How To Make Your Garden Look Festive
Homeowners who like to take pride in their garden might want some ideas on how to decorate their outdoor space during the festive season.
Here are some ideas to inspire you.
- Decorate existing plants
The great thing about making outdoor areas look Christmassy is that you already have lots of foliage, trees and plants to work with, so make the most of these.
You could wrap hedges and trees in decorative lights that will certainly make your garden stand out, or add wire stars to window planters to add a festive feel.
- Create a cosy outdoor seating area
Even though the weather is getting chillier, and many of us will prefer to be indoors when the temperature drops, you could make your outdoor space as inviting as inside.
Ideal Home suggests doing this by fitting a bench in your garden, putting a throw over it for guests to warm up with, adding some decorative logs in a large rustic-looking tub, and fitting a bold and colourful wreath to the area. Treat visitors to a warming glass of mulled wine, and they won’t want to leave.
- Make doors stand out with pretty wreaths
Wreaths are perhaps the most popular ornament to add to a garden in the lead-up to Christmas, and, these days, you can find a huge variety to choose from.
You can add a natural feel to your home with a pinecone wreath gently spray-painted in white to look like snow, or you could add a pop of colour with an all-berry wreath. If you want to make the most of the foliage in your garden, you could use some greenery, such as holly or fern, directly from your backyard.
