The holidays are here, and with them comes snow, warm drinks, and cheer. One of the best ways to spread holiday cheer is to decorate your home for the season. Lights are hung on the roof, trees are properly trimmed, and giant inflatables of snowmen and Santa are sprinkled around everyone’s lawns. But one of the most under-decorated parts of the home may just be the garage, even though it’s a prominent part of the front of the house. In this blog, G Brothers Garage Door, the best garage door maintenance company in Lakewood, CO, will give you a few ideas you can use to decorate your garage for the holiday season. Choose your favorite or a mixture of a few, and make a truly unique design for your home. Keep reading to find out how to decorate your garage for the holidays.
Throw Some Bows
Bows look pretty on just about anything. On presents, in hair, adorning old wooden ships, there’s nothing a good bow can’t make better. But did you know that the same method you use to make presents look spectacular can be used on your garage door as well? You have a few options when it comes to putting a bow on your garage, with both looking great and adding charm to your holiday decoration display.
The first route you can take is to simply buy a giant bow from the store. Though you may not be able to find a bow big enough at your local grocery store, party stores and some super markets often have comically large sized bows you can use to adorn your garage door. If not, you can always ask a car dealership if they have any extra you can use. The second route you can take to decorate your garage is to make one for yourself. Again, a party store may be your best bet, or you can craft one from some wrapping paper you really like. Just be sure to affix the bow in a place that won’t cause it to fall off when you open your garage or if there are strong winds; tie it/stick it on so it won’t be able to .
Trim With Garland
Garland is a perfect accent feature around the holidays. It helps make man-made features look more natural while also adding festive colors to any part of your house. Real garland also adds natural pine scents to your home, which helps make the holidays even more enjoyable. If you’re looking to spruce up (pun intended) your garage door this holiday, using garland may just be the perfect option for you.
First off, decide whether or not you want to use real or fake garland. Both look great, but like we said before, real garland adds the smell of a fresh pine forest to your home. The next step is to acquire enough garland to properly trim your garage. The easiest way to decorate with garland is to trim the edging of your garage. But you can also add garland onto your garage, making patterns or simply outlining the natural crevices of your garage door. You can also add complementary objects to your garland, such as lights, bows, or beads. The only limits are your imagination.
Banners are great for announcing just about everything. Whether it’s a party, an engagement, or a great seasonal sale, a banner will always look great and get the point across. Nowadays, you can get a holiday-themed banner for your garage door. Most generic ones you can get from the store will say Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings, and may have a picture of a snowman or Santa Claus. A custom garage door banner, on the other hand, will allow you to choose exactly what you want on your holiday banner. You can do a family photo, pick your own holiday pictures, or choose a custom saying that fits your family best. Simply affix your banner to your garage door and get to spreading holiday cheer.
