A festive outdoor entry makes guests feel right at home before they even step inside – and it’s is easier than you ever imagined. Just follow these four simple steps.
1. Choose your garland.
Garland is easy to hang and creates instant holiday cheer. Pre-lit, battery-operated greenery makes it all even easier. Frontgate’s Classic Greenery is a great example – plus, it’s strikingly realistic, easy to maintain, and lasts for seasons.
2. Hang it.
Frame the door, encircle columns, drape over railings. For the door, you’ll need three garlands. Cascade two down the sides and connect the third across the top. A garland hanger makes this a cinch.
3. Shape it.
Fluffing is one of those key trade secrets that most people often overlook. Take time to shape every section until you have a full, natural look.
4. Finish with a pop of color.
Drench the garland or a wreath with pre-made bows and outdoor ornaments. Flank the door with drummer soldiers. Create dramatic visual impact, even in the daytime, with oversized outdoor ornaments and gift boxes.
One final tip. When you’re decorating outside, use items that are outdoor safe and weather resistant. Just plug everything in…and you’re done!
