Christmas Garage Door Decorating Ideas to Try Now
Wrap Up a Giant Sized Present
For longevity, we recommend purchasing a plastic holiday themed table cloth (you can typically find these at your local retailer for under $10), as gift wrap. Paper gift wrap won’t stand up for long, trust us. If you’d rather, you can also use red or silver ribbon (the thick ribbon), which you can tie into a huge bow. Some homeowners even opt for adding a giant sized gift tag. Whatever option you choose, be sure that you securely tape each end, as this will ensure your giant present isn’t unwrapped before the big day.
Decorate with Holiday Garage Door Magnets
Did you know that you can easily make your holiday more festive by simply placing decorating holiday magnets on your garage door? While magnets will obviously work best on steel doors, you can simply tape them on if your door is manufactured from some other material.
Sold at many local retailers and online, most weather-resistant holiday garage door magnet kits include letters to spell out your favorite holiday phrase as well as decorative images such as trees, bows, ornaments and more. More elaborate kits can be found online as well. Know those fridge magnets you can find at the Dollar Tree? You can use those too!
Create a Holiday Light Show on Your Door
You too can create spectacular light shows. All you’ll need is a blank slat (your garage door is perfect) and an outdoor projector. With these items you can do one of two things; create a personalized greeting along with an holiday image or link your outdoor projector to change between your favorite holiday slides. Most projectors come with a timer and a stake that allows you to install it in your yard within minutes.
