Holiday Decorating DIY Style

Another Thanksgiving is in the record books and now the holiday season is in full swing! If mother nature doesn’t oblige with a wintry landscape this month, there of plenty of uniquely creative and festive ways to DIY decorate our homes for the holidays.

Here’s a few outdoor DIY decoration ideas that may inspire you to get crafty and leave the giant inflatable Santa in the basement this year…

Rustic Country Porching 

Create a truly rustic and welcoming winter outdoor space from natural elements found in your backyard. Spend a morning in the yard or park gathering pine cones, branches and greenery.  Arrange in stainless pails and illuminate with simple white candles or LED votives.


Seasonal Shabby Chic 

We love this idea for a salvaged fireplace mantle. A distressed neglected piece that once graced the living area of an old home is brought back to life with a shabby chic spin with fresh ferns and ruby red blooms. Great idea for outdoor holiday gatherings in warmer climates.


Frosty the Snow-Tire Man 

A unique, whimsical and festive way to upcycle tires! Now you’ll have a frosty friend to greet and delight all of your holiday guests.


Don’t Forget the Window Boxes 

Yes the colorful summer blooms adorning your windows have withered away with cooler temps, but that doesn’t mean the window boxes can’t be jazzed up with evergreen tree cuttings, bright red bows and ornaments for an additional holiday sparkle.


Deck Out the Garage Doors 

Here’s a fun way to spruce up your outdoor space this holiday season. Cut out your own decorations and back with peel and stick magnets to turn your garage door into everyone’s favorite snowman or check out the selection of holiday themed decals available online!
