Elegant Outdoor Christmas Decorations Ideas

Christmas is a 'clause' for celebration so let's get started.

Sheepskin Cosy

If you are still celebrating Christmas outdoors because of COVID, throwing blankets and sheepskins can really save your day. You can make even the coldest December night warm by decorating every chair on the table set with a thick plaid wool throw blanket and sheepskin. Candlelights and garlands can add to the warmth as the coolest outdoor Christmas decorations.

Evergreen Simplicity

Outdoor Christmas decorations ideas do not only require leafy, lush greens. Sometimes, simplicity is King. A small Christmas tree along with a wreath, render a more classic beauty to this patio than fancy decorations could ever do. A white and red colour scheme helps ace the look.

Colour Bomb

Just because it's Christmas, it doesn't mean you have to stick with the traditional green and red. Unorthodox colour tones like teal, purple, royal blue, and fuchsia can help create a festive atmosphere on your porch. Adorn your front door with beautifully wrapped packages and large lanterns filled with colourful decorative ornaments for a bubbly blast of Christmas cheer.

Wondrous Wreath

Suspend wreaths made of grapevine on your front windows to add a bit of holiday cheer with just a touch. You can wrap string lights around the wreath, then add a rustic touch by hanging them from a burlap sack. Add Christmas colour and seasonal cheer by adding sprigs to the ribbon.

Spirit Skates

Time to look for your childhood ice skates! They're finally about to be of some use again! If you don't have a pair, you can get a vintage pair from your nearest flea market. Stuff some fresh green elements like holly berries, pine, and cedar on the top of the shoes as well as between the blades, and hang them on a hook on the door.

Pretty Porch

Utilise your unused porch corners to make a simple and vibrant display of greenery and candles. Compliment the look by topping a small table with a textured holiday cloth, pinecones, and assorted candles. Sign off in style with a bucket of birch branches and a holiday wreath.

Candy Canes

Model your outdoor decorations after the classic Christmas candy. Fill decorative candy in a white planter and use it as a unique front porch display. Make these decorations last the entire season by using plastic candy canes and weather-treated ribbons.

Frosted Fever

Use wintry planters or buckets to arrange bottlebrush Christmas trees to look like miniature frosted evergreens. Decorate the planter with votive candles to add a flickering and calm glow. Place the display atop a table on the front porch to accentuate the rest of your outdoor Christmas decorations.

Lively Lights

Transform your unused gas cylinders into miniature makeshift Christmas luminaries. Put a cranberry candle inside each cylinder, and stuff the space between the candle and glass with mini silver and red ornaments. Set moss in a plant door on your porch as one of the most stunning outdoor Christmas lights ideas.
