As we enjoy Thanksgiving with our friends and family tomorrow, many take the days and weekend after Thanksgiving to decorate their home for the holidays and officially get in the holiday spirit. Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh on your lot builder, shares tips on how to bring holiday cheer to the outside of your home this season!
First, if you are a fan of classic holiday décor, consider highlighting your windows with bare garland and round wreaths. Keeping your greenery bare adds the right amount of both texture and color. Then, you can add your classic holiday hues to your porch or doorstep to tie in the holiday vibe.
Another fun holiday tie in to add to your home that is sure to create awesome curb appeal, is to add a “countdown to Christmas” tree in your front yard. Take an 8-foot tall ladder and giant metal house numbers to hang off the steps. Then, cover the ladder in a triangle shape with green garland to be in the shape of a Christmas tree. You can find step-by-step directions here.
Next, mix in textures and shapes in order for your porch décor to be seen up close and by far for those admiring your holiday home. Rosemary-wrapped snowflakes are a great idea to add texture and shape than can be seen from close or faraway.
Another great idea is to layer your greenery in the front of your home. Mix arborvitae in pots and artificial pine garland on the railings and around the windows. This will help add life to your outdoor space!
When it comes to holiday reds this year, consider adding weathered red hues. This vintage-inspired approach ties into brick tones and adds a great appeal to compliment your outdoor holiday décor. Taking a jute-covered holiday star made from paint sticks can add a rustic kick to your front porch.
Another great tip that not a lot of homeowners do, is to turn your outdoor lighting on at dusk or sunset. Doing this adds a very different and beautiful vibe to the outdoor of your home.
Lastly, add a playful glow to your lawn with oversized ornaments made from globe shades, food storage bowls and string lights. Cluster them together in odd numbers for even more curb appeal. It is best to use extension cords that blend in with your landscaping, to truly give it the look and glow of real ornaments on your front lawn!
All of these tips will have your home looking brighter than the rest this holiday!
