10 Outdoor Christmas Decorations

Every December, my mother would yell, “Come on, please!” until the rest of the family gave in and piled into the car to see the neighborhood light shows. She enjoys Christmas and looks forward to the yearly car journey through our sprawling, meandering neighborhood, slowing down to get a better look at her favorite decorations, turning around to pass by again, and then speculating on how she may put her touch on them.

It’s not only my mum, I know. According to a Gallup study conducted in 2019, 93 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas, which naturally results in a slew of front yard decorations. According to that reasoning, there would be 305.3 million adorned houses if each of those individuals had a front yard to decorate. However, not everyone has a large room to decorate with glittering lights, and no one wants to pay the energy cost that comes with running them 24 hours a day, seven days a week for a month.

 

So, we’ve gathered some of the most incredible outdoor Christmas decoration ideas, and thankfully, they’re light-free—thank you.

1. Sweet & Simple Berry Wreath

The most pleasing Christmas décor is sometimes the most simple, a beautiful example. The bright red berries contrast nicely with an old wooden door painted in rich hunter green. Anyone looking for some colour pallet inspiration?

2. A Porch Full Of Ornaments

Because the family room ceiling is corrugated metal, my family performs something similar inside the house. We use fishing lines and magnets to hang many decorations, and the end product looks like candles in Hogwarts’ Great Hall. These Command hooks would also look great on ceilings or a covered porch!

3. Repurpose Hanging Baskets

If you’ve made it this far, you might as well make your hanging baskets festive. Fresh pine branches, pine cones, and various ornaments are used in these, but you may use any greenery and decorations you prefer.

4. Multi-Pointed Stars In The Trees

There’s something to be said about Christmas decorations that look as fantastic throughout the day as they do at night. During the day, most lighting displays are depressing, but not these adorable hanging stars!

5. Potato-Nosed Gnomes

Okay, these were created by my mum last year, and they’re lovely. They’re also straightforward to make. My mother’s instructions are: start by gathering greens from hardware stores or locations with live trees; they will give you the leftovers for free! Then, wire tomato cages with a point at the top and wire on the sides for the gardens. Make a nose out of a potato, a hat out of a rolled piece of felt, and little mittens for hands.

6. Modern Wood Trees

These charming contemporary trees can be made with just two pieces of plywood, a kind hardware shop employee, and one day. Okay, a few more items are needed, but you get the idea. This may be scaled down for use as tabletop décor.

7. Preserved Magnolia Wreaths

Preserved magnolia leaves can be used all year (I have a bunch in a vase on the kitchen table right now), but during the holiday season, they’re a subtle addition to the rest of your décor, like these wreaths on a row of porch windows.

8. Twinkling Branches

This front entrance décor is pleasantly holiday-themed despite the lack of ribbon, nutcrackers, and trees. The glittering branches that span over the doorway provide a rustic appeal to the space while also inviting light.

Isn’t it true that show-stopping giant ornaments are all you need to spice up the front yard?
