10 Unique Outdoor Christmas Decorations Ideas

1. Frosty in a canoe

A canoe is a traditional Native American boat that has been used for thousands of years. To make your own canoe, you will need to find a large piece of bark and some twine.

The twine should be long enough to wrap around the trunk of your tree at least three times, so you will have plenty of room for decoration.

The bark is then wrapped around the trunk in an oval shape with one end extending past where it was originally tied on (this is important so we can attach our canoe).

Once all sides have been covered with bark and secured, paint over it with yellow paint or anything else that represents snow!

Finally, cut out a small hole in one side of your canoe so it can be easily pulled off when Christmas comes along – this way you won’t have to deal with removing any nails from your tree’s trunk!

2. Snowman Lollypop Topiary

  • Use a hot glue gun to attach the lollipops to each other and the styrofoam ball in a spiral pattern.
  • Make sure the lollipops are clean and dry before you start gluing them together! Otherwise, you may have trouble getting them to stick together well enough to make this project work out correctly.
  • Carefully paint on a face with acrylic paint or use markers if you don’t want an exact replica of Santa Claus (or whatever holiday figure) on your snowman topiary.
  • Attach a scarf to the top of your topiary with more hot glue so it looks like it is blowing in the wind!

3. Holly Jolly Pinecone Balls

Holly Jolly Pinecone Balls for Outdoor christmas decorations

Pinecones are a natural decoration and can be used in a variety of ways. You can use pinecones to make decorations, or you can decorate your house with them.

Decorating your home with pine cones is a fun way to get into the holiday spirit!

The best part about using pinecones as decorations is that they’re free, since you probably have some lying around outside in your yard.

4. Jingle Bell Snoopy Outdoor Wreath

Jingle Bell Snoopy Outdoor Wreath

You can make this wreath with a few supplies you probably already have at home, like jingle bells and a foam ball.

The best part is that it’s not only easy to make but also adorable! To start, cut the foam ball in half using your craft knife.

Then grab some glue and attach the bells evenly around each half of the ball until you get an even coating of them on there.

Finally, hang both halves together using hot glue or rope or ribbon and voila! You have an outdoor decoration that will delight all passersby!

5. Santa’s Sleigh Decoration

A garland is a long strand of something that’s used to decorate a doorway or other entrance. Garlands can be made of many different materials, including paper and fabric.

They’re often used as Christmas decorations because they’re easy to find in stores this time of year.

9. Whimsical DIY Snowman Display

This is a fun DIY project that you can do with the kids. All you need is a styrofoam ball, a styrofoam cone, and some pipe cleaners.

You can decorate your snowman however you like (we used googly eyes and buttons), but we chose to use felt because it’s easier to sew on than paper.

Once you’ve assembled your snowman, display him in any way that works best for your home!

10. White Christmas Tree with Wooden Decorations and Lights

White Christmas Tree with Wooden Decorations and Lights

You can use wooden ornaments and lights, a white Christmas tree, or any combination of these items to create your dream outdoor display.

If you’re on a budget, it’s also possible to use just one of these things at a time.

For example, if you already have a white Christmas tree but are looking for some unique decorations to hang from its branches, wrapping paper cutouts will work perfectly!


These decorations are a great way to bring the holiday spirit into your home. They’re easy to make, fun to put up and take down, and they look amazing! What more could you ask for?

With these festive decorations, you can create the perfect Christmas setting outside your home. Whether it’s an outdoor fireplace or a wooden sleigh, we hope that these ideas will help give you inspiration for your own decorations!
