Create a warm welcome by adding some festive magic to the outside of your home
Why not bring the magic outdoors by decorating a Christmas tree with extra baubles that didn’t make it onto your main tree? Make a feature of your front door by hanging a pinecone wreath at eye level and a fresh seasonal garland above the doorway.
Transform bare branches by hanging up paper decorations and glass lanterns. Spend a rainy afternoon cutting out a mix of snowflakes from white paper, attach ribbons and tie in a group.
Bring a festive feel to windows with seasonal stickers or write a message on the glass with a chalkboard marker.
Adorn your front door with a bespoke wreath – try transforming a plain faux or real wreath by decorating it with fresh roses, thistles, ivy and eucalyptus.
Create a stunning outdoor scene by combining twinkling candles with beautiful foliage. Make a frosty path more welcoming with border tealight holders – a row of twinkling candles will light the way and create a celebratory atmosphere for a Christmas party.
Make your outdoor seating more inviting on crisp winter days by adding layers of cosy blankets.
Fill a rustic trug with seasonal offcuts from your garden (or get them from your local florist) and craft a candle holder for a garden table with a braid of delicate gypsophila.
