What better way to prove to your friends, family and neighbors that you have “the most” Christmas spirit than by making your own outdoor decorations?
Anyone can go to Walmart, Target, Kmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or Kohl’s to get their outdoor decor, but it takes a real Holiday Cheermeister to do it yourself.
How to Make Outdoor Christmas Decorations
First, have an idea of what you want your yard to look like. Are you going over the top? Subtle and classy? By figuring out the style you want to go with, you can decide which materials you’ll need, and whether you can get them cheap and make some yourself, or if you’ll need to make a trip to Home Depot, Lowe’s or your other hardware store of choice.
Here are 27 DIY outdoor Christmas decorations and ideas that can put you and your home into the holiday spirit in no time at all.
DIY Outdoor Christmas Decor Things to Remember
If it rains or snows a lot during the winter in your area, make your outdoor decor from sturdy materials that will last through the season (and longer)
If using string lights or other lights, be sure to keep in mind how much length you’ll need to place your decor around the house and yard.
When competing with neighbors, don’t take a “set it and forget it” approach; instead, be sure to watch your neighbor’s outdoor decor updates over time and match accordingly.
Sometimes, less is more: although we love Christmas decor, often the best outdoor arrangements are those that take fewer elements and make ’em look good. But we still like seeing yards with 10+ Christmas inflatables.
We used to say things like “Christmas isn’t about the presents,” but let’s be honest. Presents are important. And they don’t have to be confined to your Christmas tree: with these outdoor lighted Christmas presents, you can bring the fun outside, too.
