DIY Outdoor Christmas Decorating!

DIY Outdoor Christmas Decorating

It’s never too late to add a little Christmas cheer to your garden and yard, and it is one of the favorite spaces for families to share their creative sides. Let’s face it, we all love to wander our neighborhoods checking out our communities holiday decorations and lights, don’t we? So put a little effort into decorating your garden for the holidays this year, and share that Christmas cheer with passerby and friends alike! Here are TGG’s top picks for creative DIY outdoor Christmas decorating ideas! Our feature photo, above, is from Christy at Our Southern Home. I love this holiday porch! She filled a lantern with Christmas balls and pine cones instead of candles, and that amazingly cool sled? Actually from her childhood!

Any clear glass container will work for this impromptu holiday jumble that is so charming, from Bees Knees Bungalow… Perfect on a porch or patio… If you use candles, remember to leave the lid off while burning. Great use for old ornaments as well!



Kristy’s Corner created these DIY outdoor Christmas trees… This is just what I need to go with my deer and pond!

That Village House created this topiary out of old boxes and wrapping paper… Great idea, and so festive! You could also use Christmas vinyl tablecloths from the dollar store to wrap the boxes for more protections…Find out how she made these Christmas topiaries!



Find out how Club Chica Circle created these pumpkin snow men, complete with snow paint! How much fun are these!



Make this wood pallet Christmas tree with these instructions… Easy, and practically free, not to mention up-cycling!



From Martha, this outdoor Christmas planter is simply ornaments glue gunned (is that a word?) together, and placed on a bed of greens…I would use some wire to attach it to the greens for wind protections.



A Pretty Life in the Suburbs has a similar outdoor container, but I love how she amped up the color with her glitter  picks and ribbon!



From HGTV,  this pallet tree was created from reclaimed barn siding cut in different lengths and attached to a 10-foot 4 x 4 with wood screws. Then they added the little globe style mini lights. Love the burlap wrapped “presents”!
