Decorating our exteriors for the holidays is a first for us this year, and I couldn’t be more excited! This festive space easily came together with an artificial wreath and trees, Christmas lights and Veranda Essentials from The Home Depot. Let’s take a look at all the details and I’ll add styling tips along the way. Then I’m going to share some night photos so you can all see how it sparkles!
Mixed green for a natural look
One of my favorite elements of Christmas decorations is all the green! I decided to keep things simple with this gorgeous wreath of mixed pine mixes and two artificial trees. They capture the natural winter forest look that I love without maintenance and that will last for years to come!
The pretty wreath Includes battery operated lights that add a magical glow to our porch in the evening, and its generous size fills the doorway. Tip: When it comes to scaling, make sure you pick parts that are big enough to make a statement.
These 4 foot trees are also pre-lit! I put them in two galvanized resin planters for extra texture.
To fill in this festive entrance, I’ve added some vital information about the porch! The Home Depot has so many great options to choose from.
First I used two rugs for a layered look. I love this geometric indoor / outdoor rug for extra texture and that cute coconut doormat for functionality. Both can withstand the winter elements.
Second, I added these cute ones Copper lanterns for warmth and shine! Here they are all together so you can see the sizes. This set of three LED candles is the perfect match. Tip: Decorating with pieces of different heights and materials increases interest.
For a touch of fun, I built in this 5 foot LED snowman! My kids love it and it was so easy to set up. For even more winter wonderland charm, we have hung icicle lights along our roof. You will get a better look at the night photos! Tip: check out these light clips for attaching lights to your shingles or gutters.
Natural winter wonderland exterior decor
Here are a few photos of the finished room! Which piece is your favorite?
It’s so hard to choose favorites, but the mixed green wreath is definitely one of me! Cant wait to see this room dusted with fluffy snow. Let’s look at the night now.
There is nothing like that magical glow of the night when it comes to the exterior Christmas decor.
