In the midst of all the shopping, festive music, family gatherings, and traditions being carried out, everyone is decorating for the season. The holidays are upon us! Are you staying true to your style of years past? Searching for something new on Pinterest? Adding onto last year’s decorations? No matter your approach, don’t forget to decorate your fence and entryway to make it all part of the picture.
What’s Your Theme?
Depending on your home’s decorations, façade, as well as your fence style, there are many ways to decorate outside for Christmas. Try these ideas that fit your creative style:
- Traditional: We all have seen it- the look of a classic fence loaded with live or artificial garlands, big red bows, and warm string lights. This could also be coupled with seasonal foliage like pinecones and holly to enhance the traditional charm of green, red, and gold.
- Modern: A more sparkly approach might include white artificial garland around your fence and embellishing with silver and/or gold ornaments accompanied by soft white lights.
- Rustic: Still using the traditional live or artificial green garland, stars throughout and lighting with flickering golden lights could create a rustic feel. Adding burlap ribbons or bows and wooden flowers alongside snow-tipped pine cones, holly and berries would bring a cottage Christmas scene to life.
- Quirky: Let your imagination run free! There are Christmas decorations in stores and online that are a creative decorators dream! Bold, fun installments of blow-up lawn and fence Santa scenes are sure to draw attention and put passers-by in the holiday spirit. You could always create a themed set-up such as a snowman village, a candy land, or any other scene you could imagine!
Some Safety Tips to Consider
- Be sure the lights and extension cords are certified for outdoor use.
- If reusing previous years decorations, and even if they are new, inspect for damaged lights and sockets. Check connections and the integrity of your electrical cords.
- Always plug your lights into Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) to prevent shocking and make sure there aren’t more than three strands of lights per extension cord.
- Secure all decorations onto your fence so that in the event of wind and winter weather your decorations do not become neighborhood debris.
