The holidays are coming! At this time of year, we like to post at least one article about our favorite garage door Christmas decorations. Below we've listed five fun ideas for decorating your garage door at the holidays.
1. Wrap Your Garage as a Present
Wrap your garage door with two giant waterproof outdoor ribbons, one positioned horizontally and one positioned vertically. Cross them in the middle, and place a bow in the center. Your garage door will take on the appearance of a giant gift, wrapped up for the holidays.
This is an excellent decorating idea for anyone who doesn't use their garage door. If you do open your garage door on a regular basis, remove the bow to prevent it from getting in the way of your garage door operation.
2. Hang a Giant Wreath
Buy a massive wreath, or make a wreath with a circle of wire and artificial green garland. Place the wreath in the center of the garage door by hanging it from wire. This is not an appropriate decoration if you use your door, as the wreath is likely to get stuck on something in the door's opening.
3. Garage Door Illusion
Garage door murals are available online and can usually be found in home improvement stores. These murals are designed to be hung on the outside of the door and create the illusion that something impossible is happening inside the garage.
At the holidays, murals are available that can make your garage look like Santa's workshop or a winter wonderland. These decorations are easy to install, weatherproof, and most companies advertise that you can continue to use the garage door even when one is attached.
4. Twinkling Holiday Lights
String twinkling holiday lights around the opening of your garage door. To make the decorations even more beautiful, attach garland to the garage door opening as well. This decoration does not interfere with garage door operation. If you enjoy stringing lights around your home, this scheme will match with your other decorations perfectly. For a little extra flair, attach red exterior-grade ribbons to the garland as well.
