Christmas is a little over a month away so there’s still some time to add outdoor Christmas decorations at your home. It’s been several months since I last posted here on Pond and Garden, but life got busy and the next thing I knew, summer was over. So let’s try to get this blog back on track, starting with holiday decorations for the yard.
A live evergreen wreath on the front door is a classic tradition for Christmas and you can never go wrong with this look. Add a mix of evergreens and berries to containers that once held summer annuals.
Potted evergreen trees look fun and festive with ornaments. A snowy day adds to the holiday vibe.
Use a mix of evergreen garlands and wreaths for your outdoor Christmas decorations. This historic home uses wreaths at the window instead of the front door.
I like to add a small Christmas tree on my front porch. Find a taller basket to place it in – especially if the tree needs more height. To get the tree to stay upright, place a large bucket of sand inside the basket and push the trunk into the sand. You might need to cut off a few lower branches to do this.
Get creative with outdoor winter containers. Group a variety of every branches and tuck in some berries and pine cones for a holiday look.
This gorgeous blue cobalt outdoor container holds evergreens, holly branches, red berries, and apples. A felt star ornament with a tiny bell adds a bit of charm.
Outdoor Christmas decorations look even better when it snows. Hang a wreath from a ladder – who says it has to go on the front door?
Use shatterproof balls to decorate outdoor evergreens. They’re inexpensive and won’t break if they fall from your tree or bushes.
Have fun with Mr. Snowman this holiday season. Clip a few branches from an evergreen tree to give him hair!
And finally, if you’re lucky to live in a green and red house, you don’t even need any outdoor Christmas decorations!
What kind of outdoor Christmas decorations do you put up for the holidays?
