Instead of buying expensive outdoor Christmas trees, make your own using tomato cages with this tutorial from Two Twenty One.
Add some festive color your front porch by filling lanterns with shatterproof ornaments and decorating them with greenery and bows, like Dimples & Tangles did.
Speaking of Christmas porch decor, don't be afraid to use painted furniture, cozy throws and pillows to dress yours up as I did last year.
Take a cue from On Sutton Place and gather some pinecones and berries in a bowl to add a simple holiday touch to your front porch.
Brooklyn Limestone packs a lot of holiday spirit in her small Christmas stoop. I love the chalkboard sign and the boots filled with silvery ornaments.
Vintage items, like this sled and wagon Postcards from the Ridge used on her front porch are always great for Christmas
Wreaths aren't just for front doors. Take a cue from The Morrisons and hang one on a chair.
Paint a paneled door red and transform it into an outdoor sign like 320 Sycamore did.
Why spend big bucks on a Fixer Upper style magnolia wreath when you can DIY using this tutorial from Jolly and Happy?
I also love this Joy Wreath Sign from Fynes Designs; it's a great alternative to your typical evergreen on the front door.
You'll want to make an entire family of DIY reindeer from logs when you see how easy they are to make following instructions from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body.
Get the entire neighborhood involved in making these lighted Christmas balls using chicken wire. A neighborhood in Greensboro, N.C., where I live started this tradition years ago and it's a can't miss stop on everyone's holiday lights tour.
