorations. Here are three style ideas you may want to try this year.
If your decorating style leans toward the classics, think red, green, and white when sprucing up your home. You can pick up rich garland and wreaths that come with crisp white lights, berries, or pinecones. Hang a plump wreath on your front door and wrap the garland around railings and pillars. For a picturesque entryway, drape garland or tinsel around the doorway. Add poinsettias or lanterns to your front porch and give your home a cozy feeling with flameless candles in the windows.
While you put your feet up and settle into the recliner, easily order these types of traditional Christmas decorations off of Amazon. Accomplish two things at once when you add a few presents to your cart before checking out. This way, you can cross of holiday décor and gifts off of your shopping list.
Make your house the one every kid wants to pull over and admire this holiday season. Get into the merry and bright spirit with fun inflatables and yard decorations featuring Santa, snowmen or favorite cartoon characters. Be sure to include strands of multicolor lights or stick a light show projector in your lawn to cast warm holiday greetings and colors onto the façade of your home. These trimmings typically cost a little more upfront but can be used for years to come.

If you embrace the minimalist mindset, you can still show off some holiday spirit with outdoor decorations. The key to modern style is to keep it simple. With fine strands of evergreen garland, you can create small wreaths to hang in the windows. Embellish the front door with a cable knit stocking and line your steps with some bottle brush trees and you just nailed that clean, open aesthetic.
Additionally, save money on modern decorations when you make them yourself by visiting an arts & crafts retailer like Joann Fabrics. Their website offers helpful how-to videos and project guides. The project guides let you know how on average, how long the project will take, skill level, items needed, and directions that you can print out.
In short, take a long weekend and expand on that yearly decorating tradition when you include festive elements on the outside of your home. Whether you prefer conventional, lighthearted, or contemporary style, you can find lights, ornaments, bows and more to match your holiday mood.
