Deck out your front yard with outdoor Christmas decorations designed to delight your family, friends and neighbors. Christmas inflatables provide a simple, delightful way to get started. Take things up a notch with our wide range of large, animated and/or solar-powered figurines. Next, give your yard decorations a chance to shine with the right Christmas lights – choose from rope lights, icicle lights, string lights, path lights, net lights and novelty lights in a wide variety of colors, light types and bulb shapes. Add Christmas light projectors and spotlights for a dazzling show that will have all the neighbors singing your praises.
For people who live in hot or desert climates, the idea of decorating with garland and balsam can feel a bit out of place. Just because you don’t live in a snowy climate doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy Christmas door decorations, however. Give your beach house or desert abode a little touch of winter by creating a simple string of hanging white snowflakes to place above your front door. This DIY christmas decoration can be made quite easily – just use the old trick of folding a few sheets of white paper and making small random cuts. Finish with a spray of white glitter from the craft store to really give this look some sparkle.
Holiday time usually means more time—and more people—in the kitchen cooking and baking. A small tree introduces Christmas spirit without getting in the way. Green hobnail glass and kitchen utensils from the '40s and '50s inspired the mint green and cherry red palette of this tree. Hang utensils amid homespun touches such as popcorn garlands and crisp gingham ribbon.
Here's another way to fake the cozy fireplace experience. Draw a fake fireplace with painted chalk on canvas, hang your masterpiece from the wall, add stockings, and then surround it with floor cushions and blankets. This will be a total lifesaver if you live in a small apartment but still want to go big on the Christmas decor. Slide up a teeny tree for the full Christmas effect.

I do read you every day and even make most of the things you show me how to make but I don’t write you because it is very confusing how to go about it, I went to one of your old postings to write this and I’m not sure you will ever see it. Yes, there are a lot of us who follow you faithfully but are just not writers, Be sure, however, we are great fans of yours, I can’t write you on facebook because I haven’t figured that out either. I love your ideas and I love even more that you teach me how to do things. Thank you, Nancy Shaw

Decorating your door is the perfect excuse to take on a fun Christmas craft project. To create your own door star decoration, pick up an unpainted wooden star from the craft store. Spray paint it gold or any color of your choice. For a more rustic look, wrap the star in twine until every surface is completely colored. This simple door decoration is a unique and unexpected twist on the classic wreath. Complete the look with a beautiful string of garland, ornamented with gold string lights or bulbs to compliment your gorgeous (and completely DIY!) star centerpiece.
