Festive and Cheery Outdoor Christmas Decorating Ideas

O what fun it is to spread holiday cheer with outdoor Christmas decorations and sparkling outdoor lights that beckon everyone to your home with an enthusiastic welcome this season. Family and friends will get a warm welcome with these Christmas outdoor decorating ideas.

Front Porch Christmas Greetings

Traditional holiday decor would have you hang a wreath on your front door. Try hanging something new like a pair of lighted holiday mittens and add lighted white birch trees near the door. Enliven the space with a colorful rug and some decorative cardinal pillows.

 

Outdoor Lighted Christmas Decorations

Take a natural approach to your outdoor holiday decorating by placing lit reindeer among your landscaping. Their warm glow and gentle nature is a lovely way to celebrate the season.

Light Up the Night

Christmas decor has gone beyond the usual string or two of lights. Illuminate every corner of your yard. Consider a trio of lit gifts that sparkle, a row of glowing snowflake candlesticks or a welcoming solar snowman with a lantern.

Front Porch Christmas Decorating Ideas

A covered porch is the perfect place to add that special holiday touch. Place a pre-lit Christmas tree near your front door and add wrapped faux Christmas presents for a decorative display. Wrap pre-lit garland around pillars, posts and handrails and top them with festive bows. Add a row of lighted white birch trees along a patio or deck to set a festive mood.

Welcome Friends and Family

Rollout the red carpet to holiday guests with a festive front door mat. Add flickering LED lanterns, garland, and a wooden Santa, whimsical snowman or some other guest greeter. Create a personal touch with a written message like welcome or believe on a sign.

Country Christmas Decorating Ideas

A sled and skates propped by your front door create a cozy country Christmas display. Add a lit porch tree, a holiday sleigh, lanterns and lush Christmas garland for a cheery front stoop.
