Put a Christmas Tree On Your Porch or Patio

One of the best ways to celebrate the holidays is to get a Christmas tree. The smell of pine can invigorate your soul and help you relax. So why not bring this iconic symbol of the holidays outdoors to your outdoor living space? From twinkling lights to glowing ornaments, your tree can put a smile on many people’s faces, including yours. Plus, it’ll give you one more reason to sit outside while the sun is setting and enjoy the stars.

Place Wreaths On Your Windows

Wreaths date back to many ancient cultures, from the Persions to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. They held various meanings in these cultures from power to life. Today, wreaths are most often found as decor around the holidays, associated with Christianty as they have come to symbolize eternal life and the never-ending love of God. Many people tend to think that wreaths go on doors. While this is true, wreaths fit anywhere and can brighten up a space with their greenery, provide ambient light, and offer holiday charm on your windows. They take up little space and can add a unique feel to your holiday decor.

Decorate Your Odd Objects

Many people hang Christmas lights on their home and on their trees. They also invest in blow ups and other lawn ornaments that you purchase in a store. While these can be great, if you are looking to spice things up for the holidays and add a unique flair, consider decorating odd objects that you have around the house or that you are not using. Some great ideas include your bicycle, your water features and bird baths, and old cars sitting in your yard. The sky’s the limit.
