Christmas often brings out the interior designer within us all as we prepare to enjoy spending time with family and friends over the holiday season.
Your garage door provides you with a great opportunity to decorate the exterior of your home in a display of Christmas spirit.
Here are a variety of ways in which you can infuse your garage with a little bit of Christmas magic.
The Xmas Classics
There are a bunch of Xmas decorations that never go out of style because they evoke the classic sights of the holiday season. A string of Christmas lights is one of the most popular methods of decorating a garage door. They come in a variety of different colours and blinking patterns that allow you to create illumination that matches the overall look of the Christmas theme that you’re trying to go for.
Wreaths are another one of those classic Christmas decorations, which are typically affixed to the front door of a home. For your garage door, a wreath may be placed anywhere that will prevent the wreath from getting destroyed by the door opening and closing on a regular basis.
Adding finishing touches to any design helps to improve the overall look of the Xmas garage door decorations that you want to put up on your garage. Adding red ribbons to give the impression of a gift that’s been wrapped or in the process of being unwrapped adds flair to any DIY garage door decoration.
Other great Xmas garage decorations that you might want to add include mistletoe, frosted pine cones and snowflakes, among other imagery that invokes a winter wonderland.
Garage Door Magnets
If your garage door is made of metal, a decoration solution that you may want to consider revolves around garage door magnets that you can stick on the entrance. In addition to being easy to remove once the season’s over, you can arrange the magnets in a large variety of ways, adding to already existing decorations or creating a new one from scratch.
Full Garage Door Coverings
If you don’t want to bother putting together a variety of smaller decorations to create the Xmas spirit, you can opt for décor that completely covers the entire garage door with a single scene of Christmas. Made out of a durable material that you hang from the door, scenes are rendered in gigantic 7 x 16 detail. For example, one of them shows Santa telling a cat to be quiet as he lays out gifts for the entire family. Another full garage door covering depicts what it might look like if your garage was actually Santa’s barn.
Regardless of how you choose to decorate your garage for the Christmas season, you have a great selection of options to create the scene that you want.
