9. Christmas Outdoor Decorations – Candle path
Christmas Eve is marked by light and joy. Make it special. If in the ordinary nights, the path of your courtyard is dark, use this one night to change this. Before your friends come over, put some wreaths, candles and mason jars on the sideways of the alley and make it unique.
10. Green beautiful decorations
Since it’s winter and everything is white around your house, you have to add some color to contrast the surrounding decor. Do you happen to have a metal bucket or an old boiler in your garage? If the answer is yes, then all you need is to cut a round piece of metal and to fill it with pine or fir. As a bonus, you can add a red bow for a bigger impact.
