Sometimes when decking out the halls, we forget that the garden needs some Christmas love too! After all, he was born in a manger, with the animals and the cold… not in a warm cozy inn! So isn’t it fitting we treat our outdoor space with some Christmas decorations? These DIY front yard Christmas decorating projects will make the season special in your garden, and for all those who pass by it! Our featured photo above comes from ‘HGTV’. They show you how to dress up trees with moravian stars.

Also from ‘HGTV’, make a simple wooden Christmas tree with reclaimed wood! Easy tutorial…

If you live in an area that freezes hard at Christmas, these frozen ice luminaries are an amazing way to light the garden path. Do it for a party, or just for your family! SOOOOO pretty! These first ones are from ‘Henhurst Interiors‘, and here’s what they said on making them… “Beautiful way to welcome guests to your party–illuminate your entry with luminaries made from frozen ice. Use half gallon milk cartons and empty wine bottles. After initial freeze, remove wine bottle and add more water to raise bottom level to accommodate a votive candle.”…

If that isn’t clear enough, ‘BHG’ offers you a full video on how to make ice luminarias.

This I’ve never seen, but love! Make these snow lanterns with the help of ‘Little Green Fingers’… Easy, just requires lot’s of snowballs! Great way to burn off some energy with the whole family, making a snowball pile for your creations.

‘Finding Home’ “found” the perfect Christmas decorating project… a reindeer! I love that this reclaimed wood reindeer isn’t too cutesy, but they don’t leave out the red nose. Gotta have some magic, people!

Last, we have this rustic log slice snowman by ‘Grandparents Plus‘. I couldn’t find a tutorial for it, but it looks pretty simple in design. Flatten the log slice edges where you attach for a tight fit,( and so they won’t tip over!)  then screw from the back or use wood glue and clamps.
