When you begin decorating your home’s exterior for the holidays, don’t forget about your garage door, which takes up a large portion of your house, and can therefore be your biggest decoration asset if you do it right. Here are a few decorating ideas:
1. Vinyl Decals
Bring in the holiday cheer with vinyl decals. You might want to send out a “Happy Holidays” greetings with your decal, or put up stickers with Santa Claus, Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer, wreaths, or evergreen trees.
2. Paint It
Show off your artistic side by painting your garage door. You could use traditional red, green, gold, and silver colors, or if you’re handy with a brush, paint a holiday mural. It’ll quickly spice up your front yard, and you can easily repaint it after the holiday season is over.
3. Light It Up
String multicolored holiday lights from corner to corner on your garage door to invite the holiday cheer. Play around with this idea by creating shapes and patterns out of your light strings.
4. Tag It
Graffiti isn’t always bad and it doesn’t have to be reserved for the outsides of train cars. You can have someone do a holiday mural with spray paint to make it more festive. Just paint over it when the holidays are over.
5. Decorative Canvas
You can purchase canvases that are the exact size of your garage door and that boast pictures of your favorite holiday scenes. All you have to do is drape it across your door and secure it for instant holiday cheer.
6. Holiday Wreaths
Hang a beautiful wreath from your garage door for a classy, beautiful look. Get creative with this by hanging a bunch of wreaths across the door. If you have a three-car garage, for example, you might want to put up three big wreaths with a few small wreaths placed tactfully around each.
7. Wrap It
Treat your garage door like a giant holiday gift by wrapping it up in your favorite gift wrap. Don’t forget to adorn it with some ribbon and a holiday bow.
Hang evergreen and ribbon garlands across your garage door for a perfectly festive and classy effect. Use plenty of sparkle and gold for a particularly eye-catching display.
The decorations you choose for your garage door can make or break the attractiveness of your holiday-themed front yard. Keep these tips in mind and look for other creative ways to make your garage door the most talked about on the block.
