20. Fill the Slits of Your Shutters with Garland
This is an easy way to jazz up any home with big impact, not to mention that it allows you to use your resources in a unique way to make your home the highlight of your neighborhood. All that you need is some garland and a little ribbon to make your home ready for the holidays. If you have the time and the supplies on hand, adding branches, lights, artificial cranberries, pine cones, and even some ornaments can help to create even more of an impact.
Feel free to experiment with different colors and materials that already compliment your home’s exterior, and consider throwing sparkles and even DIY crafts into the mix, because the possibilities here are almost endless.
19. Hang Garland Around Your Front Door
All that you need to create some festive curb appeal is three things: a string of garland; a string of lights; and a string of ribbon. Begin by intertwining them beforehand, and then hammer a few nails in around the outline of your door. Then, drape the piece over the nails and secure it into place on all sides to keep it hanging upright.
Once it’s hanging, feel free to experiment even more with it. For instance, you could fasten some pine cones, branches, or artificial cranberries in the garland, or you could cover the entire thing with glittery sparkles.
You could even hang some ornaments in it if you choose, but just remember to keep the color scheme in line with your house. Doing so helps you to create a piece that is sure to dazzle your family and guests around the holidays.
