Wintery wreaths are the perfect holiday piece to add to your front door. This is also a fun and simple DIY project if you want to get crafty with the kids.

If you’re a big fan of vintage treasures, keep your eyes peeled for vintage skis at local craft fairs and flea markets. These make for a perfectly rustic and repurposed display in your front yard or porch. You can clean them up by adding a stain and then cross them together with a piece of greenery, pinecones or ribbon for the center.
Nothing spruces up the porch and front entranceway like an eye-popping evergreen planter. The combination of snow-dusted greenery along with bursts of red dogwood branches, bows, lights, and birch make for a merry and inviting welcome, guaranteed.
Spotlights for the Garden
Don’t forget to incorporate your garden into the decorating! A simple way to include your wintery vegetation is by using spotlights. You can place them throughout your garden to illuminate your snow-dusted trees and plants and highlight the architecture of your home as well.
Garland and String Lights
You can’t go wrong with the classic combination of garland, lights, and bows. This is an ideal holiday décor option to string along handrails, archways, the fence, and pillars. When you’re installing these, just be sure to securely each part on tightly so they can withstand the wintery wind gusts.
DIY Mason Jar Lights
If you have mason jars at home, put them to use with this fun DIY project. Place strings of small clear lights inside and then tie them with some burlap ribbon. You can place these clusters of lights anywhere around the porch or garden that can connect to an outlet.
