Pretty up your patio for the holidays!

T’is the season to clad our curb appeal with all things happy and bright. But, what if last year’s decorations (or the year before that) aren’t looking so delightful? 

No worries! For a deck-the-halls refresh (or would deck-the-deck be more appropriate?), today’s post offers several tips and projects to pretty up your patio for the holidays using only a few store-bought items and stuff you probably already have around the house.

#1. Door Decor

Make your door jolly with a handmade wreath using cuttings from your garden (or a neighbor’s). Tip: be sure to ask if you can “borrow” a few cuttings to keep the spirits bright!

#2. Wrap Your Railing

Finished railing wrapped like a winter present! Faux greens, berries and lights make this decoration packable and available to use year after year!

It’s almost as if railings were designed to be wrapped with greenery, berries and lights! You can easily find these items (in faux) at an inexpensive cost this time of year. Oh, and an added bonus with faux decorative “fixings” is that you can reuse them again and again. Tip: be sure to store them individually in plastic ziploc bags or bins to keep them organized and neatly put away.
