We kept the outside of our home decorated simply for Christmas. We
hung fresh garland over our front door and use outdoor 3M Hooks which work like a charm (we actually keep them up year round, but don't tell anyone) I also added simple string lights to the garland, it looks so pretty at night. I took these photos just before the sun was setting hoping to share how it looks. I love how pretty our Christmas Wreath trio looks on our front door with the fresh garland, see more Christmas Wreath trio ideas
We also hung a
above our entry, its so pretty at night! It took me about 10-15 mins to put the star together, its made for indoor / outdoor use. The only issue I had with the star is the light bulb, we had to replace the one it came with, but other than that its so pretty and I look forward to hanging year after year! In the hanging planter next to our front door, I placed a small wreath on top, adds the perfect amount of Christmas cheer.
One of these days, I hope be a person that goes all out with lights everywhere!! I'm already dreaming up ideas for the outside next year, if I can find some good after Christmas Sales!
