Have you grown tired of the holiday decorations you’ve been displaying in the past couple of years? You’re lucky because there are a number of fresh holiday decorating ideas that you can use. But the problem is: it involves a lot of money to buy new holiday décor for your entire house. If you don’t have that kind of money, an alternative is to decorate your garage door since it’s the first section of your house that passersby will see. Here are some quick and easy ways to decorate your residential garage door for the holidays.
Attaching decals with holiday theme is the easiest and quickest way to decorate your garage door for the holidays. Decals are very affordable and can be arranged and removed easily so you don’t need to do a lot of hard work in taking them out after the holidays. There are a lot of holiday decals you can choose from such as alphabet decals, nativity scene decals and so forth. Only your imagination can limit how attractive your garage door will look like this coming holiday season.
- Outdoor Projector
Using an outdoor projector will bring life to your otherwise dormant-looking garage door. Getting a projector is another option you may want to consider if you don’t want permanent holiday decorations in your garage door. Outdoor projectors are one of the new innovations used in sprucing up the holiday spirit of your house. A typical projector has the ability to project whatever holiday theme you can think of, just as long as the theme is available in its data banks. This is a wonderful and unique decorating idea that can transform your garage door into a vibrant platform with ever-changing colors, images and characters. There are two options in doing this: you can buy a simple outdoor projector or you can rent a more sophisticated model with more features just for the holidays.
- Garage Door Gift Wrap
You can also cover your garage door with weatherproof holiday wrapping paper complete with ribbons to make it look like a giant gift box. Choose wrapping paper with the most gorgeous festive themes to easily attract attention from pedestrians. Add some eye-catching holiday message and passersby will surely stop to read it. You can hold the edges of the wrapping paper with colorful electrical tapes to keep outside moisture from ruining your garage door holiday decor.
- Holiday Lights
The most common and the easiest way to make your garage door look like its ready for the holidays is by hanging colorful and blinking festive lights on the door frame. With Christmas lights, you have hundreds of options to choose from. Only your budget will limit the type of holiday lights that you can hang on your garage door. The best thing about holiday lights is that you can keep them and re-use them every year each time the holiday season arrives.
- Create A Garage Door Snowman
You can also transform your garage door into a giant snowman. If the paint in your garage door is white, you already have your work halfway done. You only need to buy adhesive vinyl tapes with black and orange colors in your local electrical hardware shop. Cut six circles out of the black vinyl adhesive tape. You will use two of these circles for the eyes of the snowman and four circles to form his smiling lips. For the snowman’s nose, you will need to cut a long triangle out of the orange adhesive vinyl tape. Then paste it above the smiling lips of the snowman.
- Use Holiday Décor Garage Door Magnets
Attaching big holiday décor magnets is the quickest and easiest way to decorate your garage door for the holiday season. These magnets are sturdy, long-lasting and are able to withstand the elements like no other. There are different magnets you can choose such as snowflakes, twinkling stars, holiday messages, Santa Claus figures and many more.
- Create A Garage Door Mural
The holiday season is a fitting time to let out that artist in you. You can create a mural out of holiday themed images that you can buy from the stores or cut out from magazines and periodicals. If you have the time and the artistic talent to do it, you can even paint a holiday scene on your garage door. The paint should be able to withstand the snow and the elements all throughout the holiday season.
