Easy Designer Outdoor Holiday Decorations

Posted by Treetopia in Treetopia Christmas Decorating Ideas

Chic outdoor Christmas decorations provide a stylish welcome to your guests. Give your home and exteriors a dreamy designer look for the holidays with these dazzling DIYs and fabulous finds.

Ice Skate Wreath

Add a playful zip to your holiday exteriors by incorporating an eye-catching accent to a traditional Christmas wreath.

This ice skate wreath from Alderberryhill radiates with nostalgic charm and is surprisingly easy to make. If ice skating is a popular pastime where you live, there’s a good chance you can find a pair of vintage ice skates in your attic, flea market, or yard sale.

Simply take a skate, fill the opening with some artificial foliage and berries, and then tie it to an old-fashioned Christmas wreath. Add a red bow to the neck of the skate to make it look extra festive.

Malta Lanterns

Cast an alluring candlelit glow on your walkway or porch with multi-sized Malta lanterns, such as these black metal lanterns from Pier 1. With their clean, solid lines and old-fashioned look, these lanterns exude elegance and history that match the beauty of the Christmas season.

For a simple yet stunning outdoor display, place pillar candles, along with glittery acorns or holly branches, inside the lanterns. You can choose to hang the lanterns, place them on the steps, or simply lay them on a tabletop.

If you find their basic black too strong for your tastes, pick up a can of spray paint and give your lanterns a new wintry white coat or a lustrous, golden sheen.

Frozen Ice Ornaments

Give your outdoors a truly unique and festive look with these do-it-yourself ice ornaments. From slices of fresh fruit and branches to colorful baubles and plastic trinkets, these frozen décor are super cute and can be customized any way your heart desires.

As demonstrated in Tatertots & Jello by guest bloggers Emily and Jaime from Everyday Art, you simply need to fill various plastic containers with your pretty items, position a length of strong yarn, fill the containers with water, and then leave them in the freezer or your icy outdoors overnight. By morning, hang your fabulous frosted ornaments on your tree to add some pizzazz to your lawn or backyard.
