DIY Outdoor Christmas Decorating


Our feature photo below, 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!

DIY lighted Christmas trees


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!

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”!

    Great low cost ways to decorate for the Holidays. I love the snowmen made from pumpkins! I never know what to do with pumpkins after Halloween is over! I also love the stack of presents it’s so fun and different. All of the ideas look like they would be easy to DIY.
