Must-Have Outdoor Holiday Decor

One of the most exciting tasks of the holiday season is decorating your home! While it’s great to deck out the inside of your home, it’s always important to spruce up the outside of your home so everyone in the neighborhood can see just how festive you are.

If you’re short on ideas of how to make your humble abode seem like the most holiday-centric in the neighborhood, here are some must-have outdoor holiday decor.

String Lights

Whether you choose white or colorful, small or large bulbs, string lights are a holiday decor staple. You can hang them from your gutters, porch, or around your windows, among other places. Just make sure to use the proper materials to fasten the lights to your home — plastic clips are always better than staples since they don’t harm your exterior.


The smell of pine is one of the most welcoming to experience during the holidays — and the spiral sight of those evergreen leaves looks perfect hung on your front door or in windowpanes. You can have plain wreaths hang outside your home, or you can adorn them with holly, ribbon, or other small details.


You place them on every present you wrap during the season, so why not use bows in your outdoor holiday decor as well? You can purchase pre-made bows or get a big roll of ribbon and make your own. 

If you don’t want to make actual bows, wrap ribbon around your porch or use it to frame your doorway.
