It’s the season for showing off your holiday spirit. Just imagine greeting your guests – those you may not have seen in quite some time – this holiday season with a home that has been beatufully decorated from the inside out.
Now, before you begin letting the thought of decorating your home all your own stress you out, can I let you in on a little secret? The following welcoming exterior holiday decorating ideas are friendly both on your time and budget.
Idea #1: Wrap a Giant Sized Present Up
Let’s face it, the holidays are the one time of year that homeowners are faced with having to “go big, or go home” – when decorating their home’s that is. So why not utilize your garage door, which in my opionion is one large canvas just waiting to be utilized, and wrap it up?
For as little as $10, you can turn a roll of wrapping paper and ribbon, into a beatufully crafted work of art – a giant sized present. Find varying shades and images to bring out the season’s shine. Just remember to tape your present down really good to avoid it from being unwrapped.
Idea #2: Hang a Decorative Wreath and Twinkling Lights
You can hang a decorative wreath on your front door, as well as on your garage door (and any other front facing doors, if you’d like), along with white twinkling lights. For added warmth, you can hang garland around the door(s) of your choosing, as well as provide ample holiday lighting up and down your walkway.
Idea #3: Create an Awe-Inspiring Light Show
Creative holiday lights shows, or just holiday greetings projected on garage doors, always seem to have a way of making me catch my breath in awe. There really isn’t anything quite as magical about Christmas lights!
From the way lights dance around to synchronized music to driving past a home and being greeted with a classic holiday greeting, light shows and outdoor projections can provide your home with added ambiance.
The exterior of your home is just waiting to be adorned with lights that twinkle and giant presents just waiting to be unwarrped Christmas morning. Use the above three exterior holiday decorating ideas to provide your guests with a great first impression this holiday season.
