FESTIVE RAILING DECORATION
Add lights to your outdoor planters and wrap them around your railing or front porch pillars for a festive and bright entrance.
PRETTY PORCH DECOR
Make the most of sheltered porch corners with an impressive (and easy) display. To get the look, top a small bench with a checkered holiday wrap, tiny frosted trees, and a pinecone wreath.
CHRISTMAS LIGHT ORBS
Spheres of grapevines wrapped in Christmas lights become shimmering orbs on a coat of freshly fallen snow. Place these magical globes in your home front and backyards, birdbaths, urns, or on the outside steps to cast an ethereal glow on your outdoor landscape.
TINY FROSTED TREES
Bottlebrush firs look like miniature frosted evergreens when arranged in a wintry bucket or planter.
This inexpensive outdoor Christmas idea is a cinch to execute. Simply layer a stocky glass vase with faux snow and real cranberries (or fake, if you’re worried about animals). Tuck in a pillar candle. Align on your walkway with fir bundles topped with your pretty luminarias.
Add the soft glow of candlelight to your front porch with decorated lanterns. You can top them with beautiful bows and greenery too.
FESTIVE FRONT DOOR
Bright ornaments in red, silver, and gold tones add a pop of color to decor.
CANDY CANE HOLDER
Take inspiration from classic Christmas candy and fill a white planter with decorative candy canes for a unique outdoor holiday decorating idea. Store-bought plastic canes and weather-treated ribbon mean this front door decor can last throughout the season.
