Your fence is highly customizable. How and what you decorate with is only limited by your imagination – the sky’s the limit! What’s more, a fence is the first thing people see, so making it look good will make a good impression on your guests, neighbors, and even random passerby. First impressions are important, so make sure to make yours a positive one – if your neighborhood likes to embrace the festivities of the Christmas period, it just won’t do to stop at a wreath draped over the front door.
How You Can Decorate Your Fence
Burnishing your fence with garland is a quick and easy fix that speaks well of your commitment to the annual Christmas season garnishing. The bright green bush-like garlands and their resplendent red bows work especially well on a white picket fence. Also good for any kind of fencing are icicle lights, which give your home a tasteful, snowy charm – especially when lit at night. Let the warm glow of a lit fence guide you into your driveway at night. Give yourself the unforgettable experience of pushing back the gloom of night with the luminescence of wintertime cheer.
There are many ways to decorate your fence. You can use store-bought decorations, such as icicle lighting, an assortment of Christmas wreaths, traditional Christmas lights, you can hang Christmas ornaments on the spaces between the spokes – you can even decorate with what’s on hand! In the right hands, even objects commonly found in nature can be a part of the festivities.
For those who want to embrace a natural look this winter season, look no further than the pinecones strewn about your yard. Spray-painted the color red, green, white, or however you so wish, you can customize these all-natural ornaments to suit your tastes – and for extremely cheap! A little bit of glitter here and there will liven things up, or you could string little bits of twine through the pinecone’s grooves – or both! You’ll be amazed at how much fun you can have by decorating your fence with items you have lying around the house already. If you have children in the house, creating these homemade trinkets can be an exercise of bonding together, in addition to celebrating beauty.
The Different Styles of Decoration
If you don’t mind making a short trip to your local retail mart, you can find all sorts of premade decorations. Some accessories are made to enhance your fence, specifically, but your entire yard can become an accessory. Christmas wreaths are a universal ornamentation and can fit just about anywhere you fit them, but stars and snowflakes are another good fit.
You can drape them over your porch, your door, your fence, or anywhere that suits your fancy. You can combine different elements to make a more spectacular sight than what would have been provided on their own, such as a tree wrapped in white christmas lights, then adorned with bells or large, lit snowflakes to create a cosmic garden of light. The sky’s the limit, after all.
